TALLY HOO CHRISTMAS DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SUNDAY 12th DECEMBER 21

TALLY HOO CHRISTMAS DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SUNDAY 12th DECEMBER 21

After weeks of preparation, and with jingle bells ringing in the air, it was time to Tally Hoo and away we go to the City of the famous 7 Towers. Yes Ballee Park,  Ballymena  was the venue  for this years  Tally Hoo Christmas Dog Show and Race Day of 2021.

As we approached the Ballee playing fields, I think somebody up above was busy getting the weather adjusted for this Show and Race day. All the way down the motorway it was raining and dull, but once we reached the field the rain had stopped and the Christmas atmosphere was on its way in abundance.

 As this was the last show of 2021   the great canine folk and hunting men left the field and their homes to spend a day out at this great Christmas Sporting occasion. By midday the venue was filled to capacity with barking dogs, trailers, and families all taking time out from Christmas shopping and all the trials and tribulations that goes with the festive season.

Shows are an exciting way to challenge both yourself and your dog, while meeting people in an atmosphere of healthy competition. And certainly there was plenty of competition on the day. 

While I was browsing around with my now famous camera phone I met up with some lovely Canine folk. Billy Kerry and dad Michael travelled all the way up from the deep south , as did Edel Morrissey and Shane Brett. These guys are all good country sports people, who love to show and race their dogs in the summer and work them in the field in the winter.

Matt Lee, Joanna Relf Lee and the entire family were there in full force and played a big part in helping Peter Morgan with the running of his show. Matt is so professional in the way he runs things. I know Matt for 25 years around shows and it was so great to hear those dolcet tones ringing out again “ Ladies and Gentlemen” it brought back so many happy memories of Game Fairs and Shows of yesterday. Please bring back those years.

 I am a whippet woman at heart, but was brought up on a farm in County Monaghan amongst a hunting mad family, with some great Lurchers and Terriers at our house over the years. Nothing as good as the big turnout and great mix of Lurchers, Terriers, Whippets and Strong dogs at Sundays show. It was a judges nightmare and some very hard decisions to make.

Time passes so quickly when you are enjoying yourself, and very soon Santa was on his way with lots and lots of goodies for the children. This was my highlight of the day. We had lots of singing Jingle Bells by little Nancy Truesdale who got out of her sick bed to come to see Santa, and o dear god it was so heart warming to see the smiles on those we faces when Santa arrived. There was also a class for the best dressed dog on the day, and that created so much fun and  interest.

A big Congratulations to all winners in the Showing and Racing and well done to all.

As the shades of the winter darkness was falling fast it was quickly Raffle time.  The raffle always generates miles of laughter and excitement. Some great and valuable Christmas prizes, including a Turkey. Lots of big people and some very small people went home very happy campers with armfuls of goodies and trophies.

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

Dogs Fancy Dress Class = Margaret Mc Stay

Whippets = Kirsty Harpur

Lurchers =  Gerald Maybin

Terriers =    Matt Lee

Strong Dogs = Jamie Taggart

Judging is not an easy job, but you were consistent and fair, and very successful with the end product.  

I took some photographs with my mobile, and these photographs are all up now on Face book.

Finally, Finally, the craic and the banter was good and a brilliant atmosphere all around at this Christmas Show and Raceday.  None of this would have been possible without the main man at the helm, and brilliant organiser Peter Morgan and his back up team. Peter has worked tirelessly and gave up his time to make this show so successful and enjoyable on the day. Peter your show was a credit to you and you made every one so welcome. You went over and above the call of duty here with your Trophies, Rosettes and Prizes. Nothing but praise from everybody that came my way.

A special word of thanks to Matt Lee and Joanna Relf Lee and her brothers for being so helpful on the day. Your experience and input was invaluable, and of this the Tally Hoo team are extremely grateful. Some sleepless nights, but all well worth it and a credit to Peter Morgan and everybody involved.

Lets not forget the very lonely homes to day, both North and South of the border with people suffering so much with the loss of their loved ones due to this terrible pandemic. Hopefully 2022 will be better for all of us, and I will look forward to meeting up with you all again in the new year.

Stay safe, God Bless, and have a lovely Christmas

Margaret Mc Stay

      69th Irish Game Fair and Fine Food Festival at Shanes Castle Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th June 22.
      After the long boring days of Covid out of the darkness a bright shinning light shoots over the County Antrim countryside. Yes the news had reached the country sports fraternity that the Irish Game Fair 2022 was back in town. The Irish Game Fair and Fine Food Festival is not only Ireland's premier Game Fair and Country Sports Event, but also one of Ireland's most exciting and action packed 2 days out for the whole family. 
      Shanes Castle, Co Antrim was the magnificent venue for last week ends  activities.  This Castle is steeped in history, sitting on the north-east shores of Lough Neagh, and built in 1345 by a member of the O'Neill dynasty. It was here in the shadow of the historical Green Glens of Antrim, thousands of visitors from north and south of the border and further afield came to view the challenges for the sporting elite, and to partake in the many areas of Country sports.
      The Game Fair provided a vast array of sporting interests, from Clay pigeon Shooting, Gun Dogs, Angling, Fishing,   Fine Foods of all categories, including delicious varieties of local produce, with  the main arena providing nonstop entertainment all day.   
       Despite the inclement weather it was time for some retail therapy. Although the weather was not kind to us, it did not damper the spirits of the Country Sports people as we strolled around at our leisure visiting the many stands, ice cream vans, and spoke to many friends along the way. 
       It was a whole new world to be able to stop and speak to old canine friends I had not seen since 2019 like Concepta O Goan, Helen Hunter and  Stevie Graham. All good friends and great Country Sports people.
      As our legs got weary, and our money all spent, it was time to head back for the Master Mc Grath and Mick The Millar racing competition. For many doggie folk this is the yearly highlight of their canine world at Shanes Castle. 
      Some excitement on the course when Michael Mc Graths dog Calypso pipped the post in the Master Mc Grath final and Adam O Riordans dog  Joey won the Mick the Millar.    
       After a great days excitement at the racing on Saturday, Sunday was a new day for Ferrets, Terrier Maze, Dog Show and 5 Nations.

