ISPCA Chief Inspector Conor Dowling successfully walked the Wicklow Gaol Break Half Marathon in an official time of 2:36:31. Conor was joined by rescue dog 'Rosie' for the final 15 km of the route and afterwards expressed his gratitude to the organisers.
“Dogs wouldn’t normally be allowed on such courses but the organisers gave special permission for Rosie to take part and for that I am very grateful. I adopted Rosie from the ISPCA National Animal Centre and she is an example of the wonderful dogs that we have available for rehoming at all times”.
