Rescued by the DSPCA in January after slipping into the river a water tributary (top) at Kylemore Road in South Dublin.

So badly injured was Barney they only discovered he was a she days later and quickly renamed her Bernie.

It was touch and go for a while but…

Previously: This Was Barney On Monday

After slipping down a steep bank into water near the Kylemore Road in South Dublin, Barney had been wandering in the stream for several hours.

UNTIL this dramatic rescue by the DSPCA and fire officers from Dolphin’s Barn.

Barney was suffering from hypothermia and it was feared he wouldn’t make it.


Barney this morning munching on hay.

Says an officer:

Barney is in the DSPCA rehabilitation stables receiving care and treatment after his ordeal and we will be looking for a new home for him in the near future.
