The Irish National Sheepdog Trials 2021


This year, the Irish National was held in Killarney, in Co. Kerry. For anyone who doesn’t know, Killarney is right down in the south of Ireland. We had no National in 2020 as the result of Covid, so everyone was very anxious for this one.

the National was held over three days. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I competed with my dogs on the Thursday and Saturday, which left me with Friday free to do as I liked.

I was keen to get away from the event for a while just to freshen up my head for Saturday. So on Friday afternoon, I met up with local man, Dan Casey, and he took me for a look around. I made a short video that gives some insight into the afternoon.
