One hundred and forty sheep perish in Donegal farm fire

A full garda investigation has been launched following a farm fire where one hundred and forty animals perished.

The shed was made up of a number of sections. It was covered by a tin roof. There was a large number of straw bales in the shed. 

Fire services attended the scene but unfortunately the fire in the shed was found to be at an advanced stage which resulted in the sheep perishing.
