Clare’s Frankie voted ‘next top madra’


IRELAND’S Next Top Madra hails from East Clare, The Champion can reveal.
Proud owners, and Mountshannon residents, Sarah Haran and Pierce Madden are celebrating the success of their one-year-old dog, Frankie, who took the top prize in the competition organised by RSVP magazine.
The cuddly Cavapoo – a cross between a poodle and a cavalier King Charles spaniel – was voted top dog by RSVP readers from all over Ireland.
“We’re delighted,” Whitegate native Sarah told The Champion.
“I sent in a photo a few months ago and didn’t really think any more about it until we got the call to say that Frankie had won.”
After last year’s first lockdown, the couple decided to take the plunge and get a dog.
“My friend Matthew Harvey has a Cavapoo who had two pups, so we got one,” Sarah explained.
“She has a lovely personality. She has the run of the house. When we’re at work, my sister-in-law, Val Madden, minds her because she’s a dog who likes to be around people all day.”
As the leader of the pack, after seeing off thousands of canine rivals, Frankie is currently enjoying her prize. “It includes a €250 voucher from MaxiZoo and goodie bags,” said Sarah.
“I got a gold T-bar necklace with Frankie’s name on it and an artist from Galway will do her portrait. It’s really nice to get the title, as we didn’t expect it at all.”
