Who are we?

Maggie Dwyer (chairperson)

Maggie is one of the co-founders of CCN and coordinates Trap-Neuter-Return operations in the West Cork area.

She works full time, yet manages to find time to trap many ferals for neutering every year. She also helps out with administrative duties and runs online auctions to raise funds for the West Cork area. When she is not on the road or behind the computer, Maggie likes to do some DIY, always supervised by one of the many rescue cats or foster kitties she shares her home with.

Em Peneau (treasurer)

13 03 30 Bud_webEm is one of the co-founders of CCN and coordinates Trap-Neuter-Return operations in East Cork, West Waterford and Cork city.

She also carries out most of the administration for the organisation and organises fundraising activities for her area, as well as supporting other volunteers in their trapping and fundraising duties.  When she gets a chance, she likes to read a book surrounded by her six rescue cats.

Jim Dwyer (co-founder)

Jim Dwyer is the 3rd co-founder of CCN. He assists Maggie in her trapping activities in West Cork and is in charge of looking after the feral cats pre and post-surgery and ensuring that the feral shed and equipment are always kept to the required levels of disinfection.

When he is not busy feeding one of the many felines (rescue cats, feral cats and foster kitties) he and Maggie care for, Jim also runs An Grainneog, a hedgehog  care and rehabilitation organisation.

Paudie Murphy

Pippin MurphyPaudie joined the CCN team after adopting a kitten from the organisation in 2013. He has since been the administrator on our Twitter account, as well as helping out with various fundraising activities and designing various posters and other material.

  3. where is your base.can i just go and spend some time with unwanted cats,or bring them food?

    • Hi Mia,
      We are based in Cork county; however, we do not have a shelter since we are a Trap-Neuter-Return group. The few cats we care for stay with fosters. You’d be welcome to visit them; for that, could you email us please.
      If you would like to volunteer for us, there is a form that can be downloaded for this site. It highlights the many ways one can help.
      Thanks for your interest!

  4. Bobby must be doing some research up close and personal. Come home Bobby!
