Irish Red and White Setter - Guide to Irish Red and White Setters

Description: Although the Irish Red and White Setter is one of the newest breeds to be recognized by the American Kennel Club, it has a long history in Ireland which dates back to the 17th century where it was as a versatile gundog and companion. There are two types of Setters, the Irish and the Red and White, with the latter believed to be the older of the two.
