A curious sight greeted anyone who happened to be passing by Dublin’s Henry Street on Wednesday or Belfast’s Arthur Square on Thursday: a scantily-clad PETA supporter lying on a person-sized plate, drizzled with sauce, alongside a pile of vegetables and a gigantic knife and fork.
Yes, these were the latest instalments of PETA’s iconic “Relate to Who’s on Your Plate” demos, which get passersby thinking about what – or indeed who – they’re eating. As World Vegan Month gets underway this November, we’re in the Emerald Isle to illustrate that we’re all … Read more.
Irish model, reality TV star and actor Tiffany Stanley is urging her government to give fur the cold shoulder and ban cruel fur farms in a new nude ad for PETA, shot by photographer Volker Fleck.
Sexy Stanley is determined to help put an end to an industry that confines 225,000 minks every year to small cages and then rips the skin off their tiny backs. She explains why she’s passionate enough about this cause to bare all: “The fur industry shows Ireland in a really bad light. The sooner we end … Read more.
Irish rockabilly sensation Imelda May has just written a letter to Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Marine and Food, Simon Coveney, imploring him to ban cruel fur farming in the country.
The Dublin-born singer, whose hits include “Mayhem” and “Big Bad Handsome Man”, already helps animals every single day by sticking to a vegetarian diet and, like all people with a heart, would never wear fur. Now she’s going public with her disgust at the fur industry, which still causes animals to suffer and be killed every day in Ireland.
She writes in … Read more.
Compassionate people the world over are dead set against fur. Killing an animal for his or her skin is just inexcusable. But did you know that 73 per cent of fur farms are located here in Europe and that in Ireland minks are still having their skins ripped off every day to feed the global demand for animal pelts?
Here are 12 reasons why this shameful situation needs to end right now:
- Banning fur farming in Ireland would save 225,000 mink each year from being imprisoned, abused and slaughtered.
- Fur farms

Irish beauty, TV star, former Miss World and daughter of iconic singer Chris de Burgh, Rosanna Davison can now add a new title to her list of accolades – advocate for animals. The long-time vegan has just appealed to Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, to end Ireland’s cruel export of live animals.
Rosanna may be accustomed to the jet-setting lifestyle, but there’s one type of international travel that she’s dead against: transporting frightened cows from Waterford to Tripoli in a gruelling and highly stressful 10-day boat trip to a Libyan abattoir. … Read more.

BAFTA and Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston has appealed on behalf of PETA and the Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) to Simon Coveney, Minister for Agriculture, Food & the Marine, to ensure that Ireland honour its commitment to ban fur farming in the upcoming Animal Health and Welfare Bill.
“This issue means a lot to me as I grew up in Ireland and used to wear fur. I had a change of heart when I learned how minks and foxes on fur farms are crammed into tiny, … Read more.
Holding heart-shaped signs that read, “Ireland: Fur Out, Love In”, four sexy activists – two women wearing only red panties and spiked heels and two male “cupids” wearing only red boxer shorts and a pair of wings – led a protest held jointly by PETA and Irish group Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN) on the eve of St. Valentine’s Day. The amorous activists aimed to turn up the heat on the Minister of Agriculture to include a ban of fur farms in the impending Animal Welfare Bill.
“We’re bringing our big hearts … Read more.

I don’t know much about sports. Ask me the score of the last football match, the name of a top rugby player or the rules of cricket and I won’t have a clue. Still, I know that a sport should be fair. There should always be a chance for the other team to win – otherwise there’s no point. By that definition, stag hunting (or any form of hunting for that matter) is not a sport. It’s torture masquerading as fun.
Fortunately, this barbaric “sport” has at last … Read more.
