The Irish Game Fair and Fine Food Festival at Shanes Castle, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 17

 

Shanes Castle in its beautiful picturesque grounds on the Shanes Castle Estate Co Antrim was the venue for this years Irish Game Fair and Fine Food Festival, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 17. And what a memorable weekend that was. The Game Fair and Fine Food Festival was the most comprehensive, biggest and best organised event in Northern Ireland, and was a brilliant window for Irish Country Sports and Country Life North and South of the border and further afield.

 

Whether you are an expierenced Country Sports enthusiast interested in trying something new, or an out of town visitor eager to try your hand at something totally different, the Irish Game Fair provided a vast array of sporting interests for both young and old.

 

Each year this event grows from strength to strength, with a jam packed itinerary of Gun Dog Trials, Lurcher,Terrier, Whippet Showing and Racing, Ferrets, Archery ,Clay Pigeon shooting, Fishing, and many more events too numerous to mention, and this year proved to be a real gem in the heart of our beautiful country.

 

We arrived pretty early at Shanes Castle to get a good parking place, and straight away headed up the fair to get breakfast, and take in some retail therapy. We strolled around at our leisure visiting the many stands along the way, one being the dog rehoming stand which is very close to my heart. Keith Kirkpatrick and Colleen Cunningham do such wonderful work here to rehome these lovely animals, and long may it continue.

 

 

Our next stop was at Stephen Smyths Barbour stand. I love this man. He is always so welcoming and has time for everybody. We moved on to see my good friend Emmett Mc Court and top chef in the Fine Food Marquee . The smell of fine food was definitely flowing in the air here. It was nice to meet up with Emmett, and hijack him again for my now annual photograph. We could not miss visiting Denise and Trevor Cahills canine stand with every type of dog lead you could mention.

 

Along the way we met up with many good canine friends that we have made over the years, out of going and showing our whippets at nearly every show north and south of the border. We are like the bad penny we show up everywhere. Helen Hunter and her lovely family were there to greet us, as was Mc Grath Family and Smith Families from Carlow. We met Neil and Philip Pinkerton, the twins from Belfast. My goodness it is very hard to tell the difference between these two, they are so alike and such nice young fellows. Gregg Murphy travelled up the whole way from Donegal with his lovely family to enjoy and be part of this great sporting weekend.

 

The people I have spoken about, and many more too numerous to mention have become good friends of ours, and we have made all these friends and many more through the Canine world. Although John and myself are getting older, and cannot get in the field or over the ditches as quick as we used to, we still love our Canine world, Country Sports, and our Dog shows and Racedays.

 

Before the racing took place I watched the showing of the Teckel breed. These little wire-haired dachshund are a sporting sausage dog and have proved themselves both in the field and in the show ring as a top quality breed. These small but sporting dachshunds will find a place in every working household.

 

The winners were:

1/ Billy Cauldwell with Biscuit

2/ James Greer with Denzel

Congratulations to the worthy winners, and also to Judge Janet Duke for a job well done.

 

Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself, and all to soon it was time to get back to the Canine Country Sports section, and to one of the highlights of the weekend, on Saturday “The Master Mc Grath Racing Championship”.

 

 

With the lure flyng up the track, the dogs were off and the 2017 Master Mc Grath championship final was on its way.

As the cheers and roars of encouragement rang out around the wee blue hills of Antrim, Nicky Smiths Canine friend Scooby came romping home in full glory and crossed the white line to take this prestigious accolade home to Carlow with her. The thrills and tears of winning and the excitement from the winning family was just a sight not to be missed.

 

And the icing on the cake was when Nicky Smith announced she was donating her cash prize winnings of £250 to The Cancer Charity at the NI Hospice. I can honestly say, there was not a dry eye around the ring when Nicky and her dad Donal told Mr Aj Titterington of their intentions. As Nicky told me, it was never about the money, it was just nice to win after Scooby getting Reserve for 2 years running. What a display of generosity from this young lady. Such a lovely family and a well deserved win. And another little bit of news for us women. Nicky is the first woman to ever win the Master Mc Grath.

