Lambs on this farm have been given orange raincoats to protect them from the cold and wet weather.
The enterprising farmer has issued them to the lambs, which are a bit more delicate when born, which means instead of being kept indoors they can run around outdoors with their more sturdy brothers and sisters.

Witnessed this yesterday along the [Royal] Canal [behind Croke Park], the heron swallowed it whole! Like a snake eats! The local guy with the boat we were in said he had never seen one do that in all his years. I managed to get these shots with my camNOMNOMNOMNOM
“My neighbour lives away from the farm, so I usually check the sheep for him When I was there on Saturday, I caught the flash of an eye with my lamp and saw a fox carrying the dead lamb. I took careful aim and took the fox with a shot to the neck.
