All Ireland Dog Show


The Roundstone All Ireland Dog show, held in August, has now become a very popular event. This event brings dogs and their handlers from all over Ireland. The idea of the Dog Show is to select an All Ireland Supreme Champion and Reserve Champion. This event, thanks to Paddy the Yank, is held up on the Show Grounds. Last years event was so well attended, we are hoping that this years show will be even more interesting, with activities for the whole family and our canine friends alike.
