Ireland holiday - 2016

Saturday 20th August is the start of my annual holiday to Ireland

I head off with Lesley to the Emerald Isle, where we will show our English Springers, have fun on the beach, and eat far too much!

We were a little unsure if we would even get there this year, as there was an unseasonal bad weather, which meant they had cancelled the 2 ferries before our one!!! The sea was a little rough and windy, but we sailed and arrived in Ireland late. Normally this would not be an issue, but we drive straight from the ferry to the first show

Arrived at Clonmel very late, but by the skin of our teeth did not miss our class!
