3 Club Shows, 5 Group placements and Midland Counties closing!

Good weekend with 3 Glen of Imaal Terrier Club shows so a chance to see lots of the breed together; to the USA though first. Kilkenny’s Granite Glen Rooney, on a four show weekend, took 3 Best of Breeds and two Owner Handler Group 3 placements. She was actually Best Opposite to Liberty’s Padraig at South Shore but he is professionally handled so not eligible for OH Group. Emerald Isle Keely with Daulton had 2 BOBs and Gp3 and Gp4 OH at the Licking River Shows. Okay it’s only a Match but nice to hear of a Glen baby taking Group 1 and then Best In Match, obviously a “together” youngster.

At Porvoo Show Best of Breed was Finnabair North American Nebulon with Gleann Nora taking Best Bitch and Best Veteran. Now the club shows. The Glen Association of Ireland (held in conjunction with the Irish Breeds Show) saw Abberann Conan take BOB, Best  Veteran, Best Veteran at the Irish Breeds Show and to finish up took Reserve Best In Show. Abberann Ennya was Best Bitch. The Irish Sporting Glen Club had Patrick Dooner judge and he awarded Best of Breed to Bailielands Dodger at Stiubhard and Best Bitch to Glencroga Pretty Cara.

Secretary Malinka Lingmont sends the following about the Dutch Club Show:-

Saturday September 12th the Dutch Glen of Imaal terrier Association held their annual clubmatch.

As the Association has its 20th anniversary Mrs. Jean Rogers was invited to judge the dogs.

There were 33 entries, only two absent.

Best of Breed was Billy Tow von Au Deich

BOS was his daughter, Fear Fiuntair Candy Keva.

Best puppy: Manor of Choclat Dew Nina

Best veteran: Spirit of Ireland Angel.

A special award, the Wicklow Wisselbeker, was initiated this year because of the 20th anniversary and is to be given the best dog bred and owned by its breeder. It will be handed out every year at the clubmatch. The names of the winners will be engraved on it.

This year it was mrs. Geesje Koops with her bitch Mystic Emma of Glens Delight to receive this award for the first time. Congratulations!

Well done everybody!!
