Meet the Carberry family from Co. Meath. Peter and Rita, Avril and Alicia and the children - the generations of one family with a shared love of greyhounds. Get to know them a little better now.
“It’s just fantastic… the kids in particular. It’s showing them what it takes to care for an animal and how important that animal is in a family. You know, It brings everyone together because you have a shared love for that animal.
And it’s no different with a greyhound than any other dog or any other pet that you would have, you know, these are part of our family, that’s the way we look at it. I can see that in my own kids, developing that compassion and empathy for caring for something other than yourself is just so important and it’s such a great quality that we’re trying to raise our kids with.
And it’s that shared love that has been passed down from generation to generation of the greyhounds and the sport…. Hopefully our kids will continue that through the generations.”
