Below are graphic links to early dog shows in Ireland (27/03/1924, 23/02/1927, 9/05/1932, 25/03/1940 ). For the 1924 show the clip gives no names, but the clip for the 1927 show informs us that "Mrs. J.J. Walt's (may be J J Walsh) Irish Wolfhound 'Finn' receives the premier award". Click each of the images to view the newsreal clip for each year. We have also found Deerhound in the newsreels and will add them as we find more.
