IRISH JUDGE CRUFTS 22

I would like to thank the Officer’s and Committee of Crufts for allowing me the honour of judging my breed, it certainly was a privilege. Also, what a thrill it was to see my Best of Breed go on to win the Terrier Group. Thank you to my extremely efficient Stewards who kept the ring moving along nicely. To the Exhibitors, thank you for your entries and attendance, it certainly looks as though our breed is on the right path, with so many sound dogs of the correct size, I am pleased to say that all pads were free of cracks.
