We were delighted to get a visit from Garda Patrick from the dog Handlers Unit. He introduced us to Snipe, a 10 year old, English Springer Spanial. Snipe is from the area originally and has been a very successful sniffer dog. He has found drugs, guns and money. The second dog we met was a12 month old labrador called Rex. He is a sniffer in training. We all learned so much and had great fun. Go raibh maith agat, Garda Patrick!
