Since the inauguration of this Club, one of the main goals of our various Committees over the years has been to try to attract and encourage new people into our sport. So with that in mind, the Club organised a training class on Sunday 24th April, on the surrounding land of Inch House, Country House and Restaurant, Bouladuff, Thurles, Co.Tipperary by kind permission of the landowner/proprietor Mr. John Egan.
The class attracted handlers who were interested in having a better trained shooting dog, handlers who were interested in becoming involved in Field Trials and a few handlers who were already active on the trial circuit and were hoping to pick up some new tips.
The Trainers for the day were Club Chairman – Pat Brennan (Clodahill Spaniels), Damian Kelly (Anahoe Spaniels) and Paul O’Brien (Corrib Labradors) who all shared their knowledge and experience with all the participants.
The day consisted of some demonstrations with Labradors and Spaniels of various ages and plenty of interaction between everyone in attendance.
The Committee would like to thank Pat Brennan, Damian Kelly and Paul O’Brien for running the class and also Mr. John Egan for providing us with the use of his ground and most of all everybody who came and supported the class.
