Based in Limerick, Ireland, Irish Labradors is the home of Nampara Labradors.
Founded by award-winning breeder and trainer Ivan Lee, these trialling breeds are rapidly making a name for themselves across Ireland & beyond.
Ivan has recently expanded his services, and this website will provide you with details of the pups available to buy as well as the dogs and bitches which are available for breeding.

Ivan got his first gundog at an early age, his parents received an Irish Red Setter pup as a present for his Christening and he has kept dogs ever since.
Growing up in the countryside, it was inevitable that he would get involved in country sports: from ferreting, shooting, fishing to hunting, he has participated in them all.
But it was when he got his first Labrador that he found his true passion - trialling. He has made up three field trial champions to date and qualified one other dog to open stake, and has qualified for the Irish Retriever Championships no less than eight times.
Ivan has represented Ireland four times in International Gundog events, and won first and second at the Irish Game and Country Fair in Emo, Co. Laois; he also won the Clonmel Game Fair with the highest scoring dogs on the day.
Ivan is a B panel judge for the Irish Kennel Club and is the Treasurer of the Golden Vale Gundog Club.
He currently has four Labradors in his kennels.
In his day to day life Ivan works with a veterinary company.
