Club Notes – Winter 2018

Quiz
Events for Breffni-Oriel kicked off in January with our table quiz which was held in Cavan rugby club. Thanks to all who supported the night by taking part or donating spot prizes, it was very much appreciated.
 
Day Trip
Our annual day trip took place in April  and we travelled to the farm of Charles Mc Candless in Donegal. Everyone marvelled at the fine stock and the spotless condition in which the farm is kept. We went from there to Doagh famine village where we were treated to an afternoon of Irish history and heritage.
 
Field Evenings
Our field evenings this year were hosted by Seamus Shannon, Bert Stewart, and Sandy Moore. Thank you to all three familys for presenting such great evenings. Thanks to the guest judges for taking time out to take part.  Our charity auction took place with Sandy on the final evening and was greatly supported, again a big thank you to all who contributed spot prizes and to our auctioneer on the night. After a hotly contested three rounds here are the overall winners of the stock judging.
