Monday 5th July:
A nice day and not to hot and perfect for trialling at Shelbourne Park which is the main job of today. We need supplies, food for pups we did all the paper work at the weekend so that will have to be posted off. We go the sand run finished in the garden paddocks.

Friday 9th July:
It’s a cold but dry day. We need loads of supplies such as fish so I have to go to Killybegs. Our Red Mills order arrived so that was packed away and we are cutting the grass in the rearing paddocks. We changed all the beds in the kennels and in the rearing houses, we also injected all the pups so it’s been a good day.
Saturday 10th July:
Its an overcast morning but I don’t think we will get rain. We emptied the fish out of the van this morning. We need supplies. We have broods going to Dunphys Stud for mating. We have the first of our retired hounds going to their new home. The main job at the kennels is galloping, changing the last of the beds, gardening, preparing dogs for schooling and hunting.

Its an overcast morning but I don’t think we will get rain. Its a big day in the soccer with England playing at 8pm tonight. I’ll watch the game at home. Its 16 month since I had a drink. At the kennels it will be a typical Sunday where we cook, clean, let hounds out of kennels and feed. We also have a bit of paperwork to do. With a bit of luck we will also get our gardens tidied up.
