People dressed as sheeps and cows lead a demonstration with more than 100 supporters of ARAN [Animal Rights Action Group] and Compassion in World Farming (CIWF) before delivering a letter into the Department of Agriculture,to bring attention to the ongoing live transport of tens of thousands of Irish farm animals who are sent abroad to suffer in ships. They await slaughter in countries that most often have little or no animal welfare standards….

Didn’t take long for BBC to get a negative story about us, to put us back in our place as regressive rednecks.
The Children’s Rights Alliance today welcomed the decision by the European Committee of Social Rights which found, once again, that Ireland is violating children’s rights due to its failure to ban corporal punishment in the home.
Tanya Ward, Chief Executive of the Children’s Rights Alliance, says:
“We are very pleased with today’s decision as this firmly puts the spotlight on Ireland to ban smacking. Up to now, Ireland has permitted corporal punishment of children in the home, which is out of kilter with most other European countries. In recent days, the world has witnessed Ireland’s decision to introduce marriage equality and is now asking – how can children not yet have equal protection in the law?
Today’s decision by the Committee finds that Irish domestic law does not: ‘prohibit and penalise all forms of violence against children within the family, in certain types of care or certain types of pre-school settings. This includes acts or behaviour likely to affect their physical integrity, dignity, development or psychological development or wellbeing’. This is mainly because parents or carers can rely on the common law defence of reasonable chastisement in our laws when disciplining children.
The Children’s Rights Alliance also welcomes the decision by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs to ban corporal punishment in foster care and in all childcare settings. He will also review the common law defence of reasonable chastisement with the Minister for Justice and Equality.
