‘ROLY’ IS THE FESTIVE SAINT
 

It was back to the show ring for many after the Christmas festivities at the National Show Centre in Dublin on December 27th where there was an entry of 1,238 in competition classes for the panel of Irish judges to choose from. 

A very reasonable start time for judging of 11am meant that exhibitors didn't have to be there too early after any fall out from their celebrations of the Christmas holiday. There's no doubt however that one particular family in County Wicklow would be celebrating their big win, as Austin and Ann Long Doyle and daughter Kristina were absolutely delighted to see Ireland's Elaine Drennan, of the Highbriar Dobermanns and Poodles, award the Best in Show rosette to their top winning St Bernard Ch Il Divo Roly by Longsdyle finishing off a great year for the team and confirming 'Roly' as the top Group 2 exhibit for 2012. 

There were four previous BIS 2012 winners in the Best in Show line up so Elaine had a strong gathering before her of some of the countries most well known dogs to choose from. Without doubt a first for the breed since the switch to FCI groupings , this win was a big day for the breed bringing ‘Roly’ to the top of the Group 2 rankings in group competition and making it a very proud day for them. The Puppy Stakes saw a double for Clodagh and Orna Fallon as their Pug Clodana Bojangles ended a super year for them giving them another Combined Canine GAIN Pup of the Year qualifying spot for next Easter’s finale.
