Twins in Waterford

\ Claire Nash

Emily Fraher was bought Blue Telex sheep last year to rear and feed by her dad Paul as a present for helping him on the farm during lockdown and when schools were closed. Emily stayed up during the night with her dad lambing as they were coming the wrong way but it ended well as purebred twins were born. She named them biscuit and bubbles. / Claire Nash
