THIRTY years' guardianship by gamekeeper Ian Chapman of the stunning Dundarave Estate at Bushmills have been honoured with a major accolade from The Great Game Fairs of Ireland.
Ian's career at Dundarave started 1987 when he was appointed by Sir Patrick NcNaughten to act as gamekeeper for the 1,300 acres estate.
He had planned to spend just a few seasons in Northern Ireland, before returning to his original home in England, but he fell in love both with a local girl and the County Antrim locality. Thirty years on, he still manages the estate, now working for Randox Laboratories which purchased Dundarave in December 2014.
