Sharon Shannon at MADRA Canine Carnival

Brigit's Garden Logo

The majestic surroundings of Brigit’s Garden will provide the venue for our first Canine Carnival event. Dog-owners from far and wide are invited to the Roscahill garden for a celebration of dog ownership. The Celtic themed garden will host this MADRA fundraising event on Sunday September 11 from 1-6pm.

Throughout the day there will be entertainment for children, adults and dogs with a story-telling session in the Roundhouse, the dog detective treasure hunt in the woodland, a traditional music session with Sharon Shannon, and the holistic hound workshops encompassing canine nutrition, dog cookie-making, dog care and dog reiki in the hazel room. There will also be a puppy puppetry show, dog balloon modelling and a poetry reading. View Programme of Events.

Sharon Shannon at MADRA Canine CarnivalThe event will commence with a blessing of the dogs and their owners. Dog owners will also be encouraged to place a commemorative message on a wishing tree in memory of pets that have passed away. The afternoon barbecue at the marquee will be followed by a traditional session with world-famous musician and MADRA Patron Sharon Shannon.

The proceeds from the event will go towards helping MADRA to continue to rescue abandoned, neglected, abused and unwanted dogs. MADRA’s running expenses are in excess of 100,000 per annum and the funds raised from this event will help towards the rising cost of food and veterinary care.

A family ticket for 2 adults and 3 children is priced at €20. Adult admission is €6.50 and admission for children over 4 years of age is €4.50. Concessions are available and all dogs go free. Tickets can be purchased at the MADRA shop in Moycullen, Brigit’s Garden and at veterinary surgeries throughout the city and county.
