Australian Grand Champion & Duel Champion (T)

Tirriki Ciaran O'Casey CCD CD JD

Ciaran

Primary carer & co owner Pamela Gelme (Victoria)

 

     

Pamela Gelme visited Casey while Casey was in quarantine in Melbourne.  A promise was made that when a Casey son was born, he would be hers.  Ciaran was the only boy in our litter, so over the border to the Gelme household he went.  Co-owned by Robyn and Pamela He could rival sister Carragh for being spoilt! 

I’m sure that as Ciaran showed leanings towards landscape gardening methodically chewing his way through the new sprinkler system and investigating the distance to China via an underground tunnel, Pamela has mentally sent him back across the border.  And I do apologise to Tony for the condition of his Greek dictionary, a passionate favourite in-house source of entertainment.  However, Ciaran has his father’s great laid-back temperament, which is so easy to live with which does compensate for some misdemeanours.

Ciaran has been in the winner’s circle from the outset, his heritage so very obvious.  His is without doubt the most successful Australian bred male being shown with a record to which others can aspire.  As with his sister Carragh, we have no need to embellish HIS accomplishments!

I would like to thank Pamela for the beautiful way in which our boy is put down – even with a coat like ours, there is never a hair out of place!

THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!

Ciaran a member of Australia's most successful IWS showing family, his contribution to the family's accomplishments quintessential.

With an incredible heritage to uphold as a baby Ciaran quietly & confidently stepped up to the mark & began making his presence felt.

Creating history, is the tradition with Donogh & Tirriki, Ciaran is the most consistently awarded Australian bred male in conformation.

Sharing the limelight and making it yet another enviable family affair at the most prestigious show in Australia for 2005 – the 150th. ANNIVERSARY ROYAL MELBOURNE SHOW, Ciaran was awarded the Reserve CC to his illustrious father, the Runner-Up Best of Breed. Litter sister Carragh took BEST OF BREED with their mother taking the bitch Reserve CC – a great flashback to the 2004 Royal Melbourne Show.  

No other Australian bred IWS male has had the incredible In Group & In Show wins as Ciaran achieved in 2006. Continuing the tradition in 2007 with a BEST IN SHOW, there is no need to embellish the facts!

As is Pamela’s penchant, late 2006 Ciaran commenced his foray into other exciting fields of endeavour available to our great breed. Gaining his CCD in 2 consecutive weekends, with 1st & 2nd placings in 2/3 qualifying trials, he has created history once more, being the first to attain this title.

2007/8 saw Ciaran successful in the conformation ring. Invites were issued again to join the VCA Agility Demonstration
Team & 'Gundogs are Fundogs' at the Pet & Animal ExpoBetween demonstrations he further showed his versatility and super temperament working the catwalk modelling a range of dog fashions!

Two generations of GRAND CHAMPIONS & ALL BREEDS BEST IN SHOW
WINNERS - a huge challenge of tradition to uphold as Ciaran continues
to fill the shoes of tradition with ease.

We are immensely proud of Ciaran and his consistent achievements.
