Eight Days a Week

Seán Kilkenny adores animals that some other people despise. He is a huntsman who is devoted to his pack of hunting dogs whose job it is to follow and 'break' the fox.

In Niamh Gallagher's documentary, she eavesdrops on Seán's dealings with his dogs and listens to him talk about the etiquette of hunting the and his passion for the hunt. He dismisses the hunt objectors, saying that more foxes are killed by cars than dogs.
