I have been Training and Competing in Field Trials and Working Test for the past 30 years. Since then I have made up 4 Field Trial Champions and won several trials with other dogs. I have represented Ireland in International Working Test over 40 times at Game Fairs in Ireland and parts of UK with 7 different Dogs having won Top Retriever on several occasions. I have selected and captained the Irish International Retriever Team for the Anglesey Show and Fair in Wales for the past 25 years which we have won a number of times. During the summer months I do Gundog Demonstrations at the National Countrysports Fairs with my dogs.
I am an „A“ panel Judge for the last 25 years, having judged the Irish Retriever Championship on 4 occasions and the Belgian, Spanish and French Retriever Championship also. I have Judged the IWT on 3 occasions and other working tests or field trials in Hungary, Italy, France, Switzerland, Austria, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Czech Republic.
During the shooting season I pick up with my dogs two days a week in my local shoot at Castledillon unless I am trailing.
I am very honoured to judge “The Munich Cup” and I wish all competitors the best of luck.
