Five of the SAGE Team are heading to Dublin tomorrow to join our comrades across the water to make a stand at the Irish Derby. This is a huge event in Ireland and we're expecting it to be quite different to our usual demos at Shawfield. But greyhound exploitation is huge in Ireland. 83% of the greyhounds raced in the UK originate from Ireland. The Irish Government funds the industry despite being fully aware of what goes on behind the scenes. Thousands of greyhounds killed each year before getting anywhere near the racetrack then more killed at some point during their "career". We're all hoping for a massive turnout to let the Irish authorities know we won't tolerate greyhound abuse any more.
