Gaye O'Connor (Caispern)


It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Gaye O’Connor, Caispern Irish Setters & Irish Red & White Setters, after a short illness.

 

Gaye was a successful exhibitor, breeder and judge. She had been showing since the early seventies and had much success in the show ring with both her Reds & Red & Whites. Gaye was a committee member of ISBC & IRWC, she was also the Secretary of Sutton Coldfield & DCS for over 20 years.

 

She will be greatly missed by all her friends in the canine world.

We offer our deepest sympathy to Gaye's husband Eamonn, sister Wendy and family at this sad time.


Peggy Grayson 1920-2020

She was a very well known International judge and awarded CCs in Irish.

She judged many major shows including Crufts, and travelled to Australia, New Zealand, USA and accross most of Europe judging and sharing her knowledge.

She was an author of sixteen books on various dog breeds,
and a regular columnist in Dog World & Our Dogs papers.

 

Peggy also had a keen interest in the equestrian world. She was a judge of
Mountain & Moorland Ponies, and a former secretary of Burton Horse Show.

She was a prolific countryside journalist and a frequent contributor to Horse & Hound covering major shows and writing a regular column.

ISAE Announcement 2020 Championship Show

The Officers and Committee of the Irish Setter Association, England regret to advise that in light of the ongoing COVID19 situation we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our championship show and open show (already postponed from June) which had been scheduled to take place on Saturday 3rd October 2020 at the Kennel Club building at Stoneleigh.  This decision has been made in light of current Government and Kennel Club guidance and whilst very difficult to make, the health and safety of our exhibitors, judges, spectators and committee members must take priority.  We wish you all well over the coming months and look forward to seeing you all at our events in 2021.
