A Show For Shan , Jed And Patricia Donaghs Charity Dog Show At Duleek , Sunday 9Th July 17

Recommended Posts

A Show for Shan , Jed and Patricia Donaghs Charity Dog Show at Duleek , Sunday 9th July 17

 

Duleek is situated in the quiet valley of the Nanny River, in the beautiful County of Meath, and borders on the outskirts of Drogheda, nestling in the shadow of the flowing waters of the River Boyne.

 

This was the venue for last Sundays outstanding Working Dog Charity Show and Race Day in Duleek. It was in this rich Countryside, that a very popular Country Sportsman with a heart of gold had a dream. And this dream soon became a reality, by reaching out a helping hand to Shan, a young lady from Carlow who is fighting a severe illness at the moment.

 

The Canine folk of Ireland took this dream a little further and came out in force last Sunday to support this special cause. I have never seen crowds like it at a dog show on this island before. I have said it before and I will say it again, the generosity of our Country Sports fraternity knows no bounds when it comes to Charity events.

 

From early morning the cars, trailers, huntsmen and their dogs began to arrive, and by noon the cars were parked 4 deep in the field. There was a real carnival atmosphere in the field with the laughter of children playing on the Bouncy Castle, and on site a Country Sports Clothing stand, Catapult Tent, Cahill Leads and Collars, Video stand with the eye in the Sky Drone, Burger and Ice Cream van, and a Nik Nak stand. Something for everyone.

 

The weather was kind, with good spells of sunshine, but got a little cooler in the evening with a spot of rain as we were packing up to go home. Everybody and anybody from the dog show scene North and South of the border and further afield was at this show, and all out to contribute in some small way to this very special cause.

 

I would like to say, I was so proud to see at last a dog show recognising the now famous Plummer Terriers, and giving them a ring and a judge all to themselves. I counted 20 Plummers around the ring on Sunday. What a turnout. Hopefully this will be the norm at the shows in 2018.

 

 

Patricia Donagh, Jeds wife was in charge of the PA system and Master of Cermonies on the day, and did she not do a great job. A real professional that lady was, backed up with a lovely personality, and definitely a big flair for auctioneering. As Tricias beautiful southern brogue rang out over the field, the money kept rolling in. The quality of the items in the auction and in the raffle were unique and were of a very high standard, all donated from various caring individuals in the community.

 

Fiona Devlin went home with a set of Antlers to hang above her bed. Poor Conor will be having nightmares when he wakes up and sees them set of horns looking back at him. John Mc Stay kept betting on a Weather Vane, and after many Euros later between the auction and the raffle, went home a happy camper with the car boot full.

 

There was a very solemn and special moment in the show when Jed Donagh presented a beautiful inscribed plaque to the Welsh Family, in memory of their dear son Brian junior, an avid Country Sportsman, who passed away far to early in his young life. Knowing this lovely family, and also knowing the late Brian Junior, it was hard to hold back the tears at this presentation. Also Jed did not forget his good friend and keen huntsman, Simon Murphy, who passed away suddenly a few years back. Jed looked after Simon to the end of his life, and again on Sunday presented his mother with a beautiful inscribed plague in Simons memory.

 

Time passes so quickly when you are having fun, and very soon it was time for Racing, followed by showing. The race track was the best I have seen this year and in mint condition. Any dog that won on that track deserves his winnings. It was a good length, with a sharp up hill climb at approach to the finishing line.

 

Here are the Plummer Results given to me by the Godfather of the Plummer world Hagan Mc Quaid from Sligo. It was nice meeting up with you again Hagan at the show. You promote and do so much for this breed, and it looks like your hard work has payed off.

And Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank the judges on the day for a job well done.

 

Whippets: Graham Versey

Lurchers : Ste Moran

Terriers : Kevin Maguire

Strong Dogs : William Flynn (Senior and Junior)/

Pets : Theresa Donagh

Ferrets : Ryan Hill, Leanne Mooney

 

The highlight of the day was in the Lurcher ring, when Miss/Missed World appeared walking her Champion Lurcher. All the men were eyeing her up big time, with her flowing ginger red hair, magnificent chiffon flowing dress, and the best pair of hairy legs I have ever seen, orange underpants to die for, and a million tatooes everywhere. What a set up. I was buckled in two with laughter. Maurice Mc Dowell you are a great sport, and always up for a laugh. We all enjoyed the craic, and thank you for bringing a smile to all our faces.

 

There is one young lady who worked tirelessly on the day between the rings along with partner Shane Ennis who helped out with racing. Yes Jennifer Gately, its you I am speaking about. Thank you so much for getting all the results to me. I know later on in the year you and Shane are expecting a happy event, and all the luck in the world for that special event in your life. The racing went like clockwork, and this was down to the skills of the helping hands of Maurice Mc Dowell, Shane Ennis and the man himself on the lure Pat Lee.

 

As a special request, Jed and Patricia Donagh has asked me to thank Aidan Ryan most sincerely for allowing them to use his excellent field and venue for their charity show. Aidan, without your generosity, none of this would have been possible, and of that we are truly thankful.

