Mayo Goats Relocated To Dublin To Help Reduce Wildfires In Howth


A herd of goats are being moved to Howth Head in Co. Dublin in a bid to reduce wildfires.

Twenty-one Irish goats who were reared in Mulranny, Co Mayo have been released in North Dublin with one job - reduce gorse.

Goat herder, Melissa Jeuken, beat out more than 100 applicants to bag the job of managing the new arrivals.

The North Dublin area has experienced a number of wildfires this year, with approximately 65 acres burned in the area.

The goats will will graze in several sites to help reduce gorse and the probability of fires.

The new kids 'round the block will also be installed with GPS tracking, which will allow the herd to move freely in the area.
