A FAMILY of swans going on a Sunday afternoon ramble in Clarecastle held up traffic this afternoon before Angela Kelleher managed to divert them into her front garden.

The family, two adult swans and seven cygnets, are currently resting there while local authority staff are expected to arrive later and take them away.

“They were all walking along the Ennis-Clarecastle road and all the cars were stopped behind them, it was unreal to see it. We managed to veer them off the road, got them into the driveway and closed the gate after them,” said Angela.

Her father and some neighbours assisted her and she says the swans seem very tired after their afternoon walk.
