A Wicklow farmer has won a substantial judgement to compensate him for losses following a dog attack on his sheep flock. On 22 September 2013, Seamus Flood’s flock was attacked on his land in Lake Park, Roundwood. Neighbours arrived and the gardai were called. Two dogs were involved in the attack – one was a Rottweiler.

Neighbour Stephen Dalton admitted ownership of the dogs, which were put down.
