OVENS woman Bridget Murphy has received recognition for her work with retired greyhounds at the 2018 National Greyhound Awards in Kildare.

Ms. Murphy, who regularly promotes pets at Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium, received a Welfare Award from the Irish Greyhound Board.

Bridget established the Friends of Cork Greyhounds group in 2017. This organisation promotes retired greyhounds as pets on race nights at Curraheen Park Greyhound Stadium and in general throughout Cork. 

She has also attended the Cork County Show and Cork Pet Expo with her retired greyhounds and has successfully rehomed greyhounds into homes in Cork and Kerry.

Bridget also took part in the IGB’s ‘Our People, Their Stories’ last year, focusing on the work of volunteers with retired racing greyhounds.

Bridget said ‘It’s great to accept this award on behalf of everyone that has made their greyhounds available for rehoming, as well as those that gave our retired competitors their forever home.’


The clocks have gone forward and the longer evenings have finally arrived which can only mean one thing – the lawn mowers are out. A wealth of knowledge is on hand at Bandon Co-Op’s three stores in Bandon, Enniskeane and Kinsale thanks to each of their in-store experts who are there to share their vast experience
