Kate Bride, President
Club de l'Epagneul Breton of Ireland

We sadly report that Kate passed away on October 17, 2003. Kate was a true friend and mentor to this association and a personal friend to many of us. She was a great friend of the breed, being very involved in her country's parent club, as a breeder herself and as a show and field trial judge. She was in fact scheduled to judge the Epagneul Breton breed at Crufts in 2005.

Kate became a friend prior to this club's existence and continued on with her advice and her support of our club's efforts throughout the years. Kate was our very special guest at our National 2002 meeting and honored us by judging our very first Epagneul Breton National Specialty as well as judging the Natural Ability Test (TAN).
She donated a trophy to the club which we had re-designed into a perpetual trophy, the Pairknaglos Trophy, to be awarded each year to the National Best of Breed winner. Her memory will continue through the years with each name added to that trophy and we will truly miss her and that Irish twinkle.
