This is the story of Rosie the dog.
On Thursday 27th June, Mary and Benny O’Grady discovered this poor dog (estimated to be about 10 months old) in a ditch in the middle of nowhere in Ballina. The dog was in a very distressed state and would die unless veterinary attention was received immediately.
A call was made to Frankie Coote, the Clare Dog Warden/Inspector, who rang Mike Madden in Newport as there is no Dog Warden operating in North Tipperary - local authority officials say that an appointment will be made very soon after the last warden retired.
