Sad news received today from Lesley Armstrong-Rodgers & Peter Armstrong
to report the sudden death of Brenda Levick on 25th January
Our sincere condolences to Brenda's family (See notice HERE)

Brenda's funeral service was held at Kirton Holy Trinity Church, Kirton, Nottinghamshire NG22 9LU,
on Friday 16th February at 1.00pm

Below I thought I would share an extract from a profile I first published in 2007 on this website

Brenda with Sh Ch Corriecas Fagan - Winning Reserve Best In Show at Crufts 1983
His 3rd CC
Judge: Mr Parkinson

Fagan was born in June 1976, by Sh Ch Corriecas Baron out of Corriecas Marshall. Both parents were home bred. Corriecas Marshall was by Sh Ch Cornevon Lovebird out of Corriecas Desdemona. Fagan won his first CC in September 1982 and another in October 1982. Then came Crufts in February 1983. Brenda recalls that incredible day. “In all the excitement of this event I thought how wonderful it would be if Fagan won his third CC, to make him a show champion,” she said “Winning the open class was an achievement in itself, as the competition was intense. “Best of Breed came as a bonus and a great surprise. What a thrill it was to hear the loud applause from my fellow exhibitors – to have their approval, as it were, for Fagan to be the ambassador of our lovely breed in the Gundog Group. “Winning the group came as a complete shock – I was elated but could not really grasp the significance of it – that Fagan was to be considered for BIS at Crufts. “Running Fagan into the big ring with the other five dogs is a misty memory – all I remember thinking was ‘this is like an endurance test’ (for me, not for the dog)! “Mr Parkinson made his decision quickly, but before the moment he made the Afghan BIS I was seized with optimism as he strode over to Fagan for a last look. “I glanced at my noble Irish, continuing to show his socks off the whole time – what a showman! “I managed to stay calm when they announced the Irish Setter RBIS – after that I was in a dreamlike state of being shocked and stunned. “The reality of it became evident when the photographers rushed into the ring, like fans on a football field, swarming around – flash, flash! Smile! Look at the dog! Hold his tail! This seemed to go on for ever. “It is something I will remember for the rest of my life. My home-bred dog had become RBIS at Crufts! Would I take an open cheque for him? One look at Fagan and money could not buy him – he was my champion, my companion and my friend. The click, click of the cameras never perturbed him – he carried on lashing his tail and enjoying every minute of his success.”

Brenda’s Corriecas kennel was established in 1963. The affix is derived from a gully in the Cairngorm Mountains where Brenda, whilst on a skiing holiday, saw an Irish Setter for the first time. The basic Corriecas bloodline stemmed from Raycroft/Hartsbourne/Brendower stock.


Brenda’s foundation dog and bitch were
Acornbank Buccaneer (born 1963),
by Sh Ch Brackenfield Hartsbourne Bronze
out of Raycroft Bayford, and Brendower Kontessa,
by Brendower Bronze out of Echo of Myre.
Put together, they produced Corriecas Desdemona
and Corriecas Sheba who, in 1969, when
mated to Sh Ch Wendover Gentleman,
produced Sh Ch Corriecas Baron.

Acornbank Buccaneer (Born 1963)

Corriecas Desdemona

Sh Ch Corriecas Baron

Baron won his first CC, best of breed, group and reserve best in show at Manchester in 1972. In all he won three Gundog Groups. “Baron was beautifully proportioned, well co-ordinated, with lots of showmanship,” says Brenda. “Among his progeny were:

Sh Ch Corriecas Fagan, Corriecas Jamie, Sh Ch Raycroft Bo’sun, Irish Champion Corriecas Zavier and numerous championship show winning dogs.”

                                       Brenda's First Championship Show Appointment

Brenda first gave CC's at Leicester in 1974, when she awarded the dog CC to Fearnley Firespark and the bitch CC to Sh Ch Marrona Meriel. Since then she has awarded CCs many time, and had the honour of judging bitches at Crufts in 1982. Brenda is an international judge and has judged at numerous championship shows abroad, including in Ireland, Sweden, Belgium, Malta and Germany, and she judged at the very first gundog show of the Association for Hunting and Conservation in Malta.
