mr. Anthony Killykeen Doyle overleden
Received from the secretary of the irish Wolfhound Club Ireland
Sadly Anthony Killykeen Doyle passed away on the evening of the 6th January from cancer. He did not give in to his illness, told very few about it and was even judging in America just a couple of months ago.
Tony celebrated his involvement with Irish
Wolfhounds for fifty five years in 2009. During
these years he pursued the breeding of
temperamentally sound hounds which would be
capable of carrying out the original tasks of the
breed. His care and devotion to his dogs was
apparent to all who met him. Tony was an
institution in wolfhounds who had enormous
knowledge and experience of the breed and
delighted in sharing his expertise with others
through his writing and judging.
Tony was a past President of the Irish Wolfhound Club of Ireland and of the European Irish Wolfhound Club. He was unanimously elected an honorary member of the IWCI at the last AGM and always supported us when he could; we and all his friends are saddened by his passing.
