Charleville Show 2022

The Charleville Show was held on Saturday 25th June. The annual show was held on their own showgrounds as usual and saw a large entry of Hereford cattle – the largest entry of cattle across all breeders.

Judges;

Back to the showring to judge after the enforced halt caused by covid-19 was Mr. John Holloway from Gageboro Herefords. Mr. Holloway judged the cattle classes with great detail and spoke at the end to describe his deliberations. Mr. Conor O’Leary was also drafted in for the day to judge the Young Handler classes. Maybe the toughest job of the day but Mr. O’Leary was very fair with the young handlers and gave the very talented groups a good chance to show off their skills

Classes & Championships;

The Muster Hereford branch hosted the Munster Hereford Heifer of the year 2022 and the Munster Hereford Bull of the year 2022 Championships at the show in place of the points based championship that was ran in previous years.

In total there were 16 Hereford classes on the day including the championships and two stand alone young handler classes which saw over 15 young people participating.

The Breeders Choice 4* & 5* Star heifer class was also held on the day & Michael O’Keeffe won 1st prize after also winning 1st prize at Cork Summer Show the previous week.

Ringfort 1 Herefords topped the rosette count!

There was great success for one breeder in particular at Charleville show; Neil Twomey of Ringfort 1 Herefords. Neil had an arm full of rosettes and trophies going home when his Herefords won; Reserve Overall Champion, Munster Hereford Heifer of the Year, Female Champion, Munster Hereford Bull of the Year, Reserve Male Champion and 1st prize in all three classes entered initially.