      All too soon the Game Fair came to a close on Sunday evening. Despite the terrible weather, the books have shown record crowds again this year on both days at Shanes Castle. This Game Fair was run with and under the guidance of people who are passionate about Country Sports.
      And Finally, May I take this opportunity to thank the Judges on the day for a job well done. 
      Lisa Dumigan/ Jim Dalton/Sean Kelly/John Ryan/Glen Doherty/Pauric Mc Kenna  
      Niall O Cloghan with his Terrier Maze and Davy Downey with the Ferretts really brought excitement and laughter to the Game Fair, Stephen Mc Gonagle (Long Netter) with his brilliant arena demo and interviews, that is what we want right now. Brilliant guys and may it continue for many years to come.
      The highlight of my weekend came on Sunday when Kieran Young announced that our good friend of many years Errol Gardiner had been selected for The Collette Gannon Memorial Cup for a lifetime in Country Sports and Country Sportsman of the year. Well done Errol and well deserved.
      Many thanks to the Mc Grath Racing team for a great days racing at Shanes Castle on Saturday. Michael, Jack, Terry, Matthew, Paddy, and Anthony, you set the place a light with your professionalism at every stage in the racing.
      What can I say about Kieran Young our show Director with his many years of experience in the Canine world. Everything went like clockwork Kieran as expected in the Lurcher, Terrier and Whippets rings. Kieran was assisted by his partner Ellie O Connor , Alex and Joanne Young, and their brilliant team of helpers in organising and running the Showing at Shanes Castle so effective and efficiently this year. A lot of hard work went in but it all paid off in the end, and was a credit to you and your team. 
      Deidre Knipe Mc Coy, Billy Harpur, myself, and Jim Masson were there with our cameras and phones, recording every ones moment of glory.
      And Finally, Finally, major investment over the last number of years by the Great Game Fairs of Ireland team has seen its Fair at Shanes Castle developed to a stage where it is unchallenged in the domination of its sector within the Irish Market place. The Game Fair at Shanes Castle has impeccable credentials, and annually attracts more than 25,000 people to the region, delivering a timely boost to tourism and an opportunity for town and country to come together to celebrate and enjoy the craic, along with some of our finest Country Sports and traditions.
       None of this would be possible without the man of the moment and his brilliant team of helpers. Albertj Tittering , it is you I am writing about again this year. You are definitely the” King of the Castle,” and you and your good wife Irene are in a league of your own. What can I say to describe two kind , thoughtful and generous people, that has given their life for the good of Country sports and all the good causes that goes with it. 
      Our lifes have been enriched with the excellent work and enjoyment you give to many families across the country, through your Game Fair. Over the years you have brought a creative marketing flair, vast event organisation, a wealth of experience, and a lifetime's commitment to the promotion and enjoyment of all Countrysports. 
      Albert and Irene you are a shining example in the Country Sports world, it is an honour to be your friend, and long may you continue in the Canine world and the world of Country Sports.
      Thank you for a weekend full of joy and excitement, and above all a great window for Country Sports.

      Co Down Hunt  Dog Show and Raceday, Saturday 18th June 22.
      What a beautiful day we had on Saturday 18thJune at the County Down Hunt Dog Show and Race day. The sun shone all day with a cool mountain of mournes breeze blowing in the background. The crack was good, and the showing and racing was top class.  What more could a Country Sports  enthusiast want. 
      There was a big turnout of Terriers, Lurchers, Whippets, Strong Dogs and Weight pulling. The venue was superb, rings well spaced out, a burger stand on site, and a raffle with some good prizes.
      As the morning progressed to noon, very soon the 4 show rings were filled with Top dogs, and to be honest a judges nightmare.
       As Mrs and Mr Raynard are in the maternity ward at this time of year, it was great to see our field dogs enjoying their summer break showing themselves off in the ring. That is what our summer shows are all about, full of pride, fun and excitement.
      Time passes so quickly, and very soon it was show time. 
      Showing started at approximately 1.00 pm, followed by Racing.
      Here are the Overall Showing Results :

      I cannot forget what a brilliant job the Mc Grath Race team carried out on the day. Everything went like clockwork and without a hitch. Excellent and well done to team Mc Grath.
      Finally,Finally, this top show would not of been possible without this brilliant show organiser. Yes, I would like to thank the coordinator  of this spectacular event Lee Peters and his band of helpers for another top show and race day. It was obvious a lot of thought, organisation, hard work and sleepless nights went into making this event so successful on the day. Thanks Lee for a most enjoyable day, a brilliant venue, and I look forward to more of the same in 2023.
