Deel Harriers

Hunt type: Harriers
Areas: Co. Limerick
Country: Eire
Contact information may be out of date so has been hidden.
Hunt country: Our hunt country consists of open pasture land, dotted with some thick ringforts, and some heavily covered banks, to big tight plantations and some very hilly terrain also.
History: We started as a small hunt pack of six couple at the end of 2007 and have grown to a pack of fifteen and a half hunting couple at present.We keep the club small, having only three adults and two kids involved.Richie & Syd have hunted 5 or 6 seasons on foot with the Old Mill Foxhounds, a well respected and hard pack to keep into during their foot hunting years, when they went mounted we felt we wanted to form our own foot pack as we missed this type of hunting, Syd whipped into Bernard McCoy huntsman of the Old Mill pack for two seasons. Terrierman Mike Barry also worked terriers for same pack. Mike is also a keen Lurcher man, and has ridden to a mounted pack also.
Mike barry: Best terrier man by far, and his two apprentices Conor Roche & Graham mccoy.

We hunt mostly Sundays as we have regular jobs to hold down, we start at ten o'clock sharp, anyone is welcome to come see us hunt. 2008/09 was by far our best season, late 09/10 was poor enough as the bitter winter slowed up hunting, even keeping us indoors on two meets. Thanks for looking.
