Judging Experience

I started my Show career in 1966, when I handled Staffordshire bull Terriers and Bull Terriers at Shows. I acquired my "MOINDEARG" Prefix and bred Staffordshire Bull Terriers and Bull Terriers, and also have Jack Russell Terriers. I have been very successful over the years, making up several Champions, and have owned and bred Champions in Ireland, England, Finland, Sweden, Poland and Australia, and had the honour of winning CC's at CRUFTS two years in succession plus Group Placing. I have been Chairman of The Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier Association, and The All Ireland Bull Terrier Club and I am at present Chairman of Swords & District Canine Society - ALL BREEDS. I am a Life Member of The Irish Kennel Club, and serve as a representative on it Council Committee.

I first judge at CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW level in Ireland in 1979, and over the following years have progressed to judge "ALL TERRIERS" FCI GROUP 3, and the GROUP itself, and I also judge FCI GROUP 10, and the GROUP itself, and most breeds in FCI GROUP 6.

I have judged at CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW level with CAC & CACIB's in the following countries over the last number of years:

America, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Holland, Hungry, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Siberia (Russia), Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland.
