Taking the Dog for a Walk

A slow news day 30 years ago saw two dogs hitting the headlines.

RTÉ News featured a story about a labrador bringing a small terrier for a walk holding the lead in his mouth.

Other stories that featured in the news on 26 July 1984 included: the murder of an IRA informer; lay-offs at the Clover meat factory in Waterford; and a lorry drivers blockade at Dublin port.
