IWITThe Irish Wolfhound Mailing Lists

These mailing lists are "places" on the internet that are gatherings of Irish Wolfhound fanciers and those who would like to know more about Irish Wolfhounds and Irish Wolfhound issues. The lists are populated by people from all over the world, and from every walk of life, and every level of experience with Irish Wolfhounds. Some individuals have subscribed to all three lists, others only to one or two, as their preferences and time allow. Descriptions of the 3 lists below are in chronological order of the appearance of the lists on the internet.

For all mailing lists, please keep the welcome message that is sent to you when you join. It contains information that is valuable in helping you to manage your own list subscription.
