Ireland is home to one of Europe's largest puppy farms
Close to the village of Moate, on the border of Westmeath and Offaly, is home to one of Europe’s largest puppy farms. This is yet another of Ireland’s secret shames.
Ireland & U.K. Breed 15,000 horses a year for the racing industry
Only a third of these horses make it on to become racers. Hundreds of whom actually die, or are killed, during the course of a race, just because they are no longer of any use to their ‘owners’.
We have campaigned for animal rights for over ten years
We have protests and events twice a week, every week, covering a number of important issues, please join us by getting involved in the fight for animal rights!

The National Animal Rights Association is a voluntary, vegan, consistently anti-oppression, non-hierarchical animal rights group. 

We have many ongoing campaigns, and are constantly out spreading awareness through our protests, demonstrations and information stalls.

The organisers of NARA are based in Dublin City but our numbers are grown every day and continuing to build a strong national network across Ireland.

Recent Campaigns


Foxes are dug out of their dens, thrown in front of the hounds. the poor exhausted, frightened fox is caught and then shredded to bits by the hounds - as the riders look on, satisfied with their kill for the day.

Greyhound Racing

About 30,000 greyhound pups are registered every year between Ireland and the U.K. Many are killed by breeders at a very young age because they fail to reach racing standards.

Animal Circuses

Animals don’t belong in circuses - a fact which should be obvious to most people. But sadly, hundreds of animals continue to be enslaved in these travelling menageries every year.

We are involved is various other Animal Rights Campaigns all over Ireland. Check them out here

If we stop at nothing then nothing can stop us.

One of the best things you can do for animals is to go vegan, and we are here to help you with that! Contact us for a free ‘Go Vegan’ pack, which includes recipes, nutritional information, shopping guides and advice based on your location!

Our Mission

We believe that animals already have rights
but that they are just not yet recognised.

We all follow a strict vegan diet. We feel that one cannot campaign for animal rights while consuming any animal products. Apart from the murder and extreme suffering involved, nothing that comes from an animal is ours to take. To do so would be a rights violation in itself.

No forms of animal testing are acceptable,
whether it be for cosmetics or medical research.

All of these ‘materials’ were once part of a living creature, who did not volunteer themselves to become another product. Testing on animals does nothing to further medical progress for humans – and even if it did, it wouldn’t make it morally right or acceptable to use animals in this way.

Animals are not ours to use for entertainment or profit. Animal circuses, greyhound racing, horse racing, zoos and aquariums are all animal-abusing industries that take advantage of animals’ vulnerability – merely to satisfy a perverse need to see, and make money out of, another species being degraded and exploited.

We also recognise rights for insects. They too are living beings who deserve a life free of exploitation and suffering. 

As a non-hierarchical group, NARA welcome anyone willing to help in our fight for animal rights. However, we are an intersectional group, and believe that both animal rights and human rights are intrinsically linked. In this regard, it goes without saying that we are intolerant to racism, ableist, sexism, anti-choice, homophobia, transphobia or oppression to others in any way.

Animals are not ours to wear. As well as it being totally unnecessary, humans have no right whatsoever to wear fur, leather, wool or silk.


It’s now January and as many of our supporters are aware, Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium have taken a High Court injunction against activists - ‘The Greyhound 6’. This injunction, which was granted on an ‘ex parte’ basis on 29th November 2019, includes a 50 metre “exclusion zone” at protests outside Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium indefinitely.

The Greyhound 6 had their first court appearance 18th December 2019, but it reached no conclusion. They will all be returning to the High Court on the 28th January 2020 for what is set to be - at the very least - a 2 day hearing to defend their constitutional right to protest.

All 6 have wonderful legal representation, and are confident that justice will prevail. In the meantime, they are asking for your support for the campaign to ban greyhound racing in Ireland, and would also appreciate solidarity in court on the 28th January 2020. We will post further information in due course. Please share this around and tag your friends. The Greyhound 6 will need support far and wide.

Social network

We are constantly moving forward and making a big difference with small steps. Our passion for achieving rights for animals is a constant force and we are extremely excited about what the future holds for Ireland and the individuals we fight for everyday.

Animals have the right to

We don’t believe in animal welfare (e.g. bigger cages), we strictly believe in animal rights (e.g. empty cages). You can never make murder or abuse ‘humane’. Animals are individuals like us. They love, fear and feel like us, so why oppress and exploit them just because we can?
