Lead Cllr Lisa O’Donoghue said “We started this event in 2013 due to complaints we had received from park users, as a dog owner at the time I helped organise the event and I’m pleased to say with support from local businesses and volunteers it has gone from strength to strength. Our ‘for fun’ dog show has regular attendees, plus new dogs strutting their stuff and allowing their owners to socialise in a safe environment. You don’t even need to have a dog to come along, bring a picnic and spend the afternoon making lots of 4-legged friends”
