I would like to thank National Gundog Association for their hospitality and invitation to judge Irish Setter Bitches at this show. My Stewards on the day were also excellent, thank you.
Also many thanks to the exhibitors for bringing their girls in such wonderful condition, presentation on the whole was excellent and my hands were spotless at the end of the day.  I know it's been said before but I was truly spoiled for choice in many classes and many decisions were very close.
