Dogs can be costly creatures. Ask Leitrim County Council.

Just over a year ago accounts showed the authority had doled out
€132,000 for local dog control  – higher than the outlay for 2016.

The good news is that owners picked up sixty-five of the canines,
new owners were found for nearly half while 70 were handed over to animal welfare groups.
