Adopt A Sheep

In the area of the Ring of Kerry Mountain Sheep have been in the hill and on the roads for many hundreds of years. Every year thousands of tourist come to Ireland to see the beautiful countryside and make photographs of the Ewes and Little Lambs wandering around, enjoying their freedom.

The Goal of Adopt a Sheep is to preserve the Irish Heritage of mountain Sheep, living in the mountains in the scenic area of Moll’s Gap on the Ring of Kerry (Ireland).

In doing so also the heritage of a traditional Family Farm in this Special Area of Conservation is saved for future generations.
