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.

Latest Registration News

Posted on 6th July, 2017

Two members of the Executive recently visited the GCCF office in Bridgwater to see the new system being built for GCCFI and to receive training in its use. We had the opportunity to practice with live data. We identified some problems which had occurred in the copying over of data from our old database on to the new system and some of these were rectified while we were there. This is inevitable in copying data from an old system on to an up to the minute one.


Following our visit three Executive members have been sent a test database by the GCCF and we are testing it at present. In order to get the information as accurate as possible this is taking longer than we had anticipated. It is not possible for us to test live data so GCCF have to transfer it on to the test database for us. As soon as we are satisfied with the information and the use of the database we will be in a position for it to go live for everyone. We would anticipate, allowing for holidays, that this will be in September.


We hope that as many as possible will use the on line service. One advantage, apart from speed, is that names should be correct as there won’t be handwriting for the in putter to read. You will also be able to pay on line. Further news will be published as soon as it is available.
