Terrier Men Of Ireland

Recommended Posts

Working terriers ya but no place in a book that anyone could get there hands on yeno

It was called working terriers and terrier men of Ireland not a book about show dogs,what did you expect.Terriers are going to get marked up,its all part of the job they do,some more than others,they vary in there work styles,same as a boxer,cage fighter,ive a springer spanial for rough shooting and after a days shooting she looks like shes been to ground on fox all day,hard bitch in cover but all part of her job.

It's a lazy book, sending out a questionnaire badly limited what some great guys could have offered a book like that.

What was unfortunate about that book was that it was nearly done by a publisher who would have done a much better job IMO.

There was another terrierman here in Eire who had asked the publisher to do a book on the Irish terrier game.

At the very same time Bluck asked me would I be in his book and I mentioned to the other terrierman that there's two Irish books in the pipeline.

He dropped the other publisher and said we'd go with Bluck. In hindsight it was a big mistake.

I agree with Neil and Fatman.

If you could cherry pick about 15 names from all of Blucks books and do thorough in-depth interviews with each with a better editor you'd have a fantastic book. (It might be 500 pages long mind!😁)

Bluck was in it for the money,nothing to do with terriers or the terrier men from Ireland,like every other little venture he started.

youre name is mentioned in it fm-or at least i think it it is-are you any relation of the man that wrote "valley of the squinting windows"--i think it its the best irish fictional novel ever written -because every character in it is a lighting bollix.

My name not mentioned in it,he asked me to go in it but i said no,as for the valley of the squinting windows,lol i have the book and i have been told that the author would have been a far out relation of mine,we both have the same surname.He actually told the truth about everyone in the book and because of that they turned against him,as the saying goes[the truth hurts] lol,i see we had 3 local winners in Clonmel,think there still drinking,lol.
