RE­AC­TION TO MAEVE MOLLY’S SOAP­BOX ON BAN­NING FOX-HUNT­ING

En­ti­tled to her ur­ban opin­ion, but I don’t agree. I don’t fox hunt but I wouldn’t ban it ei­ther. Donogh O Logh­lin via Face­book

On a cru­elty level alone, it should be banned. John O’Kelly

I don’t use the word should, sorry John. As a boy I hunted pheas­ant and duck with my fa­ther. Went fish­ing and still do with my good buddy (great for men­tal health)… You know what’s cruel – bomb­ing in­no­cent women and chil­dren in Gaza and other Arab coun­tries. In­dif­fer­ence to mass star­va­tion in sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa whilst su­per­pow­ers pil­lage re­sources. The de­struc­tion the war in­dus­try has done on this planet is be­y­one cruel. As I’ve said pre­vi­ously, the ev­ery­one is en­ti­tled to their o«in­ion° ½d fight vor your right to ex­press yours. Peace and love brother. Donogh O Logh­lin.

THE HOT SPROCKETS AN­NOUNCE SPLIT

No sup­port for Ir­ish bands. No grants, no air­play and pay­ing to play – that’s why I left the coun­try. Paddy Usher via Face­book

Nowhere to go for Ir­ish acts. They reach a cer­tain level of pop­u­lar­ity and that’s it. Hard to break out of Ire­land and grow with­out back­ing. Sad. Dave Gar­rett

100%. Rob Smith
