    It’s the question of our time.. Where did any of us get out hats? What even is a hat? I find myself asking this question everyday.

    I’m more interested in that SVP headline. Damn right. There’s nothing wrong with horse meat burgers. To destroy them when people are going hungry is unreal. Give them away FFS.

      I think the issue is not that they have harse in them, its that the harse might have god knows what in it. I’m guessing you wouldn’t have had the same bright idea about British Beef in the 90s?

          No issue with horse meat that’s bred for eating. While if a horse was a pet or a racehorse an was given any drugs that might pass down that wouldnt be too healthy now would it!?

            ever heard of the Kidneys? And by the way I’d much prefer to eat a cared for horse than a antibiotic filled cow

            horse meat is higher in protein and leaner than beef

      I agree. Once the deception end of things is gone and people are willing to eat them, then why dump them?

    I genuinely don’t know what I’m supposed to direct my ire / be vaguely amused at here, the Roy Keane article or the horse burgers. Come on Broadsheet, we plebians need better signposting, you should know that by now.

      From that Wiki

      In 732 A.D. Pope Gregory III began a concerted effort to stop the ritual consumption of horse meat in pagan practice. In some countries, the effects of this prohibition by the Roman Catholic Church have lingered and horse meat prejudices have progressed from taboos, to avoidance, to abhorrence.[22] In other parts of the world, horse meat has the stigma of being something poor people eat and is seen as a cheap substitute for other meats, such as pork and beef.

      Another thing we can blame the church for.

        I suspect it also has a tie to the large part horses played in other parts of Irish life; racing, showjumping, workhorses etc.

        Read that too. Typical.

        I notice we are one of the few countries that still regard eating horse meat as “taboo”. An Bord Bia should jump on this opportunity to promote it now that meat-eating consumers have generally expressed no fear of eating horse if labelled horse. Maybe packaging it up under it’s French name Cheval would work too.

    Half the country’s filling its kids up with chicken nuggets made of beaks, claws, connective tissue and other “mechanically recovered” delights.

    Is that Beatrice? It might be Eugenie – I always get those two mixed up, which can be embarrassing…
