Return Fixture with Belgium – Sept 7th

The Irish Wolfhounds are pleased to announce the return friendly fixture with the Barbarians in Belgium on Saturday 7th September 2019 (venue to be confirmed).

The Wolfhounds are looking forward to the trip and another step towards the development of Irish football in the International arena and playing in the European competitions.

Alan Orr (Wolfhounds General Manager): “We are delighted to be travelling to Belgium to play the Barbarians in this return fixture and look forward to meeting up with the coaches, staff and players again. I’m sure this will be another gripping game, which went right down to the wire in Ireland and I am sure the Barbarians will be hungry for the win in preparation for their IFAF qualifying games.”

Wolfhounds Mascot: Candy

Candy’s pedigree name is Chinara of Shantamon, born in Janurary 2016. Shantamon is the kennel name, established in 1973 by Gerard and Pauline Clarke.

Some of Candy’s wins:

  • Best in Show – Tralee 2019
  • Best in Show – The Hound Association 2018
  • Reserve Best in Show – Carlow 2018

She is currently Ireland’s top winning wolfhound and we would like to thank Gerry and Pauline for bringing her to Navan to be the mascot to the Wolfhounds and we are sure a star in her own right!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all are American supporters and friends from The Irish Wolfhounds Management Team and Players. We appreciate all your support and hope you have a great day!

Special thanks also to Clann Hospitality.
