  1. I wish I could be with you but I live in Tipperary and having no car can’t get there. My thoughts are with you and it hurts me dreadful to see animals treated badly. I don’t understand how any so called humans can act like this. Good luck on Sunday and good weather. Margaret

  2. A fabulous idea to raise funds and awareness at the same time
