In more recent times we have had the pleasure in owning and showing Irish Wolfhounds and Greyhounds

A small Northern Irish family home deep in the countryside overlooking the shores of Lough Neagh.

Kingfisher Cottage

All our dogs live in this family environment running free by day and lying by the fireside in the evening .

(The 'kennel' word is never used at Kingfisher Cottage)

Although we describe ourselves as small we like to think we have enjoyed some huge successes in the show ring with all our breeds!

In the UK Rachel awards CCs in Irish Setters, Tony awards CCs in Weimaraners, GSP`s GWP`s and Vizslas as well as CICAB`s in FCI groups 7,8 & 10 & BIS.
