I’ll be honest, I didn’t know much of Fionnuala Moloney Carey and her Timaru Kennels outfit ahead of the National Greyhound Awards in early March.
That was going to be a problem given the fact that I was to make a citation, honouring her with the Welfare Award for 2019.
A phone call, a week in advance of the awards, changed that. It was very clear from early in our conversation that she was a woman who loved greyhounds, loved being around greyhounds and, more importantly, loved looking after greyhounds.
She was a deserving winner of the award but it was difficult to put into words the sheer amount of love and devotion she affords her dogs. So, I’m delighted to say in recent days, YouTube has given us a peak into the operation and the love shown for their greyhounds. I highly recommend you watch the video and why not share it on social media.
