Northern California Irish Wolfhound Club

NCIWC is dedicated to promoting the continued well being and preservation of  Irish Wolfhounds by example and education. NCIWC  sponsors many activities for this purpose. The activities range from specialties and matches to beach walks and public events, such as Celtic festivals and parades.

Board meetings are held four times per year. An annual general membership meeting is held in June each year.  Members and guests are invited to attend; however, only board members may vote on business.

It’s not too early to put next year’s specialties on  your calendar… October 14, 15, 16, 2022, Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodland, CA. (new location, back to our original dates)


Congratulations to the NCIWC St. Patrick’s Day Parade participants!  The United Irish Societies has once again awarded them a First Place award in the 171st running of St. Patrick’s Day Parade in San Francisco.  Along with this honor comes a check for $200 for the club.  Thank you Tom Bourdon for organizing the wolfhounds again this year.  And thank you Junko Ishihara and Carol Gabriel for coordinating parade activities out on the street, and Ken Gabriel for driving the support vehicle who follows our parade unit in case of trouble!
