Report from EGM & update

Hare Pic

A General meeting of the Irish Coursing Club representatives was held on September 19, to update members on the recent detections of RHD2 in lagomorphs. A veterinary presentation was made dealing with the specifics of the virus and implications for the Irish hare. The Executive Committee outlined the most appropriate strategy in terms of protecting the Irish hare from this disease and will continue to work with government bodies, private veterinary practitioners and scientific researchers with that outcome at the centre of all our endeavours.

Please note we can now confirm that a meeting between the NPWS (Dept of Culture, Heritage & Gaeltacht), the Dept of Agriculture and the Irish Coursing Club will take place on Thursday October 3rd in relation to the recent detection of RHD2 in lagomorphs.
