Walk, demonstration & tryout – Dec 03rd Co. Cavan

The O’Regan family have made a kind invitation for IWS owners and guests, to go to their home on Sunday 3rd December. The meeting is to start at noon, with a walk round the fields and a swim in the lough. There will then be a demonstration by local retriever, spaniel and HPR owners. the demonstration will be followed by a chance for your dogs to”give it a go’. As we all know our dogs will do their best to embarrass us (well mine will), but at least help and advice will be on hand.
Whilst IWS run as retrievers, they have been described in an article in a shooting magazine as “the first all round gundogs” This is our chance to put that theory to the test!

The address is,
Drumard,
Flynns Pass
Killykeen
Cavan
Eircode H12DP94.

Please let us know if you intend to come, we want to make sure there are enough mugs for everyone to get a cup of tea.
