Congrats to Courtwood GAA on winning the Laois Intermediate Football final last Saturday!

We're very proud to support this talented team.

Courtwood GAA are the Laois Shopping Centre Intermediate Football champions for the first time since 1987. Rosie & Jim are thrilled to sponsor the team jerseys. Enjoy the celebrations lads!

Thanks to Kathy, Champ's minder for taking these wonderful photos of Champ. He had the company of another puppy, Orbit, in training recently. How cute are they together?!

His training going very well.  He is excellent in the house apart from waking up too early! He is walking very well, stops a bit to check things out but quickly continues on.  His recall is very good.

He is growing into a fine handsome dog and loves his free runs away from the training.

Being from near Stradbally in Co. Laois, Rosie & I know and love the festival that has become Ireland biggest arts and music festival. Electric Picnic is a fantastic fun weekend with top acts from around the world. It sells out very quickly every year. So with that in mind Rosie decided to get in early and purchase two tickets for one lucky winner. We ran a competition on Facebook which Reached over 40,000 people. That's about as many as go to the festival! We chose a random winner from the huge number of entrants and Rebecca Small aka Becky Beag, was our lucky winner.

"Thanks so much again- still can't believe I won them!  I love yer chicken goujons :)) "

Congratulations Becky! We know you will enjoy!

Rosie & Jim sponsored €750 for the The Ronald McDonald House Charities cycling jersey.

They were planning an annual cycle around Blessington Lakes on April 25th but this fundraising event sadly had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. So they have come up with a new plan - for May!

Cycle 60km during the month of May, in your own area and when suits you to help continue to care for our families at this unique time. It costs us €60.00 per night per family, and by registering you will be providing a family a home for the night when they need it the most.  Register online on Giv2Go for €60.00. Receive the bespoke Ronald McDonald cycle jersey. Keep one family close to their seriously sick child for one night. Cycle apart and come together for Ronald McDonald House.

Find out more about this on the RMHC website - https://rmhc.ie/events/charity-cycle4families-2020/

This is a hugely important fundraiser as they continue to raise funds for their New House alongside the New Children’s Hospital.

Check out the fab jerseys with Rosie & Jim logo! We're sure they'll get plenty of use once the restrictions are lifted :)

Some adorable photos of Izzy, who, loves here toys! She, like Champ and Hank, are almost 7 months old now already.

She is very playful, so she can get distracted sometimes, but is still a very diligent little pup and a fast learner.

Hank

The dogs are now back training properly, albeit with some necessary restrictions in place but none impactful on the dogs at all.

Here is Champ out training in Cork with trainer, Cliodhna. He has his Guide Dog harness and training is all going very well.

Izzy is working with trainer Ciara and is going to soon graduate as a Guide Dog.

Hank has been working with trainer, Martin and he should be able to begin training with the family soon.
Here he is with his blue harness which denotes him as a proud Assistance Dog graduate! He has been matched to a family in Cork who’s son has autism and will begin home training with them in the next week or so. Strict measures will be in place for the trainers as they work with the family and PPE equipment will be used.


We're thrilled to see the first of the three dogs graduate on to one of the programmes! Well done Hank!
