The Federation Cynologique International have declined our request to award CACITs (the award for International Working Champion) at the Championship as it is not taking place in a member country.
The Irish Kennel Club have changed their insurer and post Brexit they are stating their cover does not apply in England.
"As a result the IRSC decided at its would be prudent to cancel the event this year.
I wish to apologise to anyone who was intending to come to the event but despite making every effort to get all the arrangements in place in good time, we cannot resolve the issues that are outside of our control in a reasonable timeframe.
President of the IRSC".
