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.

What a crazy few days we've had!

Cooper couldn't believe his own ears when we starting talking numbers!

Since launching Phase 1 last Monday we've had 2 huge news reports courtesy of RTÉ News and Virgin Media Ireland

12 radio interviews thanks to Shannonside FM RTÉ 2fm Today FM Spirit Radio East Coast Radio Newstalk Tipp FM C103 Cork Beat 102 103 Highland Radio WLR FM and Midlands 103

We've had 10 print articles - Irish Examiner The Irish Times Irish Daily Mail RSVP Magazine Longford Leader Sherpack Ltd The Irish Sun RollerCoaster.ie Irish Farmers Journal and last night LadBible Ireland shared our story on their Instagram!

We've had more than 40 of you get in touch this week looking to volunteer and this week alone has seen just under €8,000 come in to our iDonate page www.idonate.ie/5490_cian-s-kennels-clg.html
along with bank transfers and cheques!

It's been overwhelming and if I've missed somebody in this post, I'm so sorry, send me a DM and I'll edit it!

We took a much needed breather and now we're back at it!
Heavy machinery arrived on site bright and early this morning to begin groundworks on Phase 1 (sorry if we disturbed you Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland 😂)

In huge news, this week we've also started helping our first family kennel their pet in DSPCA while their child is in hospital ❤

We've been incredibly busy and we wouldn't have it any other way but we just wanted to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you for your support, none of this would be possible without you all.

A special word of thanks also goes to Ciaran Mullooly, who was a phenomenal help and source of wisdom and guidance in relation to our press release and launch day - thank you so much Ciaran, we really appreciate you!

Phenomenal work by you all, and such a fantastic legacy for Cian to leave behind, and be remembered by ❤️

Great work already looking better outside St John's ward. Poor Cooper, he's wore out.

It’s still a little surreal!! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to getting us to this day!

Great work well done

Unbelievable work Evelyn Quinn you were always a lady to make things happen.

I don't know where you get the energy Evelyn. What a week that was. Delighted to play a small part in spreading the good news and brilliant to hear the new service is up and running. The whole country has now heard about Cian's Kennels. Keep up the good work. C

Such generosity in the part of his daily while grieving for their own child is a lovely legacy to Cian. Great to see the project coming to fruition and to see a positive story from Longford.

Congratulations Enda, Evelyn, Shane & Cooper and all the team at Cian's Kennels. Such a fantastic tribute & legacy to Cian. 🙏

Congratulations to all concerned - how fabulous to see this on tv this evening - Sean Considine Brendan Considine

I had the honor to meet you guys and Cooper today 🙂 in the petrol station on M4 A massive congratulation for your generosity and everything you have done guys@ Snoop the westie

Congratulations to Evelyn, Enda and Shane and all the team at Cians Kennels. It's great to see all your hard work come to fruition.

Congratulations to this wonderful family what a wonderful way to help other families goin through this journey,a very proud day for them .

Today's launch of Cian's Kennels is a credit to you all espicially Cian and Cooper. Cian is so proud of you all esp Shane for cutting the ribbon. In Cian's memory you will now bring the gift of love and joy of reuniting a sick child with their beloved pet and make their stay in hospital that little bit easier. More importantly, by having their pet close it will give them them strength, encouragement and incentive to keep going and get home asap where a child rightfully belongs with their family and pet. They say compassion is the purest form of love because it neither expects nor demands anything in return. That's what today is all about in your beautiful boy's memory. Cian will live on always and forever. Well done..xxx

Brilliant to see and well done to all on getting to this point....a fitting tribute to Cian

Well done great idea

this needs to be for kids of all ages xx

Today was a big day and that's the understatement of the century!

Today was hectic, heart warming and emotional and adhering to current guidelines we all wore masks, even though we were outside and we social distanced. This meant we missed the supportive pat on the back, the squeeze of the shoulder, human connection...

So when the staff of Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland came out smiling and asking who wanted a hug they got some funny looks - before they presented us each with a #barróg ❤❤ (Barróg means hug in Irish 🇮🇪)

Thank you to all the staff of the Ronald McDonald House for your support from day 1 and your well timed hugs! Cooper's hugs are well meant but slightly intense - his Barróg has definitely seen better days 😂🐰
