B. Shanahan & PJ. Hogan, Guide Dogs

Picture shows Guide Dog owner, Billy Shanahan, Willowmere Drive, Thurles, presenting a cheque for €20,500 to P.J. Hogan, Senior Trainer with Irish Guide Dog’s for the Blind, at a recent function held in the Anner Hotel, Thurles, Co.Tipperary.

The cheque, proceeds from Billy’s various fund raising activities on behalf of Irish Guide Dogs throughout the past year, include the proceeds from sales of Christmas cards, Calendars, Christmas and Easter Hamper raffles and counter top collection boxes.

Billy wishes to thank all those people who supported these activities in any way, and he wishes to express how much these funds are appreciated by all at the Irish Guide Dog training centre, in Cork.

Keeping an eye on proceedings is ‘Tony ‘ a Golden Labrador, who is presently under going training in this year’s training programme, at the Model Farm Road training centre.
