Monday 17th October:
A wet and windy day and a busy day. We had dog food to collect this morning a trip to the vet all the paper work to post off and we had to have all hounds fed before 12 o’clock and we only had one van to go to Shelbourne Park so we only took 10 hounds for trials and handslips but the day has gone well.

Nice day but cold thankfully no rain. We have hounds that are sold going to the UK with Ross Myles, we need all our waste away a trip to the cash and carry, food for pups and at the kennels it will be a day for tidying up doing a swap around with hounds and worming pups.
Wednesday 19th October:
Were doing Wednesdays journal on Sunday morning. When we do the journal late it means we’ve had a very busy week. This week has been non stop. I was in the UK twice for supplies and I was in Killybegs collecting fish. Wednesday was the day I went for fish.

Sunday 23rd October:
Its a big day today as my head lad Padgie has the day off for his sons 12th birthday. We all wish Kuba a very happy birthday. As we do the journal at 8am we have a bit of rain. It will be a day for feeding, cleaning kennels, letting hounds out that are in kennels and cleaning. Whatever happens at 4:30 today I will be watching Newcastle on the TV against Spurs. Were a different team now and I think we will get a result.
