Edbrios & Blue Ivanhoe
Kerry Blue Terriers of Ireland in 2000-2007
Published in The Kerry Blue Terrier Association Hanbook 2008
The year 2000 in Ireland was very successful for the breed with C. Neill’s homebred Kensbridge Karbon Kopy taking Pedigree Dog of the Year and also Northern Ireland Dog of the year. “Bailey” then moves to the USA where he gains his American title and more BIS wins and becomes Top Kerry of the year 2003.
The same year another well-known dog is starting his show career, Weatherhead’s homebred Hallsblu Royal Flush. Also Hallsie is later exported to the USA where he makes a significant show career, wining both Westminster and Montgomery. The year 2000 also sees T. O’Neil’s young homebred bitch Fajara Too Hot to Handle winning reserve Best in Show at the Irish Native Breeds Show. A few years later she goes on having a great show career in Hawaii and the USA.

The beginning of 2001 sees the outbreak of foot and mouth disease and the traditional St. Patrick’s Dog Show and many others were cancelled. This doesn’t stop Deardon & Robinson’s Dasumianco Face Value to dominate the ring at the end of the year. This bitch also wins BOB at Crufts 2002. Another young bitch started her show career late in the year 2001. It is O’Brien’s Glenfitor Clodagh at Edbrios. She becomes the Reserve Top Irish Show Dog of Year 2001 – 2002, wins CC at Crufts in 2003 and a week after that Group-1 at the traditional St. Patrick Show. Her sister Malone’s homebred Glenfitor Ciara becomes Annual Champion (Top Kerry) in 2002 and another litter-sister Glenfitor Sorcha is campaigned to her champion title in 2003-2004.
