FAIR City star Rachael Pilkington has united a host of famous names to call on the Government to ban fur farming in Ireland.
Animal-lover Rachael is working with the Campaign for the Abolition of Cruel Sports to ask Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney to put a stop to the controversial practice. She has rallied a list of supporters, with 271 Irish celebs backing the cause. Hollywood star Saoirse Ronan, Amy Huberman, Grainne and Sile Seoige and Love/Hate's Peter Coonan are some of the stars who have added their names to a 13-page plea submitted to the Department of Agriculture last Friday.
