Club Notes – Winter 2019
As the year draws to a close, we held our annual dinner and awards night on Friday 1st of November in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore. The night was a huge success with a crowd of 150 sitting down to enjoy a lovely meal. A huge array of prizes was presented by outgoing chair of the club, Helen Kelly for herd’s competition, quality milk and stock judging competitions. Helen also reflected on the year and thanked the Gill, Minnock and Kelly families for hosting field evenings throughout the summer and all the sponsors of the various events. She also thanked Peter Kennelly “Akeragh” and Michael McNamara “Barna” for judging the club herds competition and everyone who helped out in driving the judges.
Helen congratulated Richard Hamilton on receiving the YMA Hall of Fame award. The Club also made a presentation to Richard in recognition of his contribution to education and his unstinting help to YMA in the club and nationally at Gurteen College. Gurteen also hosted the YMA weekend rally at the college on 2nd November where 47 young members attended.
Congratulations were also extended to Tommy Finlay on a very successful show at Tullamore.Tommy is In charge of the dairy section since the show started along with stewards drawn mainly from the club.
The results of the various competitions are available on the club’s facebook page and website.
Wishing all our members and all dairy farmers the very best for the rest of this year and into 2020
