One farmer in Drumholme is delighted following a very rare arrival on his farm.  Philip Timoney’s donkey Nellie gave birth to twin foals three days ago  

Philip Timoney has been breeding donkeys for 45 years and told the Donegal Democrat  that only 1.5% of donkeys give birth to twins worldwide and only 10% of these survive.
