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.

Tomorrow marks a whole month since the opening of the Cian's Kennels Visiting Centre at Children's Health Ireland at Crumlin! ❤️ It's absolutely flown by!

After a busy and emotional day of speeches, rain and photos, Evelyn and I took a moment to sink into these incredibly comfy beanbags, generously sponsored by Michael Mollaghan and all his team at Mollaghans of Longford 👏
It was like sitting on a cloud and I couldn't recommend them more - I think I'll be purchasing for my own house!

At this stage we'd apparently lost the ability to look at the same camera 📸

And yes, I coloured co-ordinated my outfit on purpose 😂❤️

Shhhhhhh 🤫 We've been keeping a secret......

Cian's Kennels are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been chosen as one of the lucky recipients of the #RTEToyShowAppeal with HUGE thanks to , The Late Late Show and The Community Foundation for Ireland 👏

Thank you for helping us achieve our goals - to allow more children like Ella have visits with their precious pets, to allow more children like Cian, a young boy we met on our opening day, to have a doggie at the window brighten up his day and to allow our Cian's dreams to continue being made into a reality 💙 Thank you 💖

Stephen Sally of HBK Architects was our phenomenal architect for our build and was wonderful through all our planning and a number of edits to our drawings. After seeing the project come to life, and having a firsthand experience of the commitment and passion that brought the Visiting Centre to life, they have decided they will be donating all the work completed and we couldn't be more grateful 👏

Thank you will never be enough for the incredible sponsors we are lucky enough to have donating their products, time and skill to help us achieve Cian's dreams ✨️
