There is widespread sadness at the breaking news of the death of Mossie Leane, (66) Scartaglen Village on Sunday.

Mossie’s death will be felt and mourned widely among the ‘doggy’ community in which he was so involved and respected throughout his life as well as by those who knew him.

A morning time visitor to Castleisland, Mossie would be seen regularly at Mollie’s Corner as he awaited a life home to Scart and he wouldn’t be waiting long.

Immediate and Doggy Family

Apart from his family he will be particularly missed by well known greyhound trainer, Mossie O’Connor as they shared some memorable career highlights on coursing fields and tracks at home and further afield.

They have been photographed together with their various charges in many a winning group shot over the years.

May he Rest in Peace.
