ABBEYFEALE





Abbeyfeale must rate very high on everyones best meetings list......its in my top four .

The running of this meeting is just superb and they never get easy weather

Great move forward to put Ray timing in.......More clubs should be doing this now.....it greatly adds to the interest and helps punters out against the bookies.

Fantastic Finals......we saw a few dogs step upto the plate at this meeting.
those to impress other than the winners were
Blades of Joy and Cill Ide Abu

And what about that All Age Final!....two dogs at the top of their form
Excellent
