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.

In Memoriam


Georgina was a lifetime staunch supporter of the GCCFI and a member of SABBCI. She had been until recent years a unique and most successful breeder of Siamese cats in Ireland, with wonderful breed lines, which led to great successes in shows across the country and in the UK.


As the Treasurer of SABBCI for many years, Georgina, whose lifetime experience with financial matters gained from her career as Chief Accountant in Guinnesses' Brewery, had oversight of the club's finances. She saw to it that all our financial affairs were properly conducted and kept in good order, thereby ensuring that we always had funds in hands to enable us to put on our Cat Shows.


Geogina's other interests included the activities of the Fine Gael party in her local area of Dun laoghaire and the British Legion. Her father had served in the RAF during the War and Georgina was a loyal supporter of the Legion's commemorative events.

I am sorry to hear the GCCFI and SABCCI have lost such a staunch supporter. Mrs. Goodison sounds like a wonderful person who led a very full and busy life, with the love of cats at the centre of it. Sincere condolences to her family and friends.
