Irish Setters have been part of my family for over a century as pets and hunting companions. Since coming to Canada in 1968, I have owned 10. Georgia and Callen now live with me and Ciara visits for winter while her co-owner is away. Carannagh Kennel Reg'd is dedicated to producing sound, loving Irish Setters. Breeding stock is tested as appropriate for the breed. Puppies and adult dogs are raised and live in the home - and at least one takes up a good portion of my bed at night. Although many of my breeding have their championships and do well at obedience, field and other performance activities, my absolute priority when placing puppies is that they have responsible, loving owners who will make them an integral part of their families.

Carannagh Kennel was registered with the Canadian Kennel Club in 1998. I began my breeding program shortly thereafter with Kiersey and Callahan, drawing from both British and American lines. Both were my constant companions for more than 13 years.

Kiersey (Ch Fairline Kiersey) enjoyed agility and obedience, which she much preferred over conformation. She had a good nose for birds, and had 2 legs toward her Field Dog Junior (FDJ). She came from an illustrious line of British Irish through father Can/Am Ch Sametsuz Ard-Righ, including the 1993 Crufts Grand Champion against 21,000+ other dogs. Her mother was Ch Fairline Hollyglade of Munster.

Ch Hilloch's Callahan of Maronova CD, FDJ loved conformation and obedience. He completed his Canadian Championship at 20 months, his Field Dog Junior (FDJ) first 3 times out, and his Companion Dog (CD) obedience title with all scores over 191/200 shortly thereafter. Callahan and Anne also participated in the Shurgain Biathlon Invitational at Belleville Ont. in 2000 where he was the youngest dog to compete against several experienced obedience champions, including 3 of the top 10 in Canada in 1998-99. Callahan came from American/Canadian lines out of father Ch Hilloch's Rebel with a Cause and mother Maronova N Hilloch's Esterlea.
