Sinn Féin councillor Anthony Flynn has described the ‘Dragon Safari’ set in Slieve Gullion as “a magical experience through the woodland.” The world’s first Dragon Safari is the brainchild of local children’s art charity, Sticky Fingers and involves a mile long trek through Slieve Gullion forest during which participants encounter some of the friendly dragons which come alive once every 5000 years. Speaking to Newry Times, Flynn said, “I really didn’t know what to expect when I received the invitation to the Dragon Safari but I and some of my party colleagues decided to go along and see what all the fuss was about. “I had seen local press coverage of dragon sightings in Newry and South Armagh and I had even seen footprints and eggs which had been left by the dragons. I felt sure all of these events were somehow linked and I wanted to know for sure that no dragons were lurking around my house so I decided I had to go to the Safari today to find out once and for all.” He added, “To tell you the truth I couldn’t sleep a wink last night thinking about the dragons but I was so relieved to meet some of them today and find out that they are all friendly and not scary at all. “I would recommend this day out for local families and I hope it is not another 5000 years before the dragons are back. I wish to commend the organisers for bringing a novel and exciting project to south Armagh.”
