RABBITS: The season for hunting rabbits started with the first frost about mid-October and ended by about April. The trade was reckoned to be worth £500,000 per annum at a time when De Valera said ‘No man is worth more than £1,000 a year’.  During the war prices were 2s 6d per rabbit. In the early 50s it was 2 shillings the equivalent of two pints of stout.
