Saturday  I toddled down to Glenlough Kennels nr Kildorry Co Cork,  Home of John Murphy and kennels to the Glenlough / Foxhall dogs. Owned and trained by John and Mick Walsh.

John farms and milks cows and is helped out during the day by father in law Mick who does the feeding.

There was a super trio of Lochbo Blake pups in the paddocks. Ive always though the Lochbo dogs very under used and a great line to get into

Four nice Saplings for next season should give them plenty to do
A dog and a bitch pup by Newinn Wonder  looked very smart....out off the super bitch Dixie Darling

And two syndicate Pups for the boys from Glanworth.....the Three Zeds syndicate

A dog and a bitch pup out of Dale Roisin by Adios Alonso

The Kennel Star is still boss af the place and can be seen doing inspections....

Uptown Smurf is the bitch we all dream to own......a fast bitch but injury prone
but her efforts in the breeding paddocks just blows you away.
With no less than 18 Cup ....Trial Stake Winners or sucessful broods thrown she has made her mark on the coursing field for generations to come

Impressive credentials

John and Mick have a great set up to enjoy the Family Hobby

Kennels and paaddock are set so you can work easily

Theres a super fenced large field to give pups a good streach and a great gallop.

Its no surprise to see the stake winners this small kennel produces.


will be mating his first bitches

He always gave his best and was near the mark
