Letter from the Editor

Welcome!

After we focused so much on dogs in last month’s magazine – I said no way – no more animals!

But of course, I just couldn’t resist! So, here we are again with more dog stories for all you animal lovers out there.

After we focused so much on dogs in last month’s magazine – I said no way – no more animals!

But of course, I just couldn’t resist! So, here we are again with more dog stories for all you animal lovers out there.

This month we meet the amazing Catherine Magill who dedicates her life to rescuing unwanted dogs. She has set up a new animal rescue charity in the city St Columb's Animal Rescue & Rehoming and she needs your help.

Whether you can offer a new home to a puppy, foster an older dog or simply offer a donation or some of your time, Catherine wants to hear from you. She and her volunteers are doing great work – so get involved if you can.

And another young lady who is very much involved with her dogs is Shannon Conn from Magilligan who trains champion border collies.

Shannon isn’t your average 16 year-old who spends all her time on her phone and chatting to her friends. Instead this ambitious lady is training sheep dogs on her family farm and she has already won awards for her skills and even sold one for £7,000!

And finally this month, congratulations to all the runners who competed in the SSE Walled City Marathon – especially to Local Women’s Grace Nelis who was running in aid of Gaelscoil Éadain Mhóir. Well done Grace! We have lots of pictures from the race inside this month.

Until next month,

Kim
