Glen of Imaal Terrier people are still enthusiastically out and about. In Finland at Porvoo Best of Breed was awarded to Rosears Finavia with BOS to Rosears Humpty Dumpty and at the Helsinki Group Show Rosears Heads or tails was Best of Breed. At the Irish Sporting Glen event an Overall Champion is awarded and this went to Bailielands Leanbh Orga who picked up Best Bitch, Reserve Best In Show and other points along the way from the various classes. Best Dog was Ballyclare Luke
In America Laura and Ch Niamh of Cnoc go from strength to strength in the agility world. The AKC agility titles are earned by qualifying at events and Niamh, after a week of agility, has added three double Qs (qualifying 6 times out of 6).
In the UK Darlington Championship Show saw a very unusual event, a Glen was shortlisted in the adult Terrier Group. The breed was shortlisted in the Puppy group there only last year but can anybody remember when the last adult group was? Breed judge, Jeff Luscott, awarded Best of Breed to Johnny Be Good at Romainville with the words “what a performance!” and obviously Group Judge Andrew Hunt felt the same way. The Bitch CC at Darlington went to Jeonty MeMe Fern and Best Puppy was Amhard High Flyer.
Huge Congratulations to everybody!!!!!!
The “Swedish Bash” in Eskilstuna had wonderful weather and a fabulous atmosphere is reported. Best of Breed Glen of Imaal Terrier, under judge John Hartigan, was Abberann Fagan with Pearytail Artless Tess Best Bitch. Fagan then went on to take Reserve Best In Show-or Best In Show 2 as it is known in Scandinavia-so an excellent result.
The Irish Sporting Glen Club had a get together and they were also blessed by the weather God. The Quinns are summer holidaying in Ireland and, up to yet, Kirikee Ronan O’Gara has taken 3 Green Stars. Finally Sue Sutton had a smile as big as the sun when her Bailielands Leanbh Orga took the Green Star and Best of Breed at Sligo to make her up to an Irish Champion (subject to IKC confirmation).
Big congratulations everybody!
