RTE Investigates: Greyhounds Running for Their Lives – A shocking insight into the horrors of Ireland’s nasty greyhound industry.

The programme “goes behind the public facade of greyhound racing to reveal SERIOUS ANIMAL WELFARE ISSUES in an industry that costs Irish taxpayers millions of euros every year”.

Jon Williams, the Managing Director of RTE News has described the programme – which contains “some scenes viewers may find distressing” – as a “shocking, disturbing investigation”.

After watching, please join calls for a ban on greyhound racing and hare coursing and an immediate end to the Irish Government’s massive greyhound industry grants.


Say NO to the cruel greyhound industry – don’t attend greyhound races or fundraisers/hen parties/office parties held at greyhound tracks

Join us in demanding an end to the government’s massive grants to the greyhound industry – €16.8 million for 2019, bringing to around a quarter of a billion euros the amount handed over since 2001. This must be ended. Contact Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe now.
