Recommended Posts

Mickey Quinns Charity Champion of Champions Dog Show and Race Day Sunday 19thAugust 18

Located in the lap of Orchard Country and surrounded by a patchwork of apple orchards and green fields lies the prestigious  Anaghmore Race track.  This was the venue for Mickey Quinns Charity Champion of Champions Dog Show and Race Day in aid of Autism Sunday 19thAugust 2018. 

This show was well supported from North and South of the border. From early morning dogs, trailers, children, and families began to arrive with one thing in mind, to be part of this worthy charity dog show in aid of Autism and go home with a nice trophy for winning The Champion of Champions and qualify for Shanes Castle 2019. The weather was kind to us and kept up well, with just a few spots of rain early in the day.

The show got under way at approx 12.30. 

Here are the Overall Showing Results.

Childrens Handling Class : Judge Margaret Mc Stay

Well done to Brooke Rafferty, the very worthy winner of the childrens handling class. It was nice to see so many children taking part in the showing. Keep up the good work. You are the show organisers and competition winners of tomorrow, and you will keep the sport going long after we all have gone way beyond the rainbow bridge. 

Mickey Quinn had a beautiful shield for the winner Brooke Rafferty, and every single child in the ring also went home with a lovely trophy for taking part. Well done to all.

Here are the results of the Showing  :

Ladies Handling Class

Lisa Beggs with Joker ( Judged by :

A Big Congratulations to all above winners.

There was a very poignant and sad moment at Sundays show, when the partner and brother of the late Declan Jordan, an avid whippet man, donated and presented a Shield to the Champion Whippet winner Fiona Devlin in memory of Declan who passed away as result of a motorbike accident a few months ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with his partner and family at this very sad time in their lives.

Very soon it was raffle time and always guaranteed to generate a flurry of  excitement around the place. Some happy campers going home from there.

And Finally, what this show was all  about. Autism changes the way people communicate and experience the world around them. Every autistic person is different. Some are able to learn, live and work independently but many have learning differences or co-occurring health conditions that require specialist support.

Mickey Quinn from lurgan set out last Sunday, with the support of the good people of the Canine Community to raise funds to help make life a little more comfortable in some small way, by raising funds from the proceeds of his charity dog show for people suffering from Autism. 

And this Mickey done in big measure, along with Tom Barry, Michael Quinn junior, and a brilliant back up team, by raising £1450, and was handed over to the Autism Society on the day in full view of everybody at the show.

Mickey, what an achievement, and what a substantial amount of money to raise from the large turnout at your charity show. Well done Mickey and your backup team. You all done a wonderful job honest and true.

And Finally, A big thank you to the judges on the day.   Your judging was impeccable and carried out with precision and fairness. With so many dogs in each class, a hard days work was carried out by all and a job well done.  

It was nice to see the King of the Castle himself Albertj Titterington at the show and on the judging panel on Sunday. Albert is a true sportsman and supports so many shows North and South of the border during the year.

At this stage Mickey Quinn would like me to thank all the sponsors who contributed to the success of his show, you know who you are. Your sponsorship was so much appreciated.

And Finally, Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank Mickey Quinn, Tom Barry and Michael Quinn junior for a great days enjoyment, and a brilliant show day. I know you and your team have been working tirelessly behind the scenes for weeks now, just to make last Sunday a successful and enjoyable day out for everyone. Without your hard work and dedication none of this would happen. It is also nice to know that Autism Society will benefit from your input and hard graft. A great day and a great show, and I am already looking forward to next years Charity Show and your Race Day.  This was a truly brilliant Championship Dog Show, a great family day out, and a day to remember.  Well done Mickey and team.

Margaret Mc Stay

      JINGLE BELLS --- JINGLE BELLS - JINGLE ALL THE WAY.
      The Mid and East Antrim Christmas Dog Show Sunday 16thDecember 18.
      The festive season had arrived in full swing, and when it came to a little jollification and some me time, the Mid and East Antrim Christmas Dog Show was the place to be  Sunday 16thDecember 18. This first time Christmas Dog Show was a great success from start to finish,  and was a welcome break from the trials and tribulations of the Christmas Razzmatazz.
      Although it was icy cold Christmassy weather, the good men and women of the canine world, came out in strength for a day of  festivities and showing, and they were not disappointed. 
      Denver Mc Meekin was there with some very pipping hot home made Game soup, Game Stew, Sausages, Burgers and Tea. So very tasty and nobody went home hungary.
      As we all know Christmas is a very happy time, but it also can be a very sad and lonesome time for some people. This festive day out can help bring cheer into our lives, and put a smile back on our faces again, if only for a day. 
      Showing commenced at approximately 12.30.
      Here are the Overall Results from the Show
      *Childrens Handling Class
      Lilly Thompson  with Chico
      ***Overall Champion Puppy
      Adam with Rio
       
      ***Overall Champion Whippet 
      Lisa Dumigan with Frankie
       
      ***Overall Champion Lurcher  
      David Mc Crory with Striker
       
       ***Overall Champion Terrier  
       Darren Crawford with Jill
       
       ***Overall Champion and Best in Show  2018***
      Darren Crawford with Jill
      Reserve
      David Mc Crory with Striker
      ***Congratulations to both men and all above winners***
      As usual the raffle brought a flurry of excitement around the ring as punter after punter won some really good prizes. 
      And Finally, many thanks to the judges on the day. 
      Whippets/Mark Mc Callion
      Lurchers/ Breandan Coleman
      Terriers/ John Barry
      Childrens Handling Class - Tracy Gill.
      Judging is not an easy remit at any time, but a job well done by all.
      None of this would be possible without the hard work and organization of Chontelle Mc Meekin and Mark Mc Callion and their back up team.  Hard work and sleepless nights come into the equation here. Your show was a credit to your impeccable organisation and attention to detail, and was a resounding success.  I look forward to more of the same in 2019.
       And Finally, Finally, may I take this opportunity on behalf of John and myself to wish all our friends in the Hunting, Lamping and Canine world in Ireland/ England/ Scotland and Wales and further afield :
      A very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year, and God willing we will meet up with you all again in 2019.
