The objectives of this club shall be:
a) to educate the public on the value of the Irish Red and White Setter.

c) to encourage the organization of independent local Irish Red and White Setter Specialty clubs in those localities where there are sufficient fanciers of the breed to meet the requirements of the American Kennel Club.
d) to urge members and breeders to accept the standard of the breed as approved by the Irish Red and White Setter Association of America and the American Kennel Club as the only standard of excellence by which Irish Red and White Setters shall be judged.
e) to do all in its power to protect and advance the interests of the breed and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows, field trails, hunt tests, obedience trails and other events.
f) to conduct sanctioned matches and specialty shows, field trails, hunt tests and other events under the Rules and Regulations of the American Kennel Club.
