GLIN PRESENTATION

Last night saw a gathering of Glin Coursing Club members.....at the Rale McCoy public house.
the occasion was to congratulate the achievements of Club Members this year. There were two presntations, the first to connections of Glin View Bitle.....she won a 64 bitch trail Stake at Balltduff and went to the Semifinals of the Oaks .....going out to eventual winner Lisloose Accord

Pat & Josephine O`Connor, Ann& Maurice Wallace are presented with a beautiful cut class bowl by Paddy John Fitzgerald

The second presentation was to mark the achievements of the Wonderful Bexhill Brian........Dog of the year!!
Need I say more
Glin Club is in the heart of great dog country and many fine dogmen are posted on the walls of the Real McCoy......going back to the 1950s.....and some we know today are there in pictures as young boys.
You carnt help but be impressed by the History of this fine club
It was good to hear stories of when the Club held its meeting in the Castle grounds.....attended by the whole villiage ....with fair in attendance too.
I was amazed to see our much traveled President in attendance........even more impressed when I heard he was flying to Germany from Dublin first thing in the morning.
