Goats deployed in unique conservation project in Howth

A herd of goats - and a newly employed goat herder - are being deployed in north County Dublin this morning, in a groundbreaking conservation grazing project.

Twenty-five Old Irish Goats have been relocated from the hills of Mulranny in Co Mayo, to Howth Head, where they will be used to reduce gorse cover in an area that has been plagued by wildfires.
