Well known Kilcummin sheepdog handler Tom O’Sullivan has come out on top in one of the most prestigious trials in the world.

Tom and his border collie 'North Hill Tess' have been declared the winners of the famous BBC show, ‘One man and his dog’.

Tom is no stranger to success; he won last year’s International Supreme Championships in Aberystwyth in Wales.

This international competition earned him an invite to compete in ‘One man and his Dog’, a competition he describes as “the TV programme that everyone associates with sheepdog trialling”.

“I’m delighted with the win. There is a lot of luck involved but Tess was on form and worked exceptionally well,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

“It was an honour to represent Ireland and bring the trophy back to Kilcummin. We spend a lot of time training for these sort of events so it's great that days like this make it all worthwhile. We’re delighted with the feedback and congratulations all week. It's very much appreciated.”

The popular TV show was first aired by the BBC in 1976 and continues today as a special annual episode of Countryfile.

Although recorded last month on a farm in north Wales, the final was aired last Sunday evening and watched by millions of viewers.
