FIVE elephants go for a stroll around Youghal

FIVE ELEPHANTS went for a stroll around Youghal town yesterday ( March 13th 2012) and were so impressed they even might hang around for the inaugural ‘Moby Dick Festival 2012′ which takes place this weekend.
The elephants belong to the Courtney Brothers Circus which is currently in town (near the Youghal Greyhound Track). People were surprised to see the huge mammals as they paraded through the main street and back streets then on towards the lighthouse hill where locals and tourists alike took pictures of the spectacle. These photos were sent in to Youghalonline by local photographer Will McGoldrick.

  1. ….. I think it is an absolute disgrace that animals are still being used in circuses in this day and age .. if people did a bit of research into how these animals are kept and the miserable lives they lead, they would boycott any circus that still has animals.
