Tullylish Working Terrier Club Dog Show and Race Day Sunday 29thJuly 18

Deep in the heart of the picturesque County Down countryside, with its magnificent scenery, lies the beautiful town land of Tullylish. This picturesque setting sits on the River Bann, and contains the villages of Gilford, Laurencetown, and Bleary.

This was the venue for the Tullylish Working Terrier Club Dog Show and Race day  Sunday 29thJuly 18.   For a day that started raining down in buckets in other parts of Northern Ireland, Tullylish did not have a drop of rain. 

We were blessed with the weather for a change, and the Gods were definately looking down on us. The sun shone all day as the Canine men, women and their little folk arrived in force with their prized Canine crew in tow. From my own observation, over the past couple of years our doggie shows have become real family days out, and Sunday was no different.

This was very evident by the turnout on the day, of how popular this annual event is. There was just a lovely homely atmosphere, good craic, and a few chin whacks with the good folk of the Canine community. This is what our dog shows are about, and this did happen at Tullylish last Sunday. 

This year there were five show rings which was brilliant thinking by the club. It brought in Terrier/Lurcher/Whippet/Bull Cross/ and Strong dog men and women from all parts of the country. Every year this show goes from strength to strength, and this year was no different.

There was a burger and ice cream van on site. Little Riley Mc Cormack and Mairead Fearons two little boys, Thomas and Ruairi and Heidi Mc Alinden had a ball between the burger van and ice cream van. These little people are our huntsmen and women of to morrow, so we need to take care of them at our shows and lead by example. They are four we characters in their own right and lovely children. They just play around all day and give nobody any trouble. Some tired we people on Sunday night.

There was a good turnout of Terriers/Lurchers/Whippets/Bull Cross and Strong Dogs. With the five rings on the go, Tullylish Dog show was certainly buzzing with the sound of barking dogs. 

Time passes so quickly, it was soon time to start on the menu for the day.The coursing started at approx 12.00 noon, followed by the showing and straight racing afterwards.

Here are the Results. Hope I got them all right.

Big Congratulations to all above winners, and also to every one who took part. You are all winners in my eyes.

 And finally the day would not be complete without thanking the Judges on the day. 

Whippets: Margaret Mc Stay 

Lurchers : Ian Davison

Terriers :   Justin Hill

Strong Dogs : Stevie Barriskell

Bull Cross :    Mark Duffy

NI Champion of Champions : Lurchers/Justin Hill

NI Champion of Champions : Terriers/ Paul Mc Alinden

Judging is not an easy job, but you all carried out your remit on the day with  integrity. 

Many thanks to my little helper in the the ring Brooke Rafferty. What would I have done without you. You are a brilliant Sporting young lady and thank you so much for your help.

And Finally, Finally, I always leave the best to last. Yes John Barry and Paul Mc Alinden, you and your back up team are 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. 

John and Paul, you are both two gentlemen, and  honest and true sportsmen. Thank you both, and the Tullylish Working Terrier Club for another top class show this year, and hopefully we can enjoy more of the same again in 2019.

Margaret a family day out are you having a laugh, why don't you tell the  truth about what really

happen at the show, o you cant forgot it for alberts magazine.

well I will tell them, Dessie Mackin stabbed  Billy Craig in the neck & hand

because he beat him in the terrier pups plus he beat him at scarva game fair aswell

and mackin new girlfriend was slabbing to billy at both shows trying to start fights.

When billy left the show to go to hospital mackin sent police after him saying he was drinking and driving

when police stop billy it all came back clear but they took billy to police station and kept him there till 11 oclock with his woman sitting out side it from 3 that afternoon in the car and dogs in trailer, poor woman was didn't know what was happen.

Then police went to Billys house and took his 2 guns because mackin said he was going to shot him wtf

This man Mackin and his girlfriend are a cancer to the dog show and need to be put out, and I hope the Jack Russell

club of GB see this, but most of all Albert needs to do something aswell, another man was told to stay away from this show

because mackin said he was going to stab him to, and your not going to believe this but he said the same thing to a man at a show in England last week in front of him that he was going to stab him when he was in the ring wtf.

So people don't let this man and woman get away with this our maybe at the next show someone will get killed.

So Margaret if you call that a good day for kids to see this, shame on you.

I know I will get put off here now because this site doesn't like the truth but people need to know, thank God

I never went who wants to see this with there kids.

Get them out and bar them from every show in Ireland & England.

Tut tut I see you never put Billys name up for winning terrier pups,

we know who your a scared of

I wish to make it clear to Marydoll - who it would appear to be a man masquerading again in 'women's clothing'  - that I had absolutely nothing to do with this alleged incident or indeed the show where it is alleged to have taken place. So I cannot for the life of me understand  why I should get a mention in his latest tirade. 

Just like him I wasn't at the show and didn't see what happened  AND  unlike him  I don't operate on the basis of hearsay. or make  ill informed comments.

And of course  this could well be viewed as  the 'pot calling the kettle black.'!

Albert don't be coming off with your old daft talk trying to confuse people and justify what happen,

if it had of happen at your game fair you still say nothing about this man, anyone in there right mind

would condemned this behaviour, but no not you it all hear say and ill informed, waken up man

before someone get kill, we all know he part of your team at shanes castle and I think your in enough

trouble at the min with the Antrim council, him and this woman will be the down fall of shows.

As for being a man or woman writing this, it the truth and people should condemn  it not defend it.

