It is with regret that we announce that the Midland Cat Club has been disbanded due to lack of experienced personnel to take on Officer roles and a shortage of finances. However, the GCCFI will run a show on 18th February 2024 in Thurles. Watch out for details.




First Bronze Invictus Winner


The joint shows in Ballinteer on Sunday 16th April produced our very first Invictus winner when Supreme Hibernian Grand Premier Silverfern French Kiss owned by Claudia Wagner became an Invictus Bronze.

Congratulations to them both.

British Long Hair


British Longhair variants, (shorthaired cats with a BLH parent, can now be shown in the equivalent BSH classes as they are identical to BSH who carried a gene for longhair, and all will be judged by the BSH SOP for quality. It is hoped that this will be possible from the Midland shows but is dependant on the IT system being ready.

Many of you will know that Betty Dobbs officially retired as Registrar last year. She has kindly continued while we investigated our options. After a lot of research and discussion the Executive recommended to Council that we should contract out our registrations and related matters to the GCCF to undertake on our behalf. This has been approved by Council and the transfer will take place within the next few months.


The GCCF will be able to provide an on line service and they will send out registration and transfer documents with our logo from the UK. Arrangements will be made for those without on line access to forward their paperwork and payment to a Council member in Ireland. Those using the on line service will be able to access their cat(s) details and make some updates. In order to help with the costs we will be charging an administrative fee of €6.00 per litter in addition to the registration fee. This only applies to registrations.


Please watch this space for further details as they become available.
