The remains of another horse have been found in South Tipperary.

The grim discovery was made at Suir Island in Clonmel yesterday comes just over a week since 7 carcasses were removed from the Knocklofty area.

17 horses were taken alive from the field and brought to the Pound in Cork – the Action for Animal Welfare Ireland group have homes ready for these animals.

A meeting is being held tonight regarding the situation and Mayor of Clonmel Councilor Catherine Carey is encouraging people to support the work of the group.
