Newpark Baby Llama Named - Llama Del Rey

The Newpark Hotel was recently delighted to announce the arrival of a brand new female baby llama! Born in our very own farm on the 20th of July we were keen to decide on a name for this beautiful animal.

It was decided instead to let the public choose the name and from the beginning, there was a lot of interest. With 100's of entries from all over the country on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter it was finally decided by our team that Lindsey Lonergan's suggestion of Llama Del Rey was the perfect name!

Llama Del Rey is available to view at the Newpark Farm, as well as a number of other animals!
