Committee statement 
The committee are disappointed that a proportion of the membership feel the need to debate a committee decision on social media without any knowledge of the facts the committee took into consideration when arriving at their decision. The committee would point out that they are elected by the membership and have full power to deal with all matters arising which are not provided for in the Club Rules (Rule 1a). The provision of club shows and the associated schedules, trophies, prize cards etc therefore lie within their discretion. The committee assures the membership that the decision to suspend the Dave and Jean Malley Memorial classes was taken after a full and in depth debate. At this juncture we would point out that letters of concern regarding recognition of previous club officials had been received from respected members. Special Beginners classes in accordance with KC recommendations are being considered for the future along with the introduction of a Champion class and Memorial classes.

The oldest Irish Wolfhound club in the world,
established in 1885 by Capt George Augustus Graham.
