Claire has paws for thought
WE'RE used to seeing her tough side as she grills politicians, but Claire Byrne – who is pregnant with her first child – showed her softer side as she helped to launch an initiative to end the needless destruction of the nation's unwanted dogs and cats.
The RTE broadcaster brought along her recently spayed pet Labrador 'Rosie' for the launch of SpayAware.
It aims to reduce the toll of cats and dogs that have to be destroyed by persuading more owners to spay or neuter their pets.
