Firefighters worked for hours and into darkness in a bid to rescue sheep stranded due to flood water in Tynan.
Specialist animal rescue crews from Newcastle and Belfast, along with a fire crew from Armagh, were despatched to Tynan Abbey on Thursday afternoon after reports of the stricken flock.
A NIFRS spokesperson commented: “The crews worked with the farmer to rescue the sheep using a Specialist Rescue Team boat.
“They worked into darkness in challenging conditions to ensure 52 sheep were successfully rescued.
“The incident was dealt with by 7pm.”
All’s well that ends!
