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.

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.
