The Irish Wolfhound Show was always going to be an event to remember, with such enthusiasm and excitement from all members. With no chance for many meetups during the last two years, the weekend past was a great chance for members new and old to come along, introduce their amazing dogs to one another and catch up with friends that hadn’t all been together for far too long.
The Irish Wolfhound Club of Ireland have a longstanding and very special relationship with Connolly’s Red Mills. Today, we’re delighted to be able to sponsor the club with our Go Native grain-free feed, perfect for the amazing creatures that Wolfhounds are, but the relationship goes back many, many years.
It was a highlight of the day for us when the Wolfhound Club of Ireland had a special artefact to hand over to William Connolly, who was in attendance on the day. William was presented with a gorgeous, framed arrangement of letters written by William’s great grandfather to the Wolfhound club back in 1923. All perfectly preserved, this letter is a real look back in time and is such a special reminder of the great bond between Connolly’s Red Mills and the Irish Wolfhound Club of Ireland. It’s particularly interesting that both Red Mills and The Irish Wolfhound Club of Ireland share their date of inception, with both bursting onto the scene in the year 1908!
It was a great day for all at Castletown House, Kildare on Sunday the 12th of June, with a fabulous parade of amazing Wolfhounds competing for an array of prizes. We were delighted to be in a position to sponsor the show with our Go Native Dog Food, a great and nutritious choice perfectly suited to Wolfhounds. The Go Native recipe uses the finest of Irish ingredients and up to 70% single source Irish meat in its recipe, which is also gluten and grain-free. This, combined with a great taste and the knowledge that it’s all made in the neighbouring County Kilkenny makes it a great choice for the dogs on the day, and later on for the lucky winners who got to take some home!
There was an amazing array of wolfhounds present on the day, and due to their lovely calm and relaxed natures, many on the day were coming to the show as beloved family pets. As one of Ireland’s eight native dog breeds, the Irish Wolfhound has a special place in Irish mythic and lore.
Celebrations continued into the night at the Leixlip Manor Hotel; a very fitting end to a great and special day of reminiscing, celebration, and the judging of some of the most incredible dogs in Ireland.
To celebrate our special partnership with the Irish Wolfhound Club of Ireland, we’d like to offer a 15% on the our Go Native range, beloved by many wolfhounds on the day and the particular sponsor of this show.
