Poll: Should restricted dogs be kept as family pets?
Meath councillor Alan Tobin has caused a fracas by saying he is “absolutely delighted” about a sign warning about certain breeds.

MEATH COUNCILLOR ALAN Tobin has caused a major dispute online by writing on Facebook that he is “absolutely delighted” a sign warning about certain dog breeds has been erected in his constituency.

Reacting to the comments, Páraic ÓSúilleabháin, a PhD researcher in dog bites at NUI Galway, said that targeting dog breeds is a research method that is “at least 20 years out of date”.

This morning we are asking: Should restricted dogs be kept as family pets?
