Recommended Posts

Another fine show yesterday men, great weather, great display of terriers, and some real cracking prizes both for show and for raffle. Enjoyed catching up with everyone again, and meeting some new men from over the water was good to get chatting properly and the meal afterwards was 5 star quality.... well done pat and kevin who after the show tallied up the takings and donated them to the Irish Working Terrier Federation with out the blink of an eye... you couldn't meet 2 more genuine terrier men ....well done Pat and Kevin... :thumbs::thumbs:

The Westmeath WTC should be very proud of the event last Sunday, what a great day for working dogs and hunting in general. It was a great to meet like minded characters and exchange ideas about the d

The show was top class, as is always.... a lot of genuine working dog men show up for this show....men you definitely wouldn't see at many other shows, the prizes are great the raffle is great... the

It makes you laugh the dribble some people spout out how does anyone know that the dogs are not worked that won any of the classes some dogs you have too be close too see that they have signs of work

I was coming out of the bar last night just after 11, there was 5 Moate locals having a smoke, they asked me what the occasion was...I told them it was a dog show and they couldnt believe it.... they wondered how over 50 hunting men could gather in the one bar at the one time drinking the bar dry and singing along to old Irish song and not a cross word between any of them.....I said that's cos there too busy finding out about lines to be cross lol...and that's how it went on right into stupid o clock... a lot of rough heads on flights and ferrys today id say...but id bet theyd do it all tomorrow again at the drop of a hat..... Fair play to Darren who had a lot of terriers to choose from 35 in the black dog class, 29 in the black bitch class... 29 white dogs and 23 white bitches... Lakeland class was also popular with 19 dogs and 15 bitches....and the cross breeds had a fair gathering also...

 

LOL...when you start getting flash backs of one liners men come out with, and conversations that were had, and chuckling its good ..... yous sure know how to throw a sesh! :thumbs:

A huge thanks from myself and Kevin to everyone that traveled to the show, to all the people that gave us stuff as prizes with out you the raffle wouldn't have been what it was.

 

Also the judges Mr.Darren Cashmore terriers and Mr.Jed Donagh lurchers who done a super job and were kept very busy all day with the huge amount of dogs that turned out..

 

Also a huge thanks to all the lad's from England, Ireland and Wales that took place in the digging competition 8 great teams...

      South Tyrone Fox Hounds Dog Show and Raceday, Saturday 18th May 24
      Annaghmore Raceway is an up to date and well designed track set in the leafy picturesque Armagh countryside.  As the new summer season of the thrills and spills of our dog shows commence, this venue was the ideal spot for the South Tyrone Foxhounds Dog Show and Race Day last Saturday 18th My 24. 
      From early morning, cars and trailers arrived from North and South of the border, with families and dogs in tow. There was a Burger Bar, a Country Sports Stand, and a goodies stand for the wee people on site   
      As the show progressed, so did the banter and the craic. It was nice to meet up with so many regular show goers, and also to meet some new ones. Our Canine people have hearts of gold, always contributing  and supporting our charities along the way, and this one was no different. What a lovely job this is. 
      Niall O Cloghan and sons were there with their wonderful Terrier Maze. This maze brings so much joy and excitement to every Terrier man in the country, seeing their well breed terriers running the gauntlet from one end of the Maze to the other and winning a prize at the end of it. Niall this Maze is a great invention and long may it continue.
      The weather was glorious with sunshine all day. The show started at approximately 12.00 noon with the racing first.
      Here are the Racing and Showing Results

      Judging is not an easy job, but you were consistent and fair, and very successful with the end product. 
      The racing was carried out to perfection by a young lady of young years Katelyn McKenzie, with the help of her mother Leanne Hawthorne, herself has many years of experience in the Canine world. A job well done ladies.
      Some lovely photographs were taken on the day by Eamon Mc Erlean. You definitely have the knack of photography Eamon, and no doubt these will be up on the site shortly.
      And Finally, Finally for a first time show, well what can I say. They say behind every good man is a good woman and Hanna Heinonen you definitely fit that bill. Hanna Heinonen and Ryan Carville you run this show with impeccable organisation, along with your team Charlotte Eaton, Daniel Jones and other members of the committee. 
      Hanna and Ryan, you pulled out all the stops on the day and produced a first time top class show with a top class venue on the day. Well done and a credit to all involved.
      I am Looking forward to more of the same in 2025.
      This show was in aid of Air Ambulance Northern Ireland, and what a cause. The air ambulance saves so many lives each year and have touched on all our lives in one way or the other. What a deserving Charity.
