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.

We are delighted to be working with DSPCA for these services – their facilities are amazing, their staff so professional and caring and they are located approximately 20-minute drive away from the hospital at Crumlin. Remember Cian’s Kennels can also arrange transport for your pet to and from your home to DSPCA and also to and from the hospital for visits.

At the end of a busy day at Old School New School, Cooper couldn't stop yawning long enough for a decent photo, let alone say thank you properly 😂
He made up for that yesterday and made sure lots of snuggles were doled out as OSNS presented Cian's Kennels with a cheque of €2,000!
We also received a donation of €525 from Andrew Reynolds who did the catering at the event. On the day, we raised €501 from sale of merchandise and a further €270 in donations!

Thank you so much to everyone for their massive support and to the OSNS Crew for pulling off a superb day!

Cian's Kennels- bringing pets closer to sick children and their families.

If you've seen our previous post you'll know we're in the final design stages of Phase 1 and we're hoping to publicise our plans very soon 🤞

Now, we're looking to expand the Cian's Kennels team!
In particular we are looking to recruit volunteer drivers to help transport our most precious cargo - the pets of sick children.

We need drivers who would be able to collect the van (stationed in the midlands) and transport pets from their homes across the country and bring them to Dublin.

We are also looking to recruit Dublin based drivers who would be capable of transporting animals from DSPCA to Children's Health Ireland (CHI), formerly Our Lady's Children's Hospital at Crumlin, and back.

All of our drivers will be using our state of the art, fully equipped van, be provided with Cian's Kennels uniforms and most importantly, be given training on Animal Welfare and Transportation.

Due to the insurance policy on the van all drivers must be over 25 years of age and hold a full, clean driving licence.
All volunteers will also need to be Garda Vetted.

If this sounds of interest to you, get in touch! Send an email to info@cianskennels.ie requesting a registration form!

If you'd like to get involved with the amazing work Cian's Kennels does and driving isn't your forte - fear not! We'll always find something to keep you busy with! We are also looking to recruit volunteers to help with Fundraising, Admin, Accounts and Animal Welfare, there's a job for everyone here 😉

P.S. As you can see from these pictures Cooper is less than impressed that we've questioned his driving skills and told him he has to go in the back like the other pets 🙄😂

We held a site meeting on Friday, and we've all got our fingers (and toes) crossed 🤞 that we'll be finalising our plans and be able to share them with you all very soon ❤

A huge amount of hard work, sweat and tears has been poured into planning Phase 1 and we are so excited to see it starting to really come together before our eyes

Pictured here are Evelyn and Enda, Project Manager Eugene Garrihy, builder Gerry Walsh, Site Engineer Ruaidhri Hehir, Architect Stephen Sally, Jean from Derrycourt Cleaning Specialists and our very own Joe Kenny

We're all knuckling down and full steam ahead! 💪

What a great day it was….so much progress… The absolute commitment & determination of this team, (most of whom never knew Cian) to get Phase 1 across the line is nothing short of amazing. Together with the Board of Cian's Kennels & our fab volunteers they are really making this happen….it’s a privilege to be working with them & we are so grateful for their support…

A huge thank you to Dan Magan and Micheal Duggan of Hike to Hope for their huge donation of €5,448!
Earlier on in the year they completed an epic hike from Malin Head to Mizen Head in just 16 days, raising funds and awareness for Vita House, a Roscommon based Counselling Service and donating also to Cian's Kennels as part of the Considine Family Initiative in memory of Donal and Dearbhla Considine, who both sadly passed far too young in recent years.

Dan and Micheal are pictured here with our own Brendan Considine who kept them company on their journey 🇮🇪

This is the face of a dog that thinks every day should be International Dogs Day and we fully agree!

At Cian's Kennels we celebrate the importance of dogs (and cats!) every single day ❤

But for the day that's in it, tell us - what makes your dog the best dog?!*

*All dogs are the best dogs!
