Glin 2nd Day

Apart from the gales and rain it was a super days coursing at Glin.....

What a cracking Cup so early in the season.  I make no excuse for being a big fan of Wallace Green................he gives 100% and never takes his eye off the hare...........love him!!

Wallace Green

First thing in the morning he meets Atlantic Style in what should be a great buckle.

Atlantic Style


Ballydorgan Hero meets Whitestone Rock...........two super reliable dogs who always give their best.
At the bottom of the card Sporting Rio is going well, doing his best work at the top of the field ...and a longer test will see him a big contender

Sporting Rio and Moat Mattie



If you looking for a "dark horse"..........local dog Floating Rain has some good clocks , with Litter Sister, Floating Spirit  going well in the Local Stake


While we need the rain...........please can it fall in the evenings.....

Judge Paul Horan did a super job....

Id say theres a few nice dog pups in the Derby............one I like the look of ....Gallys Bridge ran unsighted first course,  so a "back to slips" puts him at a disadvantage.......and its a 64 dog stake so all energy will be needed.
                                                              Gallys Bridge


Another impressive pup.....imho is Stiff Test............showed huge pace in 3rd round, to then get a bit of work. At 100lb this fella could do without the turns .....and came out looking like a tired dog in the next round.  None the less hes one for the note book!


Stiff test and Savemybacon ......working in the rain!

at the bottom of the card Shannonvale Matt meets Faithlegg Matt, both pups have won impressive so the buckle should be fair.


The weather improved for the later runs and the attendence was good.

Coursing starts a 12.00 in the morning...........All age bitch stake then complete card.

For those going for first time.....From Limerick take the N69.........At Glin turn left into the main villiage road....................At the fork take the Left turn..............the coursing ground is along that road on the right.
