breed Open show 2023


Breed Open Show 17th June 2023
Judge : Stewart Cummings

We had a super day yesterday in Cloghran, the rain stopped and the sun came out for our Breed Open Show.      Our judge was Mr. Stewart Cummings who attracted a great entry of 40 golden retrievers.  A special word of thanks to Stewart for the wonderful way he had with the dogs and the exhibitors.      A big thank you to every exhibitor who supported the show and made it a very enjoyable show.

Thank you to the committee of the Sword Ch. Show for allowing us hold our show in conjunction with their championship show.    Thank you to our sponsors Petmania in Navan for the dog food.  Thanks for our stewards on the day, Sandra & Mairead.

This year we celebrate 70th Anniversary of the club and to mark this at our open show all the first prize rosettes were beautifully created by the Awardboard Rosettes and marked the 70th Anniversary.    The main winner rosettes were glowing in the green and gold.

Thank you to Onlinedogs for your support with the catalogue and schedule.

Finally big thank to Ervin from Visions Photography for full coverage of this special show, there will be more photos on this site from each class later in the week and a full report in ICP.

Congratulations to all the main winners, I hope you enjoyed the show and we look forward to welcoming you to our Championship Show on the 19th August, 2023.

David Galvin, Show Secretary
