Honorary Life Members

Dear Jill,

Firstly i would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work and knowledge regarding our wonderful breed, the Great Dane. To have a soul such as yourself safeguarding our beautiful dogs brings hope that we can continue to educate and enlighten those who may not be as knowledgeable. You are truly an inspiration to us all .

As the new secretary for the GDAI, I take great pleasure in informing you that you were proposed to become an Honorary lifetime Member of the GDAI by your good friend Maria Gkinala, and the proposal was passed unanimously at our AGM on sunday 9th July 2017.


I look forward to having your wisdom and knowledge flowing throughout our association and that with your help we can all safe guard our wonderful breed for the future.

Kindest Regards,

Hon Sec GDAI

Sonya Fennelly-McGrath

Dear Sonya Fennelly-McGrath, Hon Sec GDAI,

May I apologise for this late response (because pf a problem with my email) to the wonderful news that I have been honoured with a Lifetime Membership in the Great Dane Association of Ireland? Thank you all so much for this privilege which I think is much more deserved by Maria Gkinala than by me, although I accept it with the greatest of pleasure as a marvellous ninetieth birthday present.

I must congratulate all of you in founding and developing this forward-looking group to protect our beloved breed, educating fanciers, and getting the appropriate recognition from the Irish KC. All the best for future endeavours.

Very sincerely,
Jill Evans

Many Congratulations Jill
