Group: Fetchies in Ireland

85 members [See all]

Any Fetchies that live in any corner or side street on the island of Ireland.. as some race organisers don't publicise their races in the best way possible -we can share info as we receive slips of paper at the finish line of whatever race we happen to do... any further suggestions would be very well received! Also anybody is MOST welcome from other countries to join us, whether you have some connection with the auld sod, have visited the auld sod once upon a time, or have never set foot on the auld sod but have a fondness for Guinness, whiskey (with an e!), sport and a general spot of banter!!
