The Fire Fighting Goat Herd based in Dublin has welcomed 37 new babies this year.

These precious little goats are already hard at work, grazing the land to prevent gorse fires as we approach the summer season.

Fingal County Council and the Old Irish Goat Society is calling on the public to help name one of the Kid Goats.

A spokesperson for the local authority said;

"We are encouraging everyone to get creative with their name suggestions."

The Council has urged people to consider names that reflect the Old Irish Goats' heritage and roots, or they work they do to keep Howth gorgeous.

How To Enter

Entries must be submitted by 5pm next Wednesday, the 17th of May.

A shortlist will be drawn up by the judges, and then they'll go out to public vote.

The lucky winner will be invited to meet their named Kid Goat for a photo shoot on Howth Head.
