Meet your winner the Galway Nose – Alfie Moon

“Alfie is the sweetest, funniest and most mischievous, fun loving guy ya could meet. Hes my best friend and my world. He makes me laugh every single day with his antics…Cheers me up when I’m down and even licks away my tears when I cry. He breaks my heart with all the mischief he gets up to but I wouldn’t change him for the world. He makes a friend for life in anyone he meets and he knows how to give the look to just melt your heart. He’s a rescue that came from Galway SPCA but he definitely changed my life when he came to me. He loves to cuddle up at night either at the end of my bed or right beside me with all 4 legs up in the air and snoring his head off. He’s my prince my world and would definitely make the most amazing Nose of Tralee.”

Nose of Tralee 2019 Winner


Meet Your Runner Up – Meath Nose – Poppy

“Not much has changed since Pops has become the Meath nose, despite worries she might become a bit of a doggy diva. She’s still a fun loving pup who spends most of her days playing squeaky with her brother Bailey and having cuddles with the family- although if you think she’s been idle you’re barking up the wrong tree! She still loves to bark about telling anyone who will listen about her newfound glory but as per usual she just shows puppy eyes more than her teeth. Most importantly she’s still giving kisses like its going out of fashion and she would probably happily devote all her time to jumping on anyone who wants her love and rewarding them with her own sloppy brand of affection. Poppochino has velvety ears that love to be stroked and when her fluff grows out she’s the softest dog in the park. She’s not perfect- she takes her brother’s food at times, sleeps on the bed and has chewed up more socks than you’ve worn in a lifetime- but she’s everything a dog should be and more: loving, happy-go-licky and a best friend to all! “
