We are very happy to support Micky's event for a very worthwhile charity  Many families including our own  work with children who have autism. 

 We are providing quality antique trophies  to be kept by the owners of the three 2018 Show Champion of Champions and in association with Janet Duke coats for the racing winners.  We are also sponsoring dog food prizes in association with Feedwell Dog Food. 

This should be a superb 'end of season' event which deserves your support.

Thanks to those who PMed me to admire the trophies we have presented to be retained by the winners of the three  2018 Champion of Champions.  We thought we would try to acquire quality trophies for what should be a really prestigious event.   The Terrier Trophy  is a heavyweight vintage bronze trophy; the Lurcher Trophy was previously presented to the winner of a 2004 race at Hall Green  and is a real stunning trophy and the whippet trophy is a smart head mounted on marble.

I hope Micky's hard work in getting sponsorship for this event pays off with ALL proceeds going to a worthwhile NI charity.

Good prizes with competition for REAL END of SEASON TITLES - to be the terrier , lurcher and whippet  2018 CHAMPION of CHAMPIONS  by beating other dogs that have been Champion or Res Champion  at Shows throughout Ireland - come and try to get recognition as the  2018 'Best of the Best'. Great trophies for the champions.

AND a  chance to qualify for the REAL 2019 MASTER McGRATH   and MICK the MILLER Championships  to be staged in the prestigious setting of the GAME FAIRS  with classy trophies and great prize funds.   The 2018 races at Shanes had two GREAT CHAMPIONS  and TWO GREAT RUNNERS UP.

There was a great atmosphere at this charity show for Autism Initiatives NI.  I was delighted to meet Mel Patterson( Brother of well known spaniel handler Aidan)  whose son is one of the young adults who will benefit from the show.  Also to find that one of my fellow judges was non other than Jamesie Toal at one stage a fine retriever handler but also a long time terrier owner and fancier. Margaret will be doing a full report on the event but a few photos that capture the happy family atmosphere. Best wishes were sent to John McStay who is just out of hospital.

      NEW RULES FOR QUALIFYING FOR THE FIVE NATIONS TERRIER, WHIPPET & LURCHER CHAMPIONSHIPS AT THE GREAT GAME FAIRS OF IRELAND 2020.   
      In future rather than shows in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales having to apply for qualifying status in advance and those competitors wishing to qualify sometimes having to travel considerable distances to try to qualify, we have decided that anyone whose dog is awarded the Championship or Res Championship at any show in the UK or Ireland, can claim a qualification for the Five Nations. 
      1.They can do this by the owner of the dog  emailing Tom or Albert to claim their qualification to irishcountrylifestyle@btinternet.com.
      2. The owner of the dog claiming the qualification must give details of the name and date of the event, the body organising the show,  the name of the dog and the owners name and contacts.
      3.The claim must be made within 21 days of the event where the dog(s) won. 
      4. Only the Champion and Reserve Champion qualify – dogs beaten by these dogs do not ‘step up’ on the basis that the winners are already qualified. 
      5. The date of the  implementation of these new rules is from the 30th June 2019.
      6. We have had a system in place for some years whereby anyone actually present at the final can make an objection to the winner or reserve in the Five Nations or indeed any winner at the fair by making a formal objection and putting down a deposit of €50/£50. This will be returned if the objection is upheld. If the challenge fails the money will be donated to charity.  This will be the ONLY system of dispute that will be considered and no debate will be entered into over the results AFTER the event. This is the system used by the other sports and there are no unseemly disputes after these other competitions.
