Memorial walk donkey dies

A WOMAN who was walking around Ireland with a pet donkey in memory of her Irish boyfriend has been left heartbroken following the animal's death.

Agnieszka Jablonska (30) was three months into the walk in memory of Waterford-born boyfriend Maurice Sullivan (51), who was mauled to death by two farm dogs in Malaysia in January 2011.

But the Polish-born woman's trek was cut short when 15-year-old Mucci took ill outside Ballintra, Co Donegal, following an accident and had to be put down.
