Neil Hannon
The Beagle Club has been saddened to hear that Neil Hannon, a Vice President of the club has sadly passed away. Neil and his wife Mary kept Beagles for many years and while they did show their hounds it was the working Beagle that most interested Neil.
He was the Field Master of The Beagle Club Working Section in a long and successful tenure during what I would describe as its heyday. The meetings were always very well attended and very well organised and run. They were fun meetings and there was always a sumptuous tea afterwards while everyone thawed out. Neil’s hounds were always very successful at the Working Section meets as well and his Valedown Minstrel Boy aka ‘Bill’ won no less than 14 working certificates, still a record to this day. Bill always used to lead the field, often with his great chum Gerry Meek’s Perrystar Voyager both speaking loudly to the trail they were following. A wonderful spectacle.  
Many will also remember him as one of the bowler hatted stewards of the parade of working packs at Houndshow along with myself and Andrew Smalley.  Neil was a real gentleman and was always quick to welcome newcomers and encourage them and their hounds. The Beagle world has lost an enthusiastic and genuine hound man and we send our best wishes and condolences to his wife Mary and his family and friends. Happy hunting Neil

Although Beagles had been used for several centuries for hunting in Southern Europe and Britain, it was not until the late 19th century they were exhibited at dog shows in this country. However, there was no organisation for either of these activities, so in 1890 The Beagle Club was formed to promote the breeding of Beagles for sport and show purposes. In 1891 the Association Masters of Harriers and Beagles was formed to regulate hunting activities.
