What a First!

Glen of Imaal Terriers triumph in many fields but how about this…..Laura Trainor writes:- Niamh (GCH PACH Niamh of Cnoc CD PCD BN RE MXP9 MXPG MJP7 MJPS PAX2 MFP T2BP JE RATM CGCA TKI) earned her RATCH today at Central Bark. This makes her the first Triple Champion Glen earning Championships in three different disciplines! Just awesome and then Jeff Dairiki writes:- both boys hunted as well as they ever have this weekend at The Club at Argus Ranch’s Barn Hunt trials. Both dogs had a 100% Q-rate through the long weekend! That was just enough for Ciarán to earn his RATCHX6 and Quinn his RATCHX5 in the final trial of the weekend. (Both dogs notched up Crazy 8 titles as well — Ciarán platinum, and Quinn gold.) What a weekend for the breed in other disciplines.

Porvoo All Breed Show in Finland saw Rosears Master of the House BOB with Gleann Una Noonan Best Bitch & Best Veteran. The N.I. Terrier Association Group Championship Show was a Best of Breed for Abberann Cosmic Cowboy and kennelmate Daulton’s Midnight Sky of Galore Best Opposite Sex. London & Home Counties Terrier was where Wickholm Breaking Dawn got the nod over Jeonty Lola May at Wickholm and at Lochabers Jeonty Dreams A Dream with Karensbrae took 5th, and money, in a huge Open Bitch Stakes (not bad at 13 months old) and then won Good Citizens with over 20 in the class…….oh yes and £10. In The States at Umpqua KC Keadeen Second Star To The Right was BOB and she repeated it at South Oregon Kennel Club. The exhibiting biggie of the weekend was Kilkenny’s Across the Universe at Setanta winning the Terrier Group both days in Kenosha Wisconsin and Reserve Best in Show on Saturday.

You all do us so proud.

 

 

Starting September with Group placings!

Glen of Imaal Terriers are certainly off the blocks for September with Group placing in Finland and America. Marfidal Pleasant Surprise was BOB & Gp4 at the Vetcare Show with Marfidal Cosmopolitan Diva Best Bitch.

Tipperary That Girl was BOB at Beaver County KC, Fort Steuben KC & St Clairesville Ohio KC and picked up OHG4 at the last two.. Longview-Kelso KC saw Keadeen’s Sir Emmet Mingus Glas Take the top spot in the breed on both days and then G2 both days-Keadeen’s Second Star To The Right was Best Opposite. Kilkenny’s Irish American Classic at Castlerock was at a cluster in Kentucky and picked up BOB at all of them.

Canada had Abberann Derbla Best of Breed at Cornwall District KC and Gleann Holy Hannah was at the Atlantic Terrier Association with a very nice prize for Best of Breed, a Glen of Imaal cushion. A two day show in Bremen (Germany) saw McJake’s Angels Son Djuke take BOB on the first day, Spirit of Ireland Batida de Coco Best Bitch & Best Veteran. Day 2 was again Batida winning Best Opposite but this time Best of Breed went to Madra Athas Conner Chead Ghra.

Nice things being heard about the Glen Association weekend. 21 Glens were there so an excellent opportunity to meet the breed
