Irish Wolfhound Links

from Alley Cat Scratch

These link are what I feel are some of  the best sites for Irish Wolfhound  information, resources, pictures and/or detailed link pages.  While these links all feature our Gentle Giants, they do not do not cover all Irish Wolfhound resources on the web.  These are from all over the world and they are just a start for you. There are hours of exploring here and in the links from the sites.
