This section includes those magazines and periodicals that feature significant articles on the Kerry Blue Terrier or that feature the Kerry on the cover. Publications that include casual mention, advertisements, win reports, or breed columns are not included since the list would become unwieldy. This list is certainly far from complete, however it does represent a good cross section of this type material. Additions are welcome. Bob Nazak
