The Irish Water Spaniel Club has always set out to promote the breed since the origin of the club.
The Committee set out in its 125th year to promote the breed this year and we were very successful as we had 17 dogs entered. We wish to thank our judge Mrs Liz Cooper for doing a great job and been so encouraging especially with our members who have never shown before.
I would like to thank the Committee and their family members for their work on the day. This was a very enjoyable day for all involved.
The Committee would like to thank our sponsors Happydog and also all the help from Fermoy Canine Club and Dogshowentry.
