A welcome gift of no less than 100 bales of hay was driven the length of Ireland to help Donegal’s rescued donkeys.
The gift, which came from a big-hearted farmer in Co Wexford, was welcomed with open arms this week by the owners of the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary in Raphoe.
The new donkeys arrived in Raphoe from Mayo last weekend and were each given names – Buffy, Primrose, Toffee, Jessie, Bitsy, Hilda, Jonny, Rocky, Oscar and Gus.
The donation is the latest in a long number sent to the centre after they recently sent out an SOS for support.
“This is a great donation but everyone has been so good,” said a spokesman.
