When I was at the Northwest German Roller Canary Club show, Almin had a stack of these German bird magazines that anyone could take with them. Seeing the Irish Fancy on the cover, I knew this one was meant specially for me! To my delight, some of these Irish Fancy articles were in English!

The Irish Fancy Canary Club of America was founded in 2009 by Brian Byrne and Paul Cruise. They imported 12 pairs of Irish Fancy from Maurice O'Conner of Birmingham, England. ( M. O'Conner won best champion adult, second best champion, second best adult, best champion adult.) In the US, the impressive offspring from birds that Brian and Paul imported have been shown at several local shows usually placing in the type division winners and also placing well at the National Cage Bird Show the past two years.
