A Day with Dan O`Connor & Family



I spent a couple of days in Kerry last month and couldnt bypass the chance to visit Scartaglen, and see the O`Connor Family.

Dan and his family live for coursing, and are example of what makes the sport so special.

Just a ordinary family who all enjoy the same hobby and have fun together.

All the dogs are home bred and are kenneled  in the back garden.

March Is On was whelped there out of their own bitch Dedicated. Once the pups reach earmarking 
they are then passed on to good friend and partner in the dogs Paddy Fitzgerald (Glin) to be reared on.

the saplings then return to Dan for training.

Dan , Mary, Karen & Denis with baby Danielle,
Kieran Fitzgerald and Grainne with Dedicated

March Is On

Dedicated
Winner of a Oaks Trial Stake at Abbeyfeale in 2005

While she has only had small litters theres always been a TS winner or two among them...

Inspiring
A Oaks TS winner in Cork , her first litter are due to run this year



I was very impressed with Dans Kennels
They are spotless and as good as ive seen for a small set up
covered run.....small grass turnout....large grooming area


The Kennels are very comfy with heaters set on a thermastat
And beds you would be pleased to sleep on yourself





Karen with Hangonaminute


and Grainne with Off shore Eoin


Press clippings decorate the kennel walls

Nothing is spared when it comes to the dogs and it shows in how they perform.

Thankyou very much for a lovely day
