Wicklow SPCA Christmas Cards - Our cards, your pets!

This Christmas we will once again be selling Wicklow SPCA Christmas cards. This year however, they will be featuring pets from you, the general public. All you have to do is send in a high resolution picture of your pet and a little story about him or her.

A total of 5 pets will be chosen by our staff to go onto our Christmas Cards. All other entries then will be put onto a collage and sent out to each person who submits a picture to us. If you send in a story along with the picture, we’ll stick it up here on our website as well for all to see.

All entries must be received before the 15th of October, as the cards need to be printed in plenty of time before Christmas. We look forward to seeing your pictures are reading all your stories.

You can email us to the email address below.

Here’s Our Entry: :)

A Dog is for life:

xmas-doggiesRascal is the newest member to our family of rehomed doggies. He was found wandering around Shillelagh by a lovely woman (Claudia) who took him in and looked after him as best she could, however, with a number of dogs herself she was unable to provide him with a full time home.

She put him on DoneDeal.ie – free to a good home and we met them shortly thereafter to see if he would get on with Sharpeshill ex lodger Snipe the Springer.

Skippy the dog (from TheWicklowWay.ie) had unfortunately recently passed away from old age so we were looking for a new playmate for Snipe.

Rascal was a very nervous dog particularly afraid of mens voices or shoes – this gave us the impression that he had been mistreated by men in his past and had perhaps run away.

Rascal is aptly named having come out of his shell to learn how to play and make friends.
His bravery paid off as he now has a brother and sister ( we adopted a german shepherd who needed a new home also) who love him and gets to chase rabbits and play on the beach daily.

A dog is for life, and not just for Christmas and what a life he leads!


It’s Xmas Party Time!

merry christmas everyoneYes folks, it really IS that time of the year again – time to start planning your staff Christmas party.

If your business offers a unique Christmas Party Package why not let our readers know about it by contacting us here at The Wicklow Way.

Call them on +353 (0)1 287 0878 for details.

Happy Christmas

Some of our most familiar carols would have been sung here by the monks of Glendalough themselves in the 8 and 9 centuries.

Tea and coffee will be provided afterwards in the Glendalough Hotel courtesy of Pat Casey.  Assemble in the hotel car park at 7.15 pm.

Wrap up warmly and bring your own lantern/torch and singing voice.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.
