Sports Coalition update, 17/2/2015

Members of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice, Defence and Equality witnessed a demonstration of various national and international disciplines of competitive target shooting in Harbour House Sports Club last Thursday, 12th of February.  In doing so, they got to see first-hand the types of firearms actually licensed in Ireland rather than the impression left on them following presentations and an earlier meeting with An Garda Siochana.


Following the recent commitment of support from R.I.S.E. (Rural Ireland Says Enough), a date for the first joint public rally, to be addressed by Mr. Des Crofton, Coalition Spokesperson and NARGC Director, will be announced imminently.


The member associations of the Sports Coalition are pleased with the campaign’s progress. In particular, they have expressed their gratitude to Des Crofton for his committed leadership and strategic planning.
