The Funny Side to Irish Animals

The Funny Side to Irish Animals

Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, as we all know, has more than its fair share of ‘colourful’ and, dare we say it, eccentric characters!

During our travels around the country we have discovered that the same can also be said of many of its four-legged inhabitants – our lovely Irish animals! From the north coast beaches of Northern Ireland to the rugged north coast of County Donegal we have been lucky enough to bump into a number of them.

These are a few of our favourites so we hope you enjoy them 🙂 View Post
