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.
