For the file

From the Irish Sporting Glen of Imaal Terrier Club:

The Irish glen of Imaal Sporting Club has been refused application for affiliation to the Irish Kennel club. The reason non so far despite contacting the kennel club 8 times in 2 week they still have not given us a reason for the refusal.  The glen of Imaal sporting club is the biggest Glen club in Ireland and is making great strides to ensure healthy dogs. We have a glen rescue centre for unwanted glens, A data base of Irish Glens to help members that want to breed, work out inbreeding % of the dogs so we can get it as low as possible to maintain strong dogs, and over 40 dogs DNA Tested for PRA in 4 years. We hold a field day and fun show every September and get 30 to 50 glens entered.   We applied for affiliation first in 2010 where we were told there would be a probation period of 3 years before full affiliation would be granted and we could carry on with our field days as normal until full affiliation was granted. We have not received any booklet with conditions or rules for  affiliation from the Irish kennel club. This means we have to guess our way through the year and what were supposed to do. Even on the web site if you were new to the breed there is no contact club for glens. (The Irish Glen of Imaal was a breed simply forgotten) not much is changing in the breed’s origin.
