Some very special furry friends will be at a major Christmas Market in Laois this Sunday, November 28.

There are nine guide dogs doing a vital job for owners in Laois and some will be at the Laois Guide Dogs stand at Portlaoise Christmas Market.

Dick O'Connell is a member.

"We want to thank everyone for their continued support over the past year, and to say we will be at Portlaoise Christmas market selling our Christmas cards and calendars," he told the Leinster Express.

"Without these donations and their faithful companions, life for our members would be very difficult," he said.