 

Reserve Champion in the Master Mc Grath went to one of natures gentlemen, Pat Mc Grath and his winning dog Tucker. Pat, a big congratulations and a well deserved win. Mammy Mc Grath and your lovely family were there to cheer you on. Well done Pat and sure maybe Tucker will be the winner in 2018.

Many thanks for this part of the show. Ferret judging on the day was carried out by Leeroy Mc Cullough. Leeroy you done a wonderful Job and did not even get bit once.

Poor Janet Duke, Reserve 5 Nations winner with her whippet Oscar was speechless , and friend Tracy Gill soon came to the rescue. Congratulations to all winners, and reserve winners both in Terrier and Whippet 5 Nations Championship and well done.

 

And Finally may I take this opportunity to thank the Judges on the day. Lurchers /Terriers, /Whippets, and 5 Nation Judges. Judging is not always an easy job, but you carried out your duties with fairness and integrity.

 

 

I cannot forget the man of the moment, and Canine Director Tom Barry for organising a another great Dog Show and Raceday as part of the Great Game Fairs of Ireland. Tom and your wife Leanne, Morgan and Ethan and your brilliant team of helpers done a first class job. You organised and carried out one of the best Dog Shows and Race days I have ever seen at Shanes Castle. Tom, I enjoyed every moment and long may it continue.

 

 

Major investment by the Great Game Fairs of Ireland team has seen its Fairs at Shanes Castle and Birr Castle developed to a stage where they are unchallenged in the domination of their sector within the Irish Market place. The Game Fair at Shanes Castle has impeccable credentials, and annually attracts large numbers of people to the region, delivering a timely boost to tourism and an opportunity for town and country to come together to celebrate and enjoy the craic, along with some of our finest Country Sports and traditions.

 

 

None of this would be possible without the man at the helm, and his brilliant field team. Yes the "King of the Castle" himself, Albertj Tittering . It is you I am writing about. You are definitely the” King of the Castle,” and in a league of your own. What can I say to describe a kind, thoughtful and generous man, that has given his life to Country sports and all the good causes that goes with it.

 

 

Our lives have been enriched with the enjoyment you give to many families across the country, young and old through your Game Fairs. At the end of the summer season, when the home fires are burning bright, you give us all such happy memories to look back on. You are our Rock in the Country Sports world, and long may you continue.

 

 

Behind every good man is a good woman. And Irene you fit this category with gold medals. What would he do without you. Many thanks Albert, Irene, Co Directors, Edwin Dash, and magazine editor Paul Pringle, and your back up team for a very enjoyable weekend at Shanes Castle, full of joy and excitement, and above all again a great window for Country Sports. And yet again Albert, you produced a brilliant and enjoyable weekend for all of us. Thanks for the memories.

 

***And now for Birr *** Cant wait.

Myself and my pals as well as some other Scottish friends we caught up with in Belfast had a brilliant weekend.

 

The game fair team ladies helped us get accommodation at the last minute and we got a very warm welcome on Saturday morning from some of the game fair team.

 

There was no end of entertainment in the arena and the smaller one were we had a good chat with a few lurcher and terrier lads, I always like to have a chat with the Irish lads.

 

The lurcher area was in the fair which was handy as at some home shows it is outside the show and can be a nuisance, there was even plenty of Guinness close by here too!

 

Plenty of stands, plenty to see and do, food and i even got a few things for the misses!

 

What I liked most was the friendly atmosphere and it was great to see it all in one day and all for only fiver! We even got an invite back to hunt in the winter.

 

Thanks to you all for a good weekend, I wish we had these kind of shows and support at home.

