Protesters Rally Outside Dáil Amid Horse Abuse At Shannonside Foods In Straffan

Hundreds of people gathered outside the abattoir on Saturday

An investigation has been launched into animal welfare at the plant.

Protesters outside the Dáil are calling for transparency and accountability from the Department of Agriculture.

An investigation has been launched into animal welfare at a plant run by Shannonside Foods in Straffan.

Operations at the plant have been fully suspended, after footage emerged of horses being severely mistreated in an RTÉ Investigates programme.

Co-Founder of Moyvalley-based charity My Lovely Horse Rescue, Martina Kenny, says they're not asking for much from the department.
