The Irish Setter (also known as the Red Setter) belongs to the Sporting Gundog Group and were originally used as hunting dogs. Originating from spaniels, pointers and other setters sometime in the 1700s, the original dogs were red and white. The first Irish Red Setter club was founded in Dublin Ireland in 1885 and the AKC recognised the breed in 1878.
