Tullylish Working Terrier Club Sunday 30th July 17

 

The townland of Tullylish with its beautiful landscapes and farmland sits on the River Bann, and contains the villages of Gilford and Laurencetown. It was amid these rolling green pastures and magnificent scenery that the Tullylish Working Terrier Club held their annual Dog Show and Raceday Sunday 30th July 17 .

 

As we arrived in the field the sun was shinning, but as the day progressed, there was heavy intermittent showers and at one stage thunder and lightening. This did not take away from the quality, and organisation that went in to making this show so successful. As the old saying goes “ The show must go on “ and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club done just that.

 

As the Canine men, women and their little folk arrived in force with their prized Canine crew in tow, it was evident of the popularity of this brilliant show. These people are all used to following their 2nd love of Country Sports, out in the fields in rain and snow in the hunting season, and in the show ring in the summer.

 

Mrs Mc Straw was on site with her catering van, and served up some very tasty food. The breakfast burgers were very appetising, and second helpings was the call all around.

 

There were four well spaced out rings and the quality of the Lurchers/ Terriers/Whippets and Strong Dogs were of a very high standard and good breeding. It was nice to see so many regular show goers there, along with quite a few new ones.

Time passes so quickly and very soon it was time to kick the show off with the Simulated racing. Here are some Results.

Finally, the day would not be complete without thanking the Judges on the day. Despite the bad weather you all done a great job. The Judges were : Terriers/Janet Duke, Strong Dogs/ Ryan O Neill, Bull Cross/Kieran Young, Lurchers/Darren Connolly, NI Champion Lurchers/Paul Mc Keown, NI Champion Terrier/Tom Barry.

 

And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. Despite the inclement weather on Sunday, John Barry/Paul Mc Alinden, and your team, you did not falter from the task you all set out to do. Your show was a credit to the club, and very evident a lot of preparation and hard work went on behind the scenes to make this show an enjoyable day for everyone.

 

All events went without a hitch, and some very happy punters went home with another nice trophy for the mantle piece this winter. Many thanks John and Paul and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club for another top class show this year, and hopefully we can enjoy more of the same again in 2018.

 

**It should be noted that all the proceeds of the Raffle on Sunday will be going to Laurencetown Cross Community Group. What a great cause and what an accolade for this club**
