Razldazl Fionn & Oisin…We are going to follow them both…

Fionn and Oisin are a litter of two fabulous young pups by Razldazl Jayfkay out of Dundooan Diva.

Greyhound Testmating

We have asked you to pick one. The Black or the Brindle? Darren McDonald, Jason Thompson, Paul Stuart, George Daily, Bill & Serg Bucilli have all picked one or the other. We also have a lovely picture of GAA legend Michael O’Muircheartaigh.

The two boys are named after legends of Irish Folklore which is detailed below.

We are going to start following them…In the kennels, on the gallop and doing trials. We will follow their ups and downs from running on the track to getting treated on the treatment table.

We hope this interests you and provides an insight into Razldazl.

Please feel free to comment and contribute. We cannot tell you all our secrets, but we will tell you some.

We are going to post video up tomorrow of the two boys taking a run on the gallop at Razldazl kennels so don’t forget to come back and visit our blog to see more.

Sound good?

The Legend of Oisín and Tír na nOg

Tír na nÓg means The Land of the Young and was an enchanted island off the west coast of Ireland where everyone was young and beautiful and had no illness or unhappiness. It was home to the Tuatha de Dannan, the last band of gods and goddesses to rule Ireland.Oisín, the son of Fionn McCumhaill, was a member of the Fianna. One day he was out hunting when he saw a beautiful young woman named Niamh. She was the daughter of the King of Tír na nÓg and she asks Oisín to marry her and to come to her country. So he agrees to this but eventually he dreams of coming home. Niamh agrees that he should visit Ireland but warns him that he can’t set foot on the soil. She gives him a fairy horse on which to make his journey. When he gets back to Ireland, Oisín realises that 300 years have passed and that all his friends and everything he knew is now gone. He decides to go back to Tír na nÓg. On the way back he sees a group of men trying to lift a heavy rock. He bends down to help them but he falls from his horse and immediately turns into an old, blind man. He wanders around Ireland for years and eventually meets St Patrick and tells him his story. He dies without ever getting back to Tír na nÓg.
