Over to you Ireland

Evidently on the immortal Facebook there has been a conversation about tails and it was written that docking was banned in Ireland in 2008. Obviously the EFG is flattered to know we are seen as the source of all information but we aren’t totally up to date on the Irish question. The Schedule to the Protection of Animals (Amendment) Act 1965 that specifically permits the docking of tails in puppies up to one month of age by non-veterinarians was certainly there in 2008 and, as far as can be found, is still on the statute books but our legal expert isn’t an expert on Irish law. Can anybody help?
