Two goats in Dungiven have been causing a stir in Dungiven since they turned up at the weekend.

Sinn Fein Councillor Sean McGlinchey says people have complained to him about the animals. He said he has spoken with the owner who has told him he intends to move them elsewhere.

“People have complained to me about the goats and are concerned about the safety of children in the area,” said Colr. McGlinchey. “They’re also concerned about the mess the goats may cause. I have spoken with the owner and he says he hopes to have them moved.”

Colr. McGlinchey added: “To be fair, it’s no place for goats in the middle of a housing estate.”
