Great Publicity For Ggfofi Mick The Miller Race


Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

Myself and a few other lads are heading across for the weekend. Looking forward to it.

Always delighted to see fellow sportsmen 'from across the pond'. Pop into the Irish Countrysports and Country Life stand to speak to our editor Paul Pringle for a welcome pack.

 

Albert

Thanks, a few boys from Scotland meeting us as well.

 

On our way Thursday night

Glad the ladies could get you sorted out with accommodation - quite a few travelling from the UK and of course from all over Ireland. Don't be put off by the few disgruntled people on this forum. Most Irish terrier, lurcher and whippet owners are most sporting. Meanwhile you can download a free programme to read on the ferry, http://irishgamefair.com/pdf/GF_Programme.pdf

On the ferry and on our way! Good few of us and some other lads from southern England as well, looking forward to it!

 

Anyone recommend somewhere to go on Saturday night?

would you not invite them back to the nuthouse with yous.

I think the best way to promote my chosen sport is to keep myself to myself, and go about my sport without drawing unwanted attention to myself. Therefore you will never see me in any magazine, never

You lads should come to England and see how much support lurchers and terriers get at shows.....not a squint of what you guys get

ONCE AGAIN a SILLY and totally INACCURATE POST by SKIP. LIKE ALL OF HIS ALLEGATIONS TOTALLY FALSE.

 

The Scottish Terrier Display team who were doing demos in the two arenas and two of whom judged as one of three judges in each of the Five Nations Terrier & Whippet Championships were invited to the event by the GGF of I team. As such we looked after their accommodation and they were accommodated in a Guest House in Crumlin.

      THE IRISH ASSOCIATION OF WORKING DOGS  SHOW AND RACE DAY, IN CONJUNCTION WITH KILTROUGH  LURCHERS WORKING DOG CLUB SUNDAY15th MAY 22
      Ballinabrannagh is a small village in County Carlow, and makes up part of the beautiful rural scenic coastline of the south of Ireland.  This was the venue for the Irish Association of Working Dogs in conjunction with Kiltrough Lurchers  Working Dog Club Show and Race day Sunday 15th May 22. 
      The good lord was good to us on the day as the sun shone for most of the day getting a little cooler in the evening. Canine people from North and South of the border with their families, dogs and trailers came out in force to support this great charity Dog Show and Race day. 
      As the work in the field is over for this season, there was a very nice friendly crowd at the show. Some old faces and some new ones backed up with an abundance of craic and banter. Just an all round lovely relaxing family day out for all the Canine men and women after the pandemic.
      Niall O Cloghan was there with his Terrier Maze along with his two young sons to help. This is a Country Sport on its own and is really taking off at all the dog shows up and down the Country. The craic and the banter this Terrier Maze generated was mighty. It was one of my favourite parts of the show. If you need Niall for your show pm him on his facebook page. You will not be disappointed.
      Again the Ferretts did not disappoint both in showing and racing. It amazes me the way the young folk can handle these we animals. I am a coward around them, but these children and adults put me to shame and all professionals at their game. The roars of laughter that echoed around the field when these little creatures were racing would do your heart good, was just brilliant. Well done to all involved.
      On my travels around the field I spoke to some great Country Sports people. Along the way I met up with Jim Mulcahey, husband of AnneMarie Mulcahey our brilliant photographer in Country Sports. Jim has a wealth of knowledge, a great conversationist, and also a brilliant photographer.
      Jenny O Meara was there with her winning Canine friends. It is always so nice to speak to Jenny, she is such a genuine nice happy person with a beautiful deep southern accent and loves her dogs. As I moved along I bumped into Rochelle Duffy and her beautiful little girl Georgia. The last time I spoke to Rochelle was when she was pregnant with Georgia, which I think was 5 or 6 years ago. It was great to chat about all the water that has run under the bridge since those years and also to meet Miss   Geogia. And just before the showing started Trich Donagh and myself walked up the field spilling out all our personal secrets to each other. This lady is one of the nicest caring people on this planet. Trich, you should have been a councillor, you have a great way with words.
      Heading back to base I could hear the dulcet tones of our young lady on the PA System. What can I say about the brilliant job Jade Dunphy did on Sunday. Jade you done a wonderful job keeping everyone on their toes. We would have been lost without you.
      Stephanie O Connor and the racing team took everything in their stride and pulled off a great days racing. Well done Stephanie and team

      *Congratulations to all the above winners and well done.
      And Finally, on behalf of the Club I would like to thank the Judges on the day for a job well done :
      Lurcher Judge  / John Ryan 
      Terrier  Judge  /  Ciaran Fullen.
      Whippet Judge / Shane Ennis 
      Hound Judge   /Derek O' Connor 
      Strong Dog Judge / Ryan O' Neill
      Hound Judge  / Dennis Murphy
      Thank you so much for the beautiful presentatation you made to me. The plaque is just beautiful and was such a surprise, so unexpected and from the bottom of my heart so much appreciated.
      And Finally, Finally, all of this would not be possible without the 2 main men at the helm, Jed Donagh and Dermot Lawless and their  brilliant back up team. It was evident on the day that a lot of organisational skills and sleepless nights went into planning this brilliant event.  Your show was a credit to the club and you made every one so welcome. You went over and above the call of duty here with your Trophies, Rosettes, Meal and Raffle Prizes.  
      Had a great day at this show and we are already looking forward to more of the same shortly.
