President’s Address 14/7/2016

Dear breeder,

The most important part of our society is each and every one of you. Each breeder, big and small make up the largest breed society in the country. As council, our duty is to represent all of you as best we can and to represent ourselves while doing so.

As you will see, we now have a new website which I would hope you will all find easy to use. This is to be one of the shop windows we will use to promote our breed both here and abroad. Our aim as council, is to make our society the most streamlined and professional there is out there. To do this, we will need to make sure that we receive the best value possible for every Euro spent. The need for promotion and advertising is greater than ever and this will be addressed. Together, we will strive to make our society and breed, bigger and better than ever.

The costs for breeders have increased over the last number of years in many ways, feed, registrations, fuel etc. Ideally, the aim of council would be to be able to reduce the registration fees as soon as possible. This is not a guarantee but I assure you, if it is at all possible, it will be done.

It is you, the breeders, that elect each one of us to council and that is a privileged position to hold. Our contact numbers for those of you that don’t already have them are available on our website under the Council Members tab. Your thoughts, opinions and concerns are important and as your elected council, we want you, the members, to make them known to us. Every effort will be made to address any concerns you may have.

I would like to thank you for your hard work and support at the local shows so far this year and indeed the ones yet to take place.  It is priceless advertising.  Looking forward to your continued support and feedback over the coming months.


Kevin Maguire,

President ICCS.
