Munster player Jack Crowley has become an Ambassador for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind to support the work of the charity changing the lives of those who are vision impaired and the families of children with autism.
The family of the 22-year-old fly-half from Bandon puppy raised a number of pups over the years.
“I am delighted to help the team at Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind. I spent many happy hours visiting the Training Centre when I was a kid and got to see how the pups we had raised at home were then brought through their formal training to become Guide Dogs and Assistance Dogs. The dogs are incredible animals which can really transform someone’s life.”
Jack visited the Centre recently to meet with fellow Ambassador, soccer legend Roy Keane as they both attended a photoshoot for Guide Dog Day which takes place on 27 May.
Tim O’Mahony, Chief Executive Officer of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind said; “We’re thrilled to have Jack on board. It’s great to see his family’s connection to the charity continuing through his role now as an ambassador. We’re looking forward to working with such a young talent who should be an inspiration to many young people to give back and make a difference.”
