“I grew up with German Shepherds, Rough Collies and English Cockers. My first dog was a Cairn Terrier. I have bred, owned and shown Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, as well as Bobtails and Tibetan Spaniels. I introduced Bernese Mountain dogs into Ireland many years ago. I have judged in most countries around the world, at world shows, European shows and The Crufts (I have judged the Male Cavaliers at the Crufts 2016). I am an all breeds judge at international level, I have had the pleasure of judging in America, South America, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Far East and most countries in Europe, also at various European and World Shows.”
