A seven-year-old girl has told of her delight at getting to deliver her first lamb on her family's farm. 

Lauren Dixon, from Killucan, Co Westmeath, pulled the lamb on Monday morning and described the experience as "amazing". 

"I pulled the lamb and I got to hold it after," she said. 

"My favourite thing is feeding the lambs, feeding the cattle, giving them fresh water and giving them straw and stuff." 

Ms Dixon loves spending time with her father Wayne on their family farm and now she can’t wait to get to pull another lamb someday.
