The Errigal View Petting Zoo has had to tell families the disappointing news that they cannot reopen this weekend due to flood damage.
The petting zoo in Gaoth Dobhair was hit by flash floods on Tuesday 27th August. All the animals were taken to safely, but as heavy rain continued during the week, the owners were forced to close the farm to the public.
It was hoped that Errigal View could reopen this weekend, but many parts of the zoo are still not ready for the public.
“It was a lot worse that we thought,” owner Connie Gallagher told Donegal Daily.
“The fencing is all damaged and the paths are unwalkable. We will try to open next week, but we want to tell people to follow our Facebook page for updates.”
