It’s with a heavy heart we must report the sudden passing of Conor Flanagan of Clouna, Ennistymon, Co. Clare.
Conor was involved in greyhounds all his life and was a regular racegoer at Galway and Limerick. He ably assisted in the training of dogs with his father Tom Flanagan and was responsible for the ‘Flandys’ prefix which carried many successes for the duo.
The pinnacle of Conor’s racing career came with the track record breaking run of his beloved bitch Flandy, trained by his father Tom. She clocked 58.85 for the 1010yd marathon trip around Galway in 2008. The record still stands to this day. He was a great character who will be sorely missed by those that knew him.
We would like to take this opportunity to send on our sincerest condolences to his partner Christina, his beloved children Ryan and Megan, his parents Thomas and Stella, his sister Ann Marie, brother Brian, extended family and many friends.
May He Rest In Peace
