  • All about us

    Hi, My name is Jenny Haslett. My partner Simon & I live in Co. Clare, Ireland with our children - Molly, & Solomon. We share our lives with our Pyrenean Mountain Dogs.


    History of Galliagh Pyreneans

    I have loved & lived with Pyrs since 1967 (I was 3 yrs old then!) when my Mum brought home our first Pyr - Hamarani de Bedous. Since then the family has always been part of "Pyrdom". From as early as I can remember, I've been at shows, fun days & seminars.

    The name "GALLIAGH" was chosen by my Mum & Dad - Ann & Alec Haslett, because the cottage in which my Grandparents lived in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, was called Galliagh, & is situated near a lake called Lough Galliagh.

    In 1975 I took part in the UK finals of the Dog Centre Junior Handling (now J.H.A). I got in the final 10, which was a great achievement with a Pyr! When I was sixteen I took part in the first PMDC of GB Breed Club judging course & was accepted onto the Breed's judging list. My first judging appointment was at Southampton Show, England, when I was seventeen. My mum died in 1988. My Dad & I continued what she'd started. I'm sure she'd be very proud of the Galliaghs today.
    We have travelled to the Pyrenees many times & have seen 100's of Pyrs in their native land; working on the mountain slopes, in the top French kennels & at shows. We occasionally breed a litter, with type, temperament & soundness of prime importance. We have incorporated French lines to increase our gene pool & ensure we keep the true Pyrenean type & character. "Monty" (Rejaumont Galliagh of Nauvoo) arrived here from France in July 2001. He came from Mavis Taylor, who lives in the Loire region of France. He is a combination of "Du Grand Baou" & "Douceur Angevine" lines, with a bit of Galliagh in there too!  Since then we have imported Tancouet of Nauvoo in 2003. We have also imported from France (September 2008) a lovely girl called Vixen du Pic de Viscos . In 2012, Galinette Cendree du Domaine de la Dou arrived, from France, bred by Nelly Buffard. We hope to have a litter from her & Sliabhgamh Vailintin - winter 2013/14.

    In May 2006 my Dad - Alec Haslett died. His soulmate & protector - Pyrenmount Ivan's Bluebell was lost without him, & kept "waiting" for him to come home, still checking out his bedroom to see if he'd come back. Finally, on 2nd January 2007, she went to meet him at the Rainbow Bridge, aged 13.

    In 1999 all the dedication was recognised, when at Crufts, Galliagh Nistos (Raja) was awarded the Dog C.C. & Best of Breed by Breed specialist judge - Mrs Eunice Meredith. Raja's sister Galliagh Navarra also won Best Special Junior Bitch & Best Special Yearling Bitch.
