Reflecting on the case, ISPCA Senior Inspector Fiona Conlon commented “This has been a prolonged and frustrating case due to the defendant’s ongoing refusal to comply with instructions, including a court order, to stop keeping animals.
But the ISPCA, Gardai, and Ann Cooke (from Kildare Animal Foundation) have persevered because many animals have suffered at the hands of this woman and she needs to be stopped. Regardless of her age, she has to comply with the law just the same as anyone else. I was asked in court by the defence solicitor whether I thought their client should be living in those conditions, my response was that she had a choice but the animals did not”.
