Club Notes – Winter 2018
The Club would like to sincerely thank the generosity and time that each member and host family provided throughout the year to enable the Club host various events and Field Evenings. Without their time, effort and assistance the events would not be held. In addition, the time and expertise kindly given by the Judges for both Field Evenings and the Herds Competition is truly appreciated.
We had three field evenings again this year, which were greatly supported. Many thanks to each of the families who hosted the evenings and provided the opportunity for their herds to be viewed and judged each evening.
This year the Family Awards night was held in Piltown, County Kilkenny. The large crowd in attendance was certainly a testament to the high quality of stock which the farm is known for.
A big thanks to all our sponsors who supported the club and our host family.
The local shows from Clonmel, Ossary Show, Tullow Show, Tinahealy Show, were well supported by club members this year, with a bigger than usual turn out than usual at some of the shows. It was great to see so many taking part, particularly where the long spell of dry weather had an adverse impact on grass growth.
A special thank you to our photographer, who very kindly volunteers his time, and expertise, as photographer at many club events throughout the year. In particular, Roger provides his expertise and time to both the Local YMA and at the Awards Night which is greatly appreciated.
We wish all members and their families a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
