Ever wondered what our pets get up to after we leave for school or work each day?  A new comedy The Secret Life of Pets from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures promises to reveal all.

Coinciding with the release of the film, the quirky antics of some of Ireland’s best loved celebrity pets have been captured in a special photography exhibition that lifts the lid on what they get up to when their A list owners aren’t at home.


Pets of celebrities including rugby hero Gordon D’Arcy, TV star Aoibheaan McCaul, singer Mary Byrne and health food fanatic Roz Purcell, feature in ‘Petography: The Secret Life of Pets Exhibition’, which shows pets getting up to mischief while their famous owners aren’t around.
