Deer Alliance HCAP notes with regret the recent death of Lyall Plant, former Chief Executive Officer of Countryside Alliance Ireland. Lyall was a great supporter of Deer Alliance and our programme for safe, humane and efficient control of wild deer by trained and competent hunters and was always a useful sounding board for ideas. Lyall also contributed greatly to the establishment of the Irish Trophy Commission. He will be greatly missed by the deer stalking community throughout Ireland.
