New Leaf owner Mairead O’Keeffe has been so moved by the remarkable work of the Animal Magic Rescue Centre in Killmallock that she is taking on a personal challenge to fundraise for them. Mairead will be climbing two of Ireland’s highest mountains in a single day.
Carrauntoohil is the highest peak in Ireland. Located in County Kerry, it is 1,038 metres (3,406 ft) high and is the central peak of the Macgillycuddy’s Reeks range.
Mount Brandon is a 952 m (3123 ft) mountain on the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. It is the highest peak of the central mountain range of the Dingle Peninsula and the ninth highest peak on Ireland.

Animal Magic Rehabilitation Centre are doing amazing work:
Displaced, sick, injured or orphaned wild animals need to regain full health and acquire the skills needed to function normal and efficient lives. The successful return of the wild animal to it’s natural habitat is the result we try to achieve.
Wild animals are bought to us suffering from sickness, injury or orphaned due to actions either directly or indirectly caused by humans. We provide our patients with the very best possible chance of survival. The contributions, often donated, of our local vet have saved and improved the quality of many small lives.
The diversity of creatures that come in to us is amazing, Pigeons, Hobby birds, Raptors (usually Kestrels, Sparrow Hawks, and Peregrine Falcons), Hedgehogs, Foxes and even the odd reptile or two.
Empathy, respect and protection for wildlife and their habitats is very important to us and as it is, we humans that pose the greatest threat to wildlife, it is important that we give something back.