I knew you come on here saying something stupid , but you don't like  the truth because it all facts

like the bitch in pups that died at your game fair, but am not on here to talk about that,

the pot calling the kettle black lol think of all the people who run you down, then you reward them,

you need your head look at, so you can go now and get me deleted of here,

but I say ne last thing it up to you to sort this all out and let all the shows come back together again

with this man and woman out of the way

Marydoll why don't you say what you have to say under your own name. Some Facts :

1. NO ONE involved in this alleged incident is part of our 'Game Fair team'

2. I am not in any trouble with Antrim Council

Now now Albert lets stop playing game about who I am ,

This post is not about me our you, but 2 friends of yours not mine

so if you think it ok for someone to get hurt at a show, then I have

nothing more to say to you on this alleged incident

I know two people allegedly involved in the alleged  incident but not the third who I understand has recently come to NI.  I have known both for several years but I am not close friends with either. One has helped on occasions with the racing at the fair, along with several other people who would not be considered 'part of the 'Game Fair team'. The other was helpful in suggesting and facilitating UK judges. 

As I said I was not present at the event, where the alleged incident took place nor had I any connection with the event and like you I didn't see the incident. So i prefer not to speculate.

   As YOU  should know very well,  I do not condone violence or the threats of violence at our events.

As you know these 2 men have being showing for about 30 years and you only know them 7 lol

Am sure they be happy reading this , that your not there friends no more.

As for the one recently came to NI, ask yourself why because she started fights in England at shows.

this is my last comment on this as am sure it will be took down and me put off here but who cares

about a 150 have seen this, so it up to them what they think about it all,

Marydoll I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but it’s nothing to do with Albert or the game fairs. However, what happened on Sunday cannot be condoned by any right minded person. It’s time everybody that runs a show stood up to bullies and cheats....... any kind of behaviour that involves threatening people, head butting people or going for somebody with scissors should be an automatic lifetime ban from any event that’s supposed to be a day out and a bit of craic. Decent people are fed up with this and it seems to me that some can get away with it time and time again. Enough is enough!

      TALLY HO CHARITY DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY IN AID OF SUICIDE AWARENESS, SATURDAY 21st AUGUST 21
      As I draw back the curtains on a wet August Saturday morning, my inner thoughts ran riot with my brain, throwing at me all the meaningful tasks I had to complete to get us   on our way to the Tally Ho Charity Dog Show and Race day in aid of suicide awareness.   
      As we drove off from home with dogs in toe, I had sadness in my heart, knowing this would probably be the last working dog show of 2021. Despite the continuous showers of rain in the morning,families and country sportsmen and women from North and South of the border came out in their droves. By 12 noon the field was full to capacity with every breed of dog you could name. The atmosphere was electric, the craic was good, and Peter Morgan and Liam Toner were in their element keeping everything under raps.
      As I walked around the field, I visited the many stands along the way. Mark and Amanda Delaney were there with everything you would need for your Canine friends as was Anthony Butler from County Mayo with some of his fine leathers. There was also a country sportswear stand, a burger stand,and  a bouncy castle for the little people. 
      The quality of dogs at the show on Sunday was of a very high standard and  a judges nightmare. All our little people were there, contributing in their own little way, and playing around the field with all their little Canine friends. These little boys and girls are our sportsmen and women of tomorrow.
       
      Next on the menu was the Raffle and auction. Again the craic was mighty. Natasha Ahmed conducted the raffle and Peter Morgan the auction. Well there was a rush of excitement around the ring as Natasha called out our numbers and Fred Hallissey provided the entertainment. And some entertainment that was, but Natasha kept him under control.Well done Natasha.    
      Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself, and very soon it was time for the Racing and Showing to start.

      Congratulations to all above winners.
      Country Sports has donated so much to charity down through the years. Billy Harpur an avid sportsman himself and at the moment fighting his own battle with health donated £130,proceeds from Billy raffling one of his prized birds and cage. Some happy camper went home with a lovely prize. Well done Billy.
      And Finally, what can I say about the judges who done a brilliant, but difficult job in the ring.
      Whippets/Angela Flack. Lurchers/Fred Hallissey.Terriers/Sean Donaghy and Rob Roy. Strong Dogs/Matthew Mc Donald and Niall Mc Cann. Pets/Stephanie O Connor.Ladies and Gents handling class/Jonathan Kirwan/Childrens Handling Class/Margaret Mc Stay.
      The Racing went without a hitch, and was run by the expert hands of Chontelle Mc Meekan and Mark Mc Callion. All dogs ran and went home safe with beautiful trophys and a bag of meal. Many thanks Chontelle and Mark.
      And Finally, Finally I always leave the best to last. May I take this opportunity to thank Peter Morgan and Liam Toner for all the hard work and organisation put in to making this first time show in aid of Suicide Awareness an over whelming success. Peter and Liam, I know you worked your knuckles to the bone putting up fences, getting trophys sorted, putting up rings, getting the raffle and auction sorted out, and left nobody out and no stone unturned. 
      Peter all country sports men should be proud of you for what you have done for this charity. I am very conscious you told me all input for the show, you have financed on your own to make this show happen for charity. What a gesture. Your giving hand knows no bounds. Peter will let you all know when the remaining funds come in, the total amount of which you all contributed to, plus a presentation later to the charity.
      Suicide Awareness is a very important charity in our community and does so much to help families through the darkest days of their lives. Suicide wrecks lives and dreams, and it’s the people left behind that suffer most. Suicide has no bounds. It creeps into our homes with terrible consequences like a thief in the night. 
      Peter and Liam thank you so much for a well run Dog Show and Raceday. Peter a special word of thanks for your lovely flowers and Chocolates and all your kindness to John and myself on the day. 
      Hopefully God willing, we will look forward to getting more of the same in 2022. 
      Margaret Mc Stay
