Native Dogs Of Ireland at the Irish Fair

Dogs and Ireland go hand in hand. The Native Dogs of Ireland have been gathering since 1985 to participate at the Irish Fair each year to share their love and to educate and inform those lovers of the Emerald Isle about the historical uses of each breed. 

This year, we will not have a dedicated location due to logistical and pandemic related challenges.  However, you will find them on parade at the Croke Park Sports field on Saturday and Sunday.  Please note, not all Breeds are in attendance each or all day but you may catch a variety of the 8 Native Breeds of Ireland. From the several Terriers, including the Irish, (Red or Black & Tan) Soft Coated Wheaten, Kerry Blue and on a rare occasion the Elusive Glen of Imaal, to the Hunting Breeds of the Red/White & Red Setters, and the Irish Water Spaniels and their webbed toes. Lastly we always have a vast array of the Dog of Irish Kings and Nobles, the Gentle Giant, or Irish Wolfhound.
