Ballyclare Fionn Mac Cumhaill Wins Green Star Dog St. Paddy's Day

Major Congratulations to Enda Buckley & Fionn ( Ballyclare Finn Mc Cool) for lifting Green Star dog against a 5 five dog competition including O'Tooles Mondo, Romainville Bodhran ( Eurodog 2010 winner) and Swedish dog Irish Rovers Sir Bob Brookmeyer. Best of Breed went to Aberann Tiffany.
This is Enda's first time at St. Pats day show with an exhibit and Fionn is his very first dog bred in his Ballyclare kennel. What a start we are all so happy for him and thrilled for Fionn who apparently rose to the occasion and delighted Enda with a star performance that went all right on the night.
Fionn is out of 2 WORKING glens and is on his way to becoming an excellent sporting dog too. Apparently his excellent condition was clearly visible at the show ring where his well defined musculature was on display for all to see.
Fionn is a grandson of my Bailielands Bruce and my Ballyclare Oscar is his younger full brother :)
Well done Fionn & Enda!