      TALLY HOO CHRISTMAS DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SUNDAY 12th DECEMBER 21
      After weeks of preparation, and with jingle bells ringing in the air, it was time to Tally Hoo and away we go to the City of the famous 7 Towers. Yes Ballee Park,  Ballymena  was the venue  for this years  Tally Hoo Christmas Dog Show and Race Day of 2021.
      As we approached the Ballee playing fields, I think somebody up above was busy getting the weather adjusted for this Show and Race day. All the way down the motorway it was raining and dull, but once we reached the field the rain had stopped and the Christmas atmosphere was on its way in abundance.
       As this was the last show of 2021   the great canine folk and hunting men left the field and their homes to spend a day out at this great Christmas Sporting occasion. By midday the venue was filled to capacity with barking dogs, trailers, and families all taking time out from Christmas shopping and all the trials and tribulations that goes with the festive season.
      Shows are an exciting way to challenge both yourself and your dog, while meeting people in an atmosphere of healthy competition. And certainly there was plenty of competition on the day. 
      While I was browsing around with my now famous camera phone I met up with some lovely Canine folk. Billy Kerry and dad Michael travelled all the way up from the deep south , as did Edel Morrissey and Shane Brett. These guys are all good country sports people, who love to show and race their dogs in the summer and work them in the field in the winter.
      Matt Lee, Joanna Relf Lee and the entire family were there in full force and played a big part in helping Peter Morgan with the running of his show. Matt is so professional in the way he runs things. I know Matt for 25 years around shows and it was so great to hear those dolcet tones ringing out again “ Ladies and Gentlemen” it brought back so many happy memories of Game Fairs and Shows of yesterday. Please bring back those years.
       I am a whippet woman at heart, but was brought up on a farm in County Monaghan amongst a hunting mad family, with some great Lurchers and Terriers at our house over the years. Nothing as good as the big turnout and great mix of Lurchers, Terriers, Whippets and Strong dogs at Sundays show. It was a judges nightmare and some very hard decisions to make.
      Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself, and very soon Santa was on his way with lots and lots of goodies for the children. This was my highlight of the day. We had lots of singing Jingle Bells by little Nancy Truesdale who got out of her sick bed to come to see Santa, and o dear god it was so heart warming to see the smiles on those we faces when Santa arrived. There was also a class for the best dressed dog on the day, and that created so much fun and  interest.

      A big Congratulations to all winners in the Showing and Racing and well done to all.
      As the shades of the winter darkness was falling fast it was quickly Raffle time.  The raffle always generates miles of laughter and excitement. Some great and valuable Christmas prizes, including a Turkey. Lots of big people and some very small people went home very happy campers with armfuls of goodies and trophies.
      And Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank the judges and their ring stewards on the day for a job well done.
      Dogs Fancy Dress Class = Margaret Mc Stay
      Whippets = Kirsty Harpur
      Lurchers =  Gerald Maybin
      Terriers =    Matt Lee
      Strong Dogs = Jamie Taggart
      Judging is not an easy job, but you were consistent and fair, and very successful with the end product.  
      I took some photographs with my mobile, and these photographs are all up now on Face book.
      Finally, Finally, the craic and the banter was good and a brilliant atmosphere all around at this Christmas Show and Raceday.  None of this would have been possible without the main man at the helm, and brilliant organiser Peter Morgan and his back up team. Peter has worked tirelessly and gave up his time to make this show so successful and enjoyable on the day. Peter your show was a credit to you and you made every one so welcome. You went over and above the call of duty here with your Trophies, Rosettes and Prizes. Nothing but praise from everybody that came my way.
      A special word of thanks to Matt Lee and Joanna Relf Lee and her brothers for being so helpful on the day. Your experience and input was invaluable, and of this the Tally Hoo team are extremely grateful. Some sleepless nights, but all well worth it and a credit to Peter Morgan and everybody involved.
      Lets not forget the very lonely homes to day, both North and South of the border with people suffering so much with the loss of their loved ones due to this terrible pandemic. Hopefully 2022 will be better for all of us, and I will look forward to meeting up with you all again in the new year.
      Stay safe, God Bless, and have a lovely Christmas
      Margaret Mc Stay
