DAY OUT WITH THE MINKIES

July 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

 

I had the honour of joining the Co Cork Minkhounds at one of their summer meets recently, outside Millstreet. It was a glorious day and the pack was in tremendous form, hunting from 11am until almost 6pm.

The hunt is active between May and September and has a great following of local enthusiasts, as well as regular visitors from overseas who thorougly enjoy watching these hounds, their huntsman Brian McDonogh, and the hunt staff, work tirelessly in the water all day.
It really is a wonderful sight and I hope to get back down again before the season ends...
