You would see minks an odd time round here but nobody really bothers with them and I've noticed that there are considerably more foxes than there were when I was growing up. EC countryside management schemes have probably encouraged these revivals through the conservation of wildgrown habitats.
What's the story with Minks though, are they non-native or just antisocial and should we really be trying to make them extinct in Ireland?
"Do not be misled by the promises of politicians. Remember that the whole history of Ireland is a record of betrayals by politicians and statesmen, and remembering this, spurn their lying promises and stand up for a United Ireland - an Ireland broad based upon the union of Labour and Nationality." - James Connolly.
