Bark in the Park is a 4Km sponsored dog walk taking part in Tymon Park, Tallaght

The purpose of the event is to raise money for the Irish Blue Cross, a veterinary charity that helps up to 27,000 sick animals every year.

Trotting alongside the main event there will be lots of events to keep dogs salivating, including prizes for dog with the best bark and dog with the waggiest tail - and lots more.

Last year, the sponsored dog walks raised over €16,500 for the Irish Blue Cross, and they expect over 100 dog owners to show up on the day.

Anyone looking to take part is advised to arrive at the playground near the Wellington Lane entrance between 2 and 2:30PM in order to register for a prompt start at 3PM.

The afternoon start will be perfect for anyone feeling a bit ruff after a late Saturday night. So if you’re looking for something to do this Sunday, get down to Tymon Park, it promises to be a howl.
