As its name already suggests, this lively setter originated in Ireland where native pointers were crossed with red and white spaniels imported from France. Again on the occasion of the 1874 exhibition in Dublin, red and white/red animals could be admired, noted separately in two categories. For reasons of fashion, the Irish setter initially of a massive type could be refined and it was only bred with the mahogany red fur. He is a passionate pointer with a good nose, speed and stamina who points and brings flawlessly.
