“I can never understand why the housing section has to deal with stray horses, stray horses should be handled by the Department of Agriculture,” said Cllr Willie Aird.

The Portlaoise Town Councillor was speaking at the Joint Policing Committee meeting, after learning that the estate management section of Laois County Council has dealt with 165 complaints and seized 57 horses so far this year.
