The big four, Clonmel, Killarney, Limerick and Tralee are preceeded by the Dublin based Navan Group 1, 2 and 5 shows which attracted the visitors to Cloghran for a number of breed specialties also.

The super surroundings of the Fitzgerald’s Woodlands House Hotel welcomed the exhibitors to the 83rd Limerick Championship show and as always the show was an excellent event. Claudio De Guiliani’s Best in Show winner was Sean Carroll and James Newman’s Papillon male Multi CH Denemore Iconsruben who was handled by James to the top spot and who was repeating his 2009 BIS win at the same venue.
