MAN O WAR DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SUNDAY 14th AUGUST 22


Recommended Posts

 

MAN O WAR DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SUNDAY 14thAUGUST 22

The town land of Man O War sits outside Keady Co Armagh and lies directly opposite the beautiful Clay  Lake. With a backdrop of spectacular scenery,this was the perfect venue for the Man O War  annual dog show and Race Day Sunday 14th August 22. 

The show was run with impeccable organisation, with some class rosettes and trophies . There was a big turnout of loyal Canine folk from north and south of the border and this was twinned with the show rings full of  Lurchers, Terriers, Whippets , Strong Dogs and Bullies.

One of the highlights of the show for me was Niall O Cloghans Terrier Maze. The craic and the banter around the Terrier Maze was unbelievable.  This event has become very popular and a real winner at our shows up and down the country and proving a big attraction for our terrier men. Keep up the good work team O Cloghan.

There was a burger van, stalls and toilet facilities on site. The raffle generated a lot of excitement as usual with many happy punters going home with armfuls of  lovely prizes.  Morris Mc Dowell handed his raffle tickets out to the children around the ring, and it was heart warming to see the smiles on their wee faces when their number was  called. Thank you for the wine Morris , also  given  with your winning ticket. A true gentleman with a giving heart and always willing to help out at our shows no matter what the task is. 

Well done to all the children who took part in the childrens handling class. You were all winners on the day and you all made your parents very proud.  These little people are our show organisers of tomorrow, so treat them like gold dust, as we need them badly to carry on after us.  

As the temperature lowered with a cool breeze, very soon it was race time. 

The Racing commenced at approximately 12.30 noon.

A Big Congratulations to all above  winners.

And Finally, The task of judging is not easy at anytime, but you all carried out your remit on the day with efficency and professionalism.   

The Judges were:

Whippets : Brooke Rafferty 

Lurchers: Michelle Rafferty

Bull X : Stewart Graham

Terriers : Gerald Mc Keown

Strong Dogs/Bullies : Matthew Mc Donald/Niall Mc Cann

The racing went like clockwork and without a hitch.   Well done to all involved.

 And Finally, Finally, what can I say about this young country sports women, Charlene, her daughters Brooke and Chelsea and back up team that will praise them enough for the magnificent dog show and race day  produced on Sunday. It makes me so proud to be a woman in a mans world. Charlene, your show was well organised, and evident that a lot of hard work was carried out behind the scenes to make this show such a success and most enjoyable day for everybody.  

And the final word must go to Brooke Rafferty, a young lady deeply involved with her horses, show jumping, dog shows and work in the field in the winter. For a lady of her young years, Brooke has crossed some ground in her young life. With the help of her sister Chelsea, Judging the Whippets on Sunday was a further step in her country sports career and long may it continue.  Well done Brooke and Chelsea, one proud Mama.

Charlene, we all enjoyed your show and look forward to more of the same in 2023.

      TALLY HO CHRISTMAS DOG SHOW AND RACEDAY SATURDAY 10th DECEMBER 22
      With Santas sleigh bells ringing over the hills of County Antrim, the day had arrived for to shout  Tally Ho and away we go to the City of the Famous 7 Towers and the venue for the Tally Ho Christmas Dog Show and Race Day 
      Although it was very cold on the day, this show was not lacking in Christmas cheer. As this was the last show of 2022 the great canine folk came out in their glory. Hunting men and women left the field and their homes to spend a day out at this great Christmas Sporting occasion.  
      Our shows summer and winter is an exciting way to challenge both yourself and your dog, while meeting people in a world of healthy competition.  
      The Christmas Dog Show is always a very welcome break from the busy schedules of Christmas shopping and all the festive razzmatazz that goes with it.
      Christmas can also be a very sad and lonesome time, full of memories of yesteryear. This annual doggie day out before Christmas lifts this mantle, brings cheer in abundance, and helps us to leave our cares behind and learn to smile again if only for a day and that brings rewards in itself.
      What a big Jingle Bell surprise. Santa and his Elf stopped off at the Tally Ho show to pay a visit on his way to the North Pole with lots and lots of goodies for the children. This was the highlight of the day. It was heart warming to hear the children singing Jingle Bells, and to see the happy smiles on those we faces. There was also a fancy dress 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 Finally, may I take this opportunity to thank the judges on the day for a job well done.

      Judging is not an easy job, but you were consistent and fair, and very successful with the end product. 
      ***Santa Claus /JP O Hagan
      ***Elf/ Katelyn Mc Kenzie.
      A big thank you to Matt Lee/Joanna Relf Lee /Matthew Lee for being so helpful with the racing on the day. Your experience and input was invaluable, and of this the Tally Ho team are extremely grateful.
      Finally, Finally, the craic and the banter around the rings was mighty and a brilliant atmosphere full of Christmas cheer.  
      None of this would have been possible without the main man at the helm, and brilliant organiser Peter Morgan and helpers Conor Creagh and Caitlin Hughes. Peter put this show together within 6 weeks and worked tirelessly and gave up his time to make this day so successful and enjoyable   despite the bad weather. 
      Peter your show was a credit to you and you made every one so welcome. You have a heart of gold and went over and above the call of duty with your Trophies, Rosettes and Prizes. I have heard nothing but praise from everybody that came my way. Some sleepless nights, but all well worth it and again a  credit to you Peter Morgan and everybody involved.
      Lets not forget the very lonely homes this Christmas North and South of the border after the wrath of the dreadful Covid and presently Strep A. Homes all over this beautiful Island of ours are suffering so much with the loss of their loved ones, and it is my hope and prayers for 2023 they will all get the strength to carry on as best they can.   
      Hopefully 2023 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 all my Sporting friends, God Bless, and have a lovely Christmas and Prosperous New Year.
