Well isn't Ireland just a shining light in the dangerous dog department

Well apparently, dog banning (of which they had quite a long list already in place) wasn't working so Northren Ireland has decided to add on another group of breeds.

Here is a link to the story.

The new plan claims that other breeds such as the German Shepherd,
Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher should be restricted and forced to be
leashed and muzzled in public under provisions within the Order to add
breeds or types not currently covered. The same provision to add new
breeds or types is also included in the DDA and although Defra claim to
have no plans to add breeds or types they do state it is always under

Should the recommendation be acted on, the restrictions would bring
Northern Ireland more in line with Southern Ireland which already
requires the leashing and muzzling of American Pit Bull Terrier, Bull
Mastiff, Doberman pinscher, English Bull Terrier, German Shepard
(Alsation), Japanese Akita, Japanese Tosa, Rhodesian Ridgeback,
Rottweiler, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and to every dog of the type
commonly known as the Ban Dog (or Bandog) and to every other strain or
cross of every breed or type of dog described. It will however retain
the ban and mandatory destruction in relation to the American Pit bull
Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and the Fila Brasiliero.

I counted 13 breeds already on the list for Ireland.

Didn't see the Irish Wolfhound, Irish Terrier, Kerry Blue, Glen of Imaal, Wheaten's, or Irish Setter's on the list. Better add them all as well. Apparently your aim is to become a CAT country.
