  6. Armagh Sporting Dog Charity Show. ( Fiona Devlins Show ) Sunday 13th August 17 As the sweet tones of my Samsung rang out at the break of dawn, it was signaling another new day and another great sporting event on the horizon. With the river Bann rippling in the distance, loads of good country fresh air, we headed down the motorway to Feaghbridge Dog Track. Situated on the outskirts of Coalisland Co Tyrone, and lies along side the shores of Lough Neagh, this was the venue for Fiona Devlins Armagh Sporting Dog Show and Race day Sunday 13th August 17. We arrived at the track around 10.30am, and at that time the field was filling up fast, and by the start of show time the venue was filled to capacity. As this show was for charity, families and trailers arrived in abundance with their loyal Canine friends in tow, all crooning the dog chorus, and full of winning spirit. The weather was good, and although a little cloudy at times, there was no rain in sight. The children had a field day with loads of room for them to play safely, and under the watchful eye of parents and family. It was evident from the start,that this show was going to run like clockwork as Fiona is an expierenced hand in this area, as she has run many very successful shows over the years. The organisation and timing was impeccable, resulting in the show keeping to schedule and starting on time. The Racing started at approximately 12.30 followed by the showing. Here are some Racing Results:Hope I have them all right.

As the day progressed, it was raffle time and then the excitement began. There were some great prizes in this raffle. Of course avid punter John Mc Stay gave his usual performance, holding his hands up to heaven, when his tickets were drawn and walked away with couple of nice prizes. The raffle is the highlight of Johns day at the dog shows and went home one very happy camper. The raffle was followed by an Auction. Some very valuable prizes were auctioned here, and all for a very good cause. Fiona you done a great job as auctioneer. I think you have missed your vocation in life. And Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank the judges on the day, who done a wonderful job. Whippets/ Noel Sherry Lurchers/ Jed Donagh Terriers/ Niall O Cloghan Strong Dogs/ Terence Metcalfe Childrens/Ladies and Gents Handling Classes/ Margaret Mc Stay You all judged with accuracy and integrity, and a job well done. Billy Harpur was there with his camera, clicking away at every opportunity. Billy is very professional and takes some lovely photographs. I also took some with my mobile. These are all up on my time line at the moment. The racing like everything else on show day went like clockwork. Maurice Mc Dowell,you done a great job at the starting line, getting everyone off their marks on time, while Fiona Devlin herself kept tabs on the finishing line. Maurice and Fiona, you made a very valuable contribution to the success of the show racing plan.Great team work by both individuals. And Finally, Finally, the best is always left to last. What can I say that will gather the skills, fuelled spirit and determination together of this young lady Fiona Devlin. Along with your partner Conor Mc Cormick and your brilliant band of helpers, you have pulled together one of the best Sporting Dog shows I have been to this year, with super efficiency. Fiona, you are a true Country Sportswoman, and keep your sport very close to your heart. You have run a top class show, and thank you for a most enjoyable and memorable day out at Feabridge. And the good news, the proceeds from this Charity show going to “The Cancer Fund For Children” was the grand sum of £1300. What an achievement. Remember all good Canine men and women its your money that will help ease the pain in some small way of some of our little people suffering from this terrible disease. Cancer has no mercy on young or old. Fiona you are a woman in a million with a giving heart, and well done for this very worthy cause. Many thanks for the lovely presentation you made to me on the day. I truly appreciate it. I am already looking forward to your next show in 2018. Margaret Mc Stay
  7. Tully Castle Dog Show and Festival Saturday 12th August 17 I never grow tired of the scenic views and history that surrounds this little piece of heaven called Tully Castle. Sitting on Tully Point and tucked away in the County Fermanagh Country side, this was the venue for Tully Castle Festival and Dog Show Saturday 12th August 17. We set out fine and early with no dogs for a change, as my husband John Mc Stay was judging at the show. After meeting up with some canine friends along the way, we had breakfast and then headed on to Enniskillen and Tully Castle. As usual, we were first in the field with the exception of the stand holders. When we arrived, we had our yearly trip up around the Castle. Mindful of these ruins been steeped in history, within those historic walls I could hear in my minds ear the sound of voices in the air, of a house and family that lived there long, long, time ago. From 12noon onwards the crowds began to arrive, and by show time the grounds of the Castle came alive with the sound of barking dogs of all breeds. There was a Bouncy Castle, walking Balls, and many other activities for the children to enjoy. An ice cream and burger van was on site as well as many stands with craft and jewellery, and some very tasty home produced food. We basked all day in the glorious sunshine, while the Churchill band serenaded all at the festival in true summer time style. As the beautiful strains of Danny Boy rang out over the Fermanagh countryside, this beautiful music added to the atmosphere and enjoyment of the Dog Show and Festival. Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself and very soon it was showing time. Here are the Overall showing Results: Congratulations to all the winners in the Childrens Handling Class. You were all winners in my mind. Overall Show Champion Lurcher Michael Quinn with Buster Overall Show Champion Terrier Terence Mc Laughlin with Rusty Overall Show Champion Whippet Janet Duke with Oscar Best Local Dog Stuart Hassard with Lollie Overall Show Champion and Best In Show : Janet Duke with Oscar Reserve Show Champion and Best in Show Michael Quinn with Buster A Big Congratulations to all above Champions and winners, and all who took part on the day, well done. May I take this opportunity to thank the judges on the day. John Mc Stay Whippets/ Lurchers. Gene Gallagher/Terriers for a job well done. Judging is not an easy task, but you carried out your duties firm and fair. As in every year gone past, I must not forget to thank Norma Heap and her PA system, for announcing the names and results of the showing without a hitch. Over the years Norma you have done a wonderful job and the show would not be the same without you. With your friendly voice you keep us all on our toes and many thanks for that. And Finally, I dandered around the rings and took some photographs of all our moments of glory with my mobile. Billy Harpur was there also and added the professional touch to the photography on the day. All these photographs are on my Face Book timeline at the moment. And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. I would like to thank the festival committee Norma Heap/Emily Hall/Nicola Heap/Sue Hogg/Gillian Carroll/Wesley Scott and other names I do not have. It was evident there was great teamwork on the day, and success shone through in abundance at this festival. And now to the king of Tully Castle himself Scott Fallis. You made everybody so welcome, your dog show ran so smoothly and was a credit to your organisational skills, and above all the whole day was most enjoyable. As the long dark days of winter are closing in on us, and the show scene is coming to an end for another year, we will look back with fond memories of our day out at Tully Castle Dog Show. Scott, we really enjoyed the show and the beauty of Tully Castle, and look forward to more of the same in 2018 God willing. Margaret Mc Stay
  8. North Sligo Agriculture Show Gene GallaghersTerrier/Lurcher/Whippet Dog Show and Race Day Saturday 5th August 17 We started out early on Saturday morning, met up with some friends along the way, and headed up the motorway to beautiful Yeats Country and the North Sligo Agriculture Show/Dog Show. Sitting in the lap of the beautiful table mountain of Ben Bulben, lies the village of Grange Co Sligo. This was the venue for North Sligo Agriculture Show, and Gene Gallaghers Lurcher, Terrier, and Whippet Dog Show. The sun shone in abundance, and this was backed up with a wealth of craic, banter, good food, great company, and after the showing good music and song from Gerry Guthrie to dance to. What more could anyone ask for. As we arrived early, we had time to go up through the show and soak up the nice Carnival buzz and all the fun of the fair. There were many feet on the ground and the atmosphere was electric. Every Agricultural animal you could mention was on show. Cows, sheep, horses, various stands, bouncy Castles, and climbers for the children, and many more attractions on offer, to many to mention. Along the way I met up with some good canine friends I had not seen for a couple of years. Catherine and Matt Slevin came all the way from County Wexford, as did Pat Lynch and his son Michael who travelled from Strabane. What great Canine and Country Sports people these people are, enjoying all the fun of the fair in Sligo The venue for the dog show was superb this year, with well spaced out rings, easy access, ringside parking and a good racetrack. The Racing started at approximately 12.30, followed by Showing. Here are the results Racing Under 21 Deirdre Mc Coy with Taylor Over 23” Lurcher Adam Cummins with Connor Under 23” Michelle Rafferty with Gin Bull Cross Kirsty Harpur with Skyler Rough Coat Peter Cummins with Harry Whippets Charlene Rafferty with Zio Pups Michelle Rafferty with Spot Terriers 1/Jed Donagh with Faye 2/Michael Lynch with Randy Showing Results OVERALL CHAMPION WHIPPET Colin Maguire with Pepsi Reserve Sean Dooher with Joe 3rd Charlene Rafferty with Zolo OVERALL CHAMPION LURCHER Jed Donagh with Hammer Reserve Charlene Rafferty with Red 3rd Kirsty Harpur with Regal OVERALL CHAMPION TERRIER Terence Mc Laughlin with Rusty Reserve Pat Maloney with Nipper 3rd Niall O Cloghan with Rex OVERALL CHAMPION PUP Wesley Scott with Midge Reserve Jed Donagh with Sid 3rd Brooke Rafferty with Milly ***Overall Champion and Best in Show went to : ***Colin Maguire with Pepsi *** Reserve Jed Donagh with Hammer 3rd Terence Mc Laughlin with Rusty. A Big Congratulations to Colin, Jed and Terence, and all