Donations to dog charity fall €1m

DONATIONS to well-known charity Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind dropped by €1m or 32pc last year, new figures show.

In total, the charity's overall income dropped by €2m, from €6.2m to €4.2m.

Former Ireland soccer captain Roy Keane has helped increase the Cork-based charity's profile since taking on the role of its ambassador nine years ago.

Five employees were made redundant last year.

Chief executive Padraig Mallon said yesterday: "This is not an easy time for any Irish company and it is certainly not easy for any charity."
