Welcome to Cian’s Kennels

Cian’s Kennels is a charitable organisation set up in March 2020 in memory of Cian Neary, our beloved 15 year old son.

Cian loved life generally – his love of fine food, socialising with his friends & joy found in sports & team games was clear to all who knew him but his greatest love was animals, of all shapes & sizes!

Our world fell apart when Cian was diagnosed with hepatosplenic T cell lymphoma in September 2018. While in hospital in the early days of diagnosis we asked him if there was anything we could get him to make him feel better. We already knew the answer!!….. and a few weeks later Cooper, a gorgeous golden Labrador puppy joined our other dog & cat as part of our animal family.

Here's some more photos of the wonderful morning we had welcoming our 24 incredible Malin to Mizen cyclists into Longford πŸ’™πŸ’›

Thank you so much to the staff at the Dept. Of Social Protection, where both Donal and Dearbhla had many happy working years, for hosting us.

We had coffee, cakes and chats and it was such a lovely and emotional morning - Brendan and Evelyn held everyone's attention with some wonderful words as to why this fundraiser in particular means so much - scroll back on our page to watch the video of those speeches πŸ“Ή

None of this would be possible without our sponsors, especially our main sponsor Sherpack Ltd

Cooper had a wonderful morning meeting all his adoring fans, he was absolutely shattered afterwards!

Feel free to tag away and also, feel free to donate 😏

Our @malin2mizen_2021 cyclists welcomed into Adare by Niamh Barrett & Barry Murphy, parents of the late Cliodhna.
Cian & Cliodhna spent time together on St Johns ward in 2019. They shared a love of animals, Cliodhna’s chosen favourite being of the equine family. Sadly Cliodhna also lost her battle with cancer at just 16 years old.
We so appreciate the heart-felt support of this family who have shared this difficult road with us & we know that they appreciate the joy that Cians kennels will bring to families now & in the future.

The man, the myth, the legend - our very own Brendan Considine ❀

We couldn't be prouder of our Fundraising Director and his team - honoured to have you as an integral part of Cian's Kennels ❀

Thanks to Humans of Longford for the wonderful photo of a man who finds it hard to stand still!.." yea,I suppose you could call us nuts...but it's all for an excellent cause - Cian's Kennels, all monies raised on the cycle goes to Cian's Kennels...

...we're cycling Malin to Mizen in memory of Cian as well as my brother Donal and sister Dearbhla..3 incredible people all of whom left this world far too early...we'll always remember them...

..we're doing 665km in 6 days and this is just a pit stop ( Sunday morning ) from Carrick to Birr...there are 23 others taking part,including my son Caoilin...7 wonderful ladies too...

...the weather has been challenging but the sponsorship,support and support team are simply magnificent...the support and generosity has been just incredible...

...we're here now at the Dept. of Social Protection..Fiona Morgan and Fergus D'Arcy set it up for us and we're most grateful...

...Donal worked here ...he loved his work here...loved his colleagues here too..so this pit stop is special...Dearbhla was a wonderful sister and mother....she battled hard for 5 years and when asked how she was, she always answered " I'm grand, how are you ? "...she was the life & soul of any room...both were....

...the 23 others doing this cycle means so much to us as a family...they each have an enormous effort into this...it gives us..great solace...

...myself ?....

...well, I was a Garda for 10 great years based in Dublin, loved it...

...then I coached soccer in America for 8 years...New Orleans and Penn. ...great job, great weather and the music scene in New Orleans was tops, brilliant....

...so, returned and with Geraldine my partner ,we're running the Investigations & Training Company..we built a house in Keadue.....

....I'm on the board of Cian's Kennels...I think everyone in Longford is aware of Cian's Kennels..if not, just google it...but it's an amazing Longford based charity.....

...out of great loss & terrible tragedy, a lot of good and positivity can emerge....just look round at the buzz and positivity here...everyonelooking out for each other....

...anyway, time to go & gather the troops...Birr next stop and onwards to Mizen ....."

Brendan Considine.

Brendan and Evelyn's speeches from today - so wonderfully spoken, from the hearts on an emotional day.

This is two families, both with devastating losses, building something hugely positive from their heartbreak.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the @malin2mizen_2021cycle so far, our 24 cyclists, the cyclists who are joining along the way, everyone who came out this morning to welcome them home, to everyone who has donated and sent words of encouragement- we're all so grateful for them all.

Thank you to all of our wonderful sponsors, who without you, none of this would be possible. A special mention to Sherpack Ltd - our main sponsors ❀

To Brendan and the Considine family - you're all incredible, Donal and Dearbhla must be so, so proud.
Just like Cian's, their stories haven't ended......this is why we do, what we do.

What a glorious welcome for our phenomenal (probably utterly nuts) cyclists!

Our 24 hard-core, headcases taking on the full 665km @malin2mizen_2021 challenge and all the support that they had from their starting point in Carrick-on-Shannon this morning had a welcoming reception at the Dept. of Social Protection, where both Donal and Dearbhla Considine worked and had many happy times in ❀

There was tea, coffee, cakes and chats all round, with short and sweet speeches from Brendan and Evelyn. Cooper delighted in all the attention and was less than impressed when everyone started leaving!

We'll be sharing more videos and photos and sharing the speeches for anyone who couldn't be there today, so keep your eyes peeled!

Best of luck to all our cyclists and their amazing support crew who have some lovely, comfy @sherpacklongford vans for the drive!

If you'd like to donate to an incredible cause
