Votres in Buncrana may have noticed a “ruff” looking new politician sniffing around the election trail in recent times – a puppy called Shep Van Der Hund.

Staff at Sign Bank at Milltown Business Park in Buncrana came up with the quirky idea to add a little humour to the campaign, which has now begun in earnest around the peninsula.
