Greyhound Champions

Photographer Padraig Kennelly talks about the role that coursing (hare chasing) and greyhound racing played in rural sporting life during the winter months in County Kerry, Ireland, from the 1950s to the 70s. He remembers the Kingdom Cup and Mick Murphy, one of Kerry coursing's most experienced slippers.
