2018/2019 Season

A typical day

You’re normally on your pegs around 9.30 am, having met for a briefing and to draw pegs earlier that morning. A typical day produces a mixed bag of around 300 birds, shooting pheasants, partridges and duck. Elevenses are served in the field between drives, and lunch is taken back at Keeper’s Cottage midway through the day, though it is also possible to shoot through and lunch later in the day.

With Shannon airport just 30 minutes away, John can make arrangements for those flying in and out on the same day.

About the host

John Forde’s life in fieldsports began when he became involved in gundog fieldtrials, something that saw him take his dogs picking up on the private shoots across Ireland. From there he became involved in the burgeoning syndicate shooting industry. He began to build Mulberry Shoot about five years ago and it has gone from strength to strength. He’s tremendously proud of his work, coaxing a shoot out of nothing in the wilds of western Ireland. He’s a living embodiment of the term ‘Irish Hospitality, and Margaret and John love hosting teams of guns from around the world, taking pride in offering a warm welcome and showing their guests a memorable day of challenging driven shooting.
