FTCH Astraglen Rusk (Bracken)

Bracken was bred by Nigel Carville, out of Heather of Clonbara and by GB field trial champion Garendon Captain, who won the IGL Retriever Championship.

Bracken always had a lot of ability; from a young age, he proved to be an easy dog to train, and learned very quickly.

He was a very hard-going dog, and you were always on the edge of your seat when handling him in competition.

He qualified for an Irish Retriever team at 18 months, and won his first field trial at 21 months. He went on to win 5 trials and qualified for the Irish International Gundog Team 3 times.

He took part in the first Irish team to compete against the first American team to come to Europe; he also won the Irish Game & Country Fair in Emo and The Clonmel Game Fair.

He has qualified for the Irish Retriever Championship no fewer than four times.

He is now retired from trials now, but still enjoys his hunting and picking up.

FTCH Lurriga Bracken (Crocket)

Field trial champion Lurriga Bracken (Crocket) was bred by Keith McNamara out of Routagh Teal (Bell) whom Ivan bred and was was by his own field trial champion Astraglen Rusk.

Crocket was very much like his father in that he was a hard-going dog, but he also was very much calmer.

Crocket was a pleasure to own and train; he won a field trial first time out and went on to become a field trial champion in his second season, but his greatest achievement was when he got a Diploma of Honour in the 2009/2010 Irish Retriever Championship.

He was exported to Spain in the summer of 2010 and is now happily picking up partridge in the sun.
