Charity appeals for help rehoming chickens

The Littlehill Animal Sanctuary has appealed for people to come forward to help rehome battery hens.

The charity is holding a number of hen rescue events across the region in the coming weeks.

It works to rehome hens which ordinarily would be send to slaughter.

They’ll be in Castleblayney, Clones, Cavan and Monaghan on Saturday to meet people interested in rehoming. They’ll be in Carrickmacross the following Saturday (October 26th).

The charity’s patron, actress Pauline McLynn explained more when she spoke to Northern Sound News earlier:
