Update:
Thank you all,  this family have found a new companion and a four year old Irish has been rehomed through our appeal on  www.bardonhill.com.

I know of a lovely home waiting for an older Irish Setter. They have had two puppies & an older bitch from me over the years but now because they are older themselves would prefer not to take on a puppy. They are still very active & it will be a super home. a bitch preferred but a dog considered.
