    The portrait proporting to be of Hugh O'Neill in this lot is actually of Justin of Nassau or Justinus van Nassau, who was the only extramarital child of William the Silent. The subject in the painting, on which the portrait in this lot is based, continues to be incorrectly identified as Hugh O'Neill., who is unlikely ever to have worn a Dutch lace collar.

  • A white metal collar engraved 'Garryowen - The Champion - Irish Red Setter - Owner, JJ Giltrup' suspended with 23 white metal discs, each engraved with one of Garryowen's show honours. Worn by Garryowen at the Dog Show held at the Royal Zoological Society in Dublin in August 1884, where he won first prize in the champion class of Irish Setter dogs.
    Garryowen was born in 1876, bred by H S Moore of Dublin, sired by Champion Palmerston out of Champion Belle. He was owned by James J Giltrap, a law agent. From his first entry in a dog show, he won prizes. The Chicago Tribune, 22 February 1890 wrote about his show career: 'Champion Garryowen [was] the hero of every bench show in Europe until his death two years ago. Garryowen never had a rival worthy of the name. His record in brief is thirty-seven firsts, both champion and challenge prizes. He won the Grand Prix de Honeur of the Belgian Kennel Club as the best of 978 sporting dogs of all breeds, including five champions, eighty first-prize, forty-two second-prize, and fifteen third-prize winners, at Antwerp in 1884.' Garryowen now appears in the extended pedigree of nearly every Irish Setter anywhere in the world. Garryowen's portrait was commissioned by Col. J.K. Millner, from William Osborne RHA and is in the collection of the National Gallery of Ireland. JJ Giltrap was James Joyce's great-uncle. Joyce's Ulysses mentions Garryowen in three of the episodes ('Cyclops', 'Nausicaa', and 'Circe'): ".. famous old Irish Red Setter Wolfdog formerly known by the sobriquet of Garryowen"; "Old Garryowen started growling again at Bloom that was skeezing round the door"; "old Giltrap's dog and getting fed up by the ratepayers and corporators"; "Giltrap's lovely dog Garryowen that almost talked it was so human". Spillane's was a well-known Limerick family of tobacco manufacturers established in 1829 who named its Plug tobacco after the famous dog. The logo for the brand shows him resplendent in the collar decorated with some of his prize medals. Large metal advertising signs featuring the logo and the words 'Smoke Garryowen Plug it satisfies' were a familiar sight all over Ireland. See also Lots 145-147