above very worthy winners, both in Racing and Showing. There was a very poignant moment, when Hugh Mc Gowan stepped forward to present the PJ Mc Gowan memorial Perpetual Cup to Colin Maguire : Best in Show winner. This cup was donated by the Mc Gowan family in memory of their late father, a top Terrier man and kept Terriers all his life. What a lovely accolade. And Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank the judges, Peter Cummins Lurchers/ Terriers Matt Slevin/Whippets Michael Quinn for a job well done. Judging is not an easy job at any time, but you carried out your duties to perfection And Finally, Finally, our very enjoyable day out at Sligo dog show would not of been possible without the hard work and determination of Gene Gallagher and his brilliant team of helpers. It was evident a lot of hard work and sleepless nights went on behind the scenes in the run up to this show. Gene, your dog show was a credit to you and your team, and made Saturday a most enjoyable day for all the good Canine folk North and South of the border. We really enjoyed every moment of it Gene, and look forward to more of the same next year. Margaret Mc Stay

  13. Tullylish Working Terrier Club Sunday 30th July 17 The townland of Tullylish with its beautiful landscapes and farmland sits on the River Bann, and contains the villages of Gilford and Laurencetown. It was amid these rolling green pastures and magnificent scenery that the Tullylish Working Terrier Club held their annual Dog Show and Raceday Sunday 30th July 17 . As we arrived in the field the sun was shinning, but as the day progressed, there was heavy intermittent showers and at one stage thunder and lightening. This did not take away from the quality, and organisation that went in to making this show so successful. As the old saying goes “ The show must go on “ and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club done just that. As the Canine men, women and their little folk arrived in force with their prized Canine crew in tow, it was evident of the popularity of this brilliant show. These people are all used to following their 2nd love of Country Sports, out in the fields in rain and snow in the hunting season, and in the show ring in the summer. Mrs Mc Straw was on site with her catering van, and served up some very tasty food. The breakfast burgers were very appetising, and second helpings was the call all around. There were four well spaced out rings and the quality of the Lurchers/ Terriers/Whippets and Strong Dogs were of a very high standard and good breeding. It was nice to see so many regular show goers there, along with quite a few new ones. Time passes so quickly and very soon it was time to kick the show off with the Simulated racing. Here are some Results. Simulated Racing Overall Winner was: Michael Quinn with Lady Reserve Fiona Devlin with Maverick Here are the Overall Showing Results. Hope I got them right. Puppies Overall Champion Puppy Fiona Devlin with Musty Reserve Jamie Lee Mc Kinistry with Socks Whippets Whippet Dog 1/Tracy Gill with Levi 2/Charlene Rafferty with Zolo 3/Michael Quinn withFinn Whippet Whippet 1/Barry Chambers with Ruby 2/Tracy Gill with Ash 3/Colin Maguire with Pepsi Overall Champion Lurcher Jed Donagh with Chunk Reserve Rose Mc Coy with Lacey Overall Champion Terrier Conor Quinn with Bob Reserve John Heslip with Dave Overall Champion Bull Lurcher Roy Nixon with Chip Reserve James Boyd with Fran Overall Champion Strong Dogs Tom Barry with Scully Reserve Charlene Martin with Rohan Overall Show Champion and Best in Show Conor Quinn with BOB Reserve Jed Donagh with Chunk Northern Ireland Lurcher Champion of Champions James Boyd with Fran Reserve Lisa Beggs with Joker Northern Ireland Terrier Champion of Champions Conor Quinn with BOB Reserve Dessie Mackin with Frankie ( Handled by Hanna Heinonen) Big Congratulations to all the winners, and also to every one who took part.

Some Racing Results Under 21 Joe Leonard with Amber O23 Malachy Mc Fall with Sonic U 23 Michelle Rafferty with Gin Bull Cross Charlene Rafferty with Red Mick The Millar Ali Gamble with Electra Whippet Racing Winner Charlene Rafferty with Zio Finally, the day would not be complete without thanking the Judges on the day. Despite the bad weather you all done a great job. The Judges were : Terriers/Janet Duke, Strong Dogs/ Ryan O Neill, Bull Cross/Kieran Young, Lurchers/Darren Connolly, NI Champion Lurchers/Paul Mc Keown, NI Champion Terrier/Tom Barry. And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. Despite the inclement weather on Sunday, John Barry/Paul Mc Alinden, and your team, you did not falter from the task you all set out to do. Your show was a credit to the club, and very evident a lot of preparation and hard work went on behind the scenes to make this show an enjoyable day for everyone. All events went without a hitch, and some very happy punters went home with another nice trophy for the mantle piece this winter. Many thanks John and Paul and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club for another top class show this year, and hopefully we can enjoy more of the same again in 2018. **It should be noted that all the proceeds of the Raffle on Sunday will be going to Laurencetown Cross Community Group. What a great cause and what an accolade for this club** Margaret Mc Stay
