      Sporting Whippet Club NI Dog Show and Race Day Sunday 5THAugust 18.
       
      Sitting on the outskirts of the bustling town of Ballymena is Ballee Playing Fields. This superb location with its well maintained lawns was the venue for the 4th Sporting Whippet Club NI Sunday the 5thAugust 18. 
      As the sun broke through the clouds, it was evident another great day was on the cards for the Sporting Whippet Club NI. From 10.30am onwards the good canine folk, both from inside and outside the whippet club began arriving in the field, all kitted out for another good day of racing and showing.  And that was what was delivered on the day. 
      The childrens slipping race was a big attraction on Sunday, and really brought out the umph in these young slippers. Our young sporting girls and boys are our Country Sports people of tomorrow, so let them walk in our footsteps, if only for a little while. And taking those steps, they certainly showed the grown ups how to slip a dog.
      The racing heats started at approximately 12.00pm, followed by the showing, with the finals ran after the showing. 
      Here are the Results from the show.

      As we arrived early, with the dog show being part of the Agriculture Show, we had time for a walk through the stands and soak up the Carnival buzz that was ozzing out across the Sligo Countryside.  The craic and the banter was brilliant, and the atmosphere was electric.  
      Every Agricultural animal you could mention was on show. Cows, sheep, horses, various stands, water bubbles, bouncy Castles, water slides for the children, and many more attractions on offer to many to mention. 
      Time passes so quickly, it was soon time to head back to the dog show on site. Although the crowd was small, there was a good turnout of dogs, especially in the Terrier ring.

      Tullylish Working Terrier Club Dog Show and Race Day Sunday 29thJuly 18
      Deep in the heart of the picturesque County Down countryside, with its magnificent scenery, lies the beautiful town land of Tullylish. This picturesque setting sits on the River Bann, and contains the villages of Gilford, Laurencetown, and Bleary.
      This was the venue for the Tullylish Working Terrier Club Dog Show and Race day  Sunday 29thJuly 18.   For a day that started raining down in buckets in other parts of Northern Ireland, Tullylish did not have a drop of rain. 
      We were blessed with the weather for a change, and the Gods were definately looking down on us. The sun shone all day as the Canine men, women and their little folk arrived in force with their prized Canine crew in tow. From my own observation, over the past couple of years our doggie shows have become real family days out, and Sunday was no different.
      This was very evident by the turnout on the day, of how popular this annual event is. There was just a lovely homely atmosphere, good craic, and a few chin whacks with the good folk of the Canine community. This is what our dog shows are about, and this did happen at Tullylish last Sunday. 
      This year there were five show rings which was brilliant thinking by the club. It brought in Terrier/Lurcher/Whippet/Bull Cross/ and Strong dog men and women from all parts of the country. Every year this show goes from strength to strength, and this year was no different.
      There was a burger and ice cream van on site. Little Riley Mc Cormack and Mairead Fearons two little boys, Thomas and Ruairi and Heidi Mc Alinden had a ball between the burger van and ice cream van. These little people are our huntsmen and women of to morrow, so we need to take care of them at our shows and lead by example. They are four we characters in their own right and lovely children. They just play around all day and give nobody any trouble. Some tired we people on Sunday night.
      There was a good turnout of Terriers/Lurchers/Whippets/Bull Cross and Strong Dogs. With the five rings on the go, Tullylish Dog show was certainly buzzing with the sound of barking dogs. 
      Time passes so quickly, it was soon time to start on the menu for the day.The coursing started at approx 12.00 noon, followed by the showing and straight racing afterwards.
      Here are the Results. Hope I got them all right.

      NI Champion of Champions : Lurchers/Justin Hill
      NI Champion of Champions : Terriers/ Paul Mc Alinden
      Judging is not an easy job, but you all carried out your remit on the day with  integrity. 
      Many thanks to my little helper in the the ring Brooke Rafferty. What would I have done without you. You are a brilliant Sporting young lady and thank you so much for your help.
      And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. Yes John Barry and Paul Mc Alinden, you and your back up team are simply the best. You run your show  with impeccable organisation and skill. It was very evident a lot of preparation went on behind the scenes to make this show a most enjoyable day for everyone. All events went without a hitch, and some very happy people went home with another nice trophy for the mantle piece. 
      John and Paul, you are both two gentlemen, and  honest and true sportsmen. Thank you both, and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club for another top class show this year, and hopefully we can enjoy more of the same again in 2019.
