Compare the support for the racing industry with supports for victims of domestic violence

Yesterday was UN DAY OF OPPOSITION TO VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN and I think it speaks volumes about Ireland’s commitment, that the likes of Women’s Aid, gets a fraction of the public money given to the horse and dog racing industries. ‘State-sponsored cruelty’ is how some would describe these industries, and I was happy to support a Dáil motion questioning cruel practices within the Greyhound industry and calling for no further increase in public monies to it.
