Along with the post begging for help was a video of a donkey, hopelessly stranded in rising floodwaters. "There is a donkey stranded in deep flooding in Kilorglin. I need a boat and men to help."
The donkey's owner originally sounded the alarm about his lost donkey, and AHAR was quick to organize a rescue.
And luckily the code red Facebook post brought Mike Fleming of the Killorglin rowing club, along with his boat.
Rescuers used rope and put a floatation device around the donkey's neck. They carefully began to reel him in.
"Picture this," ARAH posted to Facebook. "He was my last chance and phone call to beg for a boat. He listened and he drove down to meet me. I knew straight away he had the guts to do it. No negative attitude just come on girl we'll give it a go. He braved such dangerous water to help us save him."
After the donkey was pulled from the waters to safe ground, his face is the beautiful picture of relief.
