On January 6th Tony Killykeen-Doyle passed away, he hadn’t wanted people to know how ill he was. He was the first person to award CCs to Glen of Imaal Terriers in the UK. His Wolfhound knowledge was legendary but he also had a lot of information about the early years of Glens and the IKC as Maureen Holmes bequeathed it to him in her will. Hopefully it will not all be lost now. Obviously condolences to all who knew him.
At Boston Championship Show Glen of Imaal Terriers were judged by Ann Quinn. Best of Breed was awarded to Donvaleset Brier with Romainville Typhoon Best Dog. The two Reserves were Amhard Feeling So Cool & Amhard Freebooter. Best Puppy went to Winnie Wanna Make Music By Jeonty.
