Cork Field Trials - 10th December - Sponsored by Engage Dog Food

13 December 2017

On the 10th of December, the Cork Field Trial Association held an Open Stake for A.V. Spaniels, excluding IWS, at the AWBEG Sports Shoot, Quitrent, Kildorrerey, Co. Cork, by the kind permission of Mr. Stuart Greaves. 

The weather, well, it was cold. Very cold. Rain, sleet, then snow. The excellent ground was muddy, as to be expected considering the weather, and there were a few places we couldn't hunt because of the swollen river, but there was still game to be had, and the dogs worked hard. 

The photographer had a difficult time. Rain and sleet makes for grainy dark photos! 

Judges Mr. J. King and Mr. F. Maunsell awarded:

1st Place: Mr. Richie Power, with his ESSD Bellelake Swannie, Sire FTCh Hollydrive Theo, Dam FTCh Molly Malone Two.

2nd Place: Mr. James Casey, with his ESSB FTCh Blackguard Ivy, Sire Hollydrive Theo, Dam Rosbeha Arris.

3rd Place: Mr. Jason Travers, with his ESSD Simcris Zeb, Sire Buccleuch Pleasure, Dam Meadowsweet Ginneken.

4th Place: Mr. Conor Kelly, with his ESSB Kirsto Wiggle of Miskinfern, Sire Hollydrive Theo, Dam Coedcae Cadwen.

COM Declan Boweman, with his ESSB Lisloran Diamond, Sire Hattonswood Broc, Dam Buddy's Girl of Lisloran.

Thank you to Mr. Stuart Greaves for providing the fine ground, to the judges, guns, the competitors, all of the various helpers.
