    The next celebrity we're revealing tonight is the amazing singer and one of Irelands foremost singers, Eleanor Shanley, from Leitrim. She is renowned for her unique interpretation of Irish and Roots songs. She has been at the top of her profession since her first appearance as the singer with traditional group De Danann, and subsequently with the inimitable Ronnie Drew. She has also toured with Christy Moore and Sharon Shannon and as a soloist both in Ireland and abroad, where she is much in demand at top music festivals.

    "Hello there. Eleanor here. I'm doing a skydive for Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR) in September with a bunch of people who love animals enough to throw themselves out of a plane! I'm going to face my fears, close my eyes and go for it. I am a follower of the very entertaining AHAR Faebook page and I really hope that I can help them to raise funds for the new premises they and the animals need and deserve so much. Please help by sponsoring my skydive here. I would really appreciate your help as I believe this charity is very worthy of our support. Thanking you all for your support. Eleanor"

    Wel…

    There is only one way to say good night from AHAR. And that's with a story.
    Well meet So-Me.
    She was left on death row in Kerry pound at 9 weeks old and by the time her five days were up and I got to take her home she was dying of parvo.
    I picked up her tiny body dripping in blood and she smelled so bad. The wardens had rang me to be warned she needed a vet fast.
    I rushed her to the Ark vets and she spent three weeks there fighting to live.
    I'll always remember the day they rang to take her home. I cried.
    I had gone every day to see her little face, it was so hard not to be able to hold her.
    But the worst part was to come many weeks later saying good bye and good luck when she went off to her new home. Boy did I cry. But I trust Gail (Allsorts dog rescue) with my life and I knew she would find the perfect home.
    Tonight I got an update photo from Inger Smith-Petersen.
    Well I was in tears again.
    My little baby girl all grown up and looking amazing.
    Looking forward to my trip to the UK and meeting you again So Me. See you very soon xx

    Just got a lovely pm from Aoife.
    At home now after a wonderful two days in Co Kerry, volunteering at Animal Heaven Animal Rescue. Thank you to Suzanne Gibbons for having us down to her rescue centre. We absolutely LOVED it. So many dogs to wash, groom and walk, as well as Horses, dogs, foxes, pigs, kittens and parrots lol. So much FUN!! I urge anyone that is thinking about volunteering to take a trip down to Killarney to help Suzanne!!! We will be returning soon ? x x

    Meet Sky.
    He is three years old. Rottie/collie. Loves female dogs but not so good with dominant male dogs. Can be food aggressive (but he was chained in a dark shed for most of his life and lived on waste bits of scraps to keep him alive)
    He adores people, children and is so loyal.
    He has had the worst life any dog could wish for. Please can someone offer him a loving home?
    I adore him. Give him one chance? You wont regret it.

    I want to share a story about a dog called Sky.
    He came from Kerry pound, very aggressive and so angry. I begged the wardens to give me one chance with him. They made a deal, if I could walk in and catch him. I could take him home.
    As I opened his gate. I just saw teeth. I knew I had to be brave for his sake and just get him out of there. I hooped the slip lead over his head and just dragged him as fast as I could to the jeep and flung the passenger door open and tied him to the seat. (As I had more to go in the back)
    To say it took forever to get him to trust is an understatement.
    But look at this for a photo….
    I think it says it all. He's ready to find his own home at last.
    His name is Sky, cos the sky is the limit now for this beautiful loving boy who everyone gave up on xx

    Pippa also got spoilt. She had carrots, apples and bread as treats from Nicole.
    Nicole had no experience of horses, pigs or animals on a huge scale until she came here from Dublin. She is only 8yrs old. But I must say, fantastic child. She dug in and worked so hard. I am sad tonight to say goodbye to Aoife, Paul and Nicole but they promise to be coming back soon.

    Passion loved her bath yesterday. She hates the heat. But now she is in season (looking for a stallion to have a foal) so she is in really bad form and sulking like a baby because of course she wont be getting her dream date lol. So we are in for a tough week of strops.
