History of the Hunt

Start Year: 1928
End Year: N/A
History: The Hunt was established in 1928 as a trencher-fed otter hunt and hunted otter until 1989. Since then it has hunted mink which are now widespread in Ireland. A former Master, Mr Eddie White, led a campaign to have the otter protected from trapping and shooting. This campaign was eventually successful under the 1976 Wildlife Act which only allowed the otter to be hunted by hounds under licence. Although the otter is abundant in Ireland, licences have not been sought. This pack changed its name from the Cork City Mink Hunt in 2011

Hunt Country

Hunt Country: The country covers all rivers in west and north County Cork and south Kerry, the main ones being the Awbeg, Blackwater, Bandon, Flesk, the and Lee and their tributaries. Best centres are the towns of Macroom and Kanturk in County Cork.
