Kildare North TD James Lawless met with My Lovely Horse Rescue in the Dáil recently. My Lovely Horse Rescue is a not for profit organisation which recues abandoned horses around Kildare and the Greater Dublin Area. The charity, which has its roots based in Kilteel, was set up in 2011.

Deputy Lawless said, “I was delighted to attend the engaging discussion on animal welfare with My Lovely Horse Rescue centre in Dáil. I knew My Lovely Horse Rescue when they just started in Kilteel and it’s great to see how they have grown their services and setup.

“A badly needed resource and the politicians that attended the session all pledged to work together on improving legislation and resources. Well done to Gino Kenny TD for organising the briefing. I look forward to visiting the newest My Lovely Horse shelter, just setup outside of Johnstownbridge and working with them in the future.”
