Championship Show debut

Championship Show debut

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one who entered our Championship Show debut.  Entries have come from France, Luxembourg, Germany, England, Wales and Scotland and from all four Irish provinces, Leinster, Ulster, Munster and Connaught, totalling 74 in all.  Entries for special classes such as children’s handling and the competition for altered dogs and bitches, will be taken on the day.

We have heard via the grapevine that several spectators from far-flung regions will also be there to support us – thank you to you all.  Remember that the City North Hotel in Co. Meath offers a shuttle service between the hotel and the airport (less than 20 minutes away) and may even oblige you with a service to the show (5 minutes away) and back.  But please liaise with the hotel directly well before the day.  In the case of the airport shuttle they will need your flight number, time of arrival etc.

Long-term weather forecast seems to be favouring us so the steak barbeque after the show looks to be on the cards.  Please let us know, if you can, whether you will be attending in order to facilitate the catering.  Should the weatherman be incorrect, we will be having the lovely roast dinner, so it’s a win-win situation either way.  But please be prepared for any eventuality by dressing accordingly.

Going by previous years’ experience, the show promises to be fun for all including the youngsters, with children’s handling classes in three age categories.  We plan on leaving nobody out of the loop.

We wish you the best of luck on the day and above all a day of fun and joy.

Go raibh maith agat
(1,000 thanks to you)
