I won my first field trial in 1985 and since then have gone on to win over 40 field trials with mainly Labradors but also with Cocker and Springer Spaniels.
During my time I have been placed 7 times in the Irish Retriever Championship, obtaining 2 x 1st places, 3 x 2nd places and 2 x 3rd places.
In 2004 I was placed 1st, 2nd and Guns Choice in the Irish Retriever Championship and in 2003 also won Irish Retriever of the Year.
I have represented Ireland on numerous occasions at both the CLA Game Fair and the Skinners International Retriever Test and I have been on a winning team at both events. I am an A Panel Judge with both the English and the Irish Kennel Clubs and in 2010 judged the Irish Retriever Championship.
