Bailey and Lokie team up for calendar cover

Timmy Lynch - Kanturk Calling

The Blackwater Photographic Society of Mallow recently held a photo-shoot on behalf of My Canine Companion, the charity organisation which supplies children and adults that present with autism, assist dogs.

My Canine Companion is a non-government funded organisation so each family that is lucky enough to receive one of these dogs will in turn help raise the funds needed to have these dogs trained to the highest standards possible.

The photo-shoot was held under the guidance of Sean Murphy, chairman of Blackwater Society, a camera club which meets every Monday evening in the Arches Bar in Mallow. Ten members from the club travelled to Doneraile National Park to meet up with a number of families that were lucky to have dogs awarded to them.

The aim was to create a calendar in order to help one of the families fundraise for their dog.

The photo-shoot was a huge success and the image on the cover of the calendar shows Bailey O'Driscoll of Kanturk with his assist dog, Lokie, for whom the calendar was created and in the calendar itself you will see a number of other families with their assist dogs.

If anyone is interested in purchasing one of these calendars at a cost of €8 you can contact John Mullane of Blackwater Photographic Society on 0871611171.