 

And Finally, Finally, what happens when a Dream comes true. Last Sundays Charity Show was the biggest gathering of Country Sports people I have seen at a show this year. This was all down to two of the most popular, caring and thoughtful people on the Canine scene. Jed and Patricia Donagh your giving hearts know no bounds. Your Charity Show for Shan, for a first time show was a roaring success. And now I am told today by Jed, the Shan fund will be getting £4000 from the proceeds of this very successful Show, and the Boyne Fishermans Rescue will be getting £ 200.

 

It is a thrill to know that these two Charities will benefit from the giving hands of the Canine community and other good hearted sponsors that contributed in any way for this worthy cause. Hopefully this large contribution will help Shan along the way to getting a cure to ease her awful painful days.

 

Again, Jed and Patricia Donagh and your brilliant band of helpers, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a wonderful day in Duleek, and who says Dreams don’t come true. What a beautiful ending for a great cause.

      The North Armagh Dog Show and Race Day , Sunday 10thJune 18.
      As we left Portadown on Sunday morning with the dog chorus in toe, and  howling  out “The Boys from the County Armagh”, we  headed into the beautiful sunshine of a glorious June morning. As we passed the picturesque setting of Oxford Island on the shores of Lough Neagh, very shortly Kinnego Embankment came into view and our venue for the North Armagh Dog Show and Raceday. 
      We arrived in the field at approximately 10.30am, and to be honest, it was very hard to get a parking place at that time of the morning near the rings. Every year this show grows in capacity, but this year has topped them all. By the start of showing there was not a vacant parking place on this vast stretch of show ground and all parked three deep.
       
      As the cars and trailers emptied out on the field, it was quite evident that this was not only a dog show, but also a great family day out. It filled me with pride to see so many local stands displaying their goods to the Canine Community. “Field Sports Apparel “ owned by two of the most active country sportsmen on the field sports scene Graham Fyffe and Ian Fitzgerald were there with lots of Country Sports T shirts, badges and caps, Cahill Collars,Charlene Martin with Dog Food and muzzels, Brian Crothers with his catapults,Ice cream van, Burger and Chip van.
      The North Armagh Show brings people from all parts of Ireland and is now an annual event to look forward to. Along my trip around the rings, I had a little bit of chat, craic and banter with Niall Mc Cann and Stanley Moore with their winning strong dogs, Jonny Wilson and Freddie Hallissey with their Lurchers, Christina and Lexie Maguire with their beautiful Whippets and Mickey Thomas and David Mc Crory with their winning Terriers. All great Country Sports people, and always good for a laugh.
      Two top highlights of the day for me were the Ferrets and the Digging. 
      Matthew Downey and Simon Kelly  provided a superb display of top class entertainment in the Ferret showing and racing ring. Matthew your show is a credit to you, very well run and most enjoyable. Ferret Judge was : Barry Mc Greevy
      Ferret Showing was won by : 
      Rose Mc Coy with Andre
      Ferret Racing was won by : 
      Katelyn Maxwell with Polo.
      Well done to both ladies.
      Now we come to the digging. I cannot find words to describe the entertainment value these digging guys brought to this show. With T shirts flying in the air, Breandans wee green and yellow socks flashing in the summer sunshine, and Harrys muscles flexing everywhere, I must say my heart was thumping too fast for my age. With their women folk dousing them with water and cheering them on in a foreign language, very soon Simon Patterson blew the whistle and the entertainment of the day was over.   And what a half hour that was.
      Here are the Results
      Dig 1 ; Harry Roche and Ken Wilson  5.20
      Dig 2 : Breandan Coleman and Richard Coss 5.80
      Dig 3 : Mark Hanlon and Kieran Stanley  3.55
      And the winners are :

These 3 people put some hard work and determination in on the day at the starting line in getting it all together, but you all achieved your goal 100%.  Great work Kirsty and Co.
      And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. Yes Breandan Coleman, you and your team were 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. 
      Breandan, you are not just a good friend, you are gentleman and an honest and true sportsman.
      We all had a most enjoyable and memorable day at the North Armagh Dog Show and Race Day. Thank you for everything and I am already looking forward to your next show in 2019.

      Fun stalking event . It will be about shot placement, knowing your rifle ballistics and bullet drop and using guidelines of law and permissions when out stalking.
       
      Great for the novice and challenging for the more experienced.
       
      Using sticks fence posts car Bonnet , bipod and free standing. You will be asked to range find and hit kill zone that will be a bit smaller than the general kill zone of a deer .
       
      It will also have a few thing to throw you and make you think of laws and
      Permissions .
       
      Will finish with paper at 300  just for fun and not to encourage 300 yard shots on deer
       
      Deer target
      Gongs , eggs
      And more ...
       
       
      Your need a Range finder . Open license. And a zeroed stalking moderated rifle 
      60 rounds of hunting amo
      License and insurance
