OSSORY SHOW

Judge: Mr. David Larkin, The Hermitage, Kilcormac, Co. Offaly

Kilsunny Herefords completed a rare double at the annual Ossory Show, winning both the supreme and reserve supreme championship titles. Not stopping there, the Kilsunny herd also claimed the overall junior title and collected four 1st prizes on the day.

Supreme Hereford Champion: Kilsunny Lass Melissa, Trevor Dudley, Kilsunny Hse, Dovea, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Kilsunny Lass Melissa is the latest addition to a long line of prize-winning females from the Lass family at Kilsunny. Melissa is a full sister to Kilsunny Lleyton who took the reserve supreme male championship at the 2015 National Hereford Calf Show and was exported to Northern Ireland for pedigree breeding.

Reserve Supreme Hereford Champion & Overall Junior Champion: Kilsunny Nicholas, Trevor Dudley, Kilsunny Hse, Dovea, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Kilsunny Nicholas is no stranger to championship success, having previously been awarded the Reserve Bull Calf Champion title at the Slaney Foods International Finals at Gorey Show last month.

Reserve Junior Champion: Herberry Lucy-Lou, Veronica Brennan & Ray Hunt, c/o Herberry Herefords, Ballyherberry, Dualla, Co. Tipperary.

Herberry Lucy-Lou is a daughter of the two-time 1st prize winner at the National Hereford Show, Gouldingpoll 1 Lucy 641 and this young calf beat out many older bull and heifer calves to take the reserve junior title at Ossory.

Gorey Agricultural Show

This year the Gorey show held its 158th event with prize money running to an impressive €2,500 thanks to the kind sponsorship of Slaney Foods International and the Gorey Agricultural Show Society.

The quality of the Hereford animals on show seemed to attract a lot of attention from spectators, with many of them eager to take part in the Stock Judging competition.

Robin Irvine had the tedious task of judging on the day, with his selection of winners as follows.

Kilsunny Lass Matilda continues her winning streak as she took the championship, bred by Trevor Dudley.

Reserve Champion and Junior Bull Calf Champion was Knockmountagh Virgil 3 exhibited by Eamon & John McKiernan, Co. Louth, with the Kilsunny herd picking up another prize on the day when Kilsunny Nicholas secured Reserve Junior Bull Calf Champion.

Local man John Jones who was ring steward for the event had a very successful day as he won first, second and fourth in the Junior Female line-up. It was Clonroe Fairy that won Junior Female Champion and her sister Clonroe Elsie 2 who claimed Reserve Champion, both sired by Baltymore Ginger.

IHBS Chairman Willie Branagan awards Eamon McKiernan his prize for winning the Stock Judging Competition. Eamon was the only person to correctly grade each animal in the same order as the judge.

We were privileged to have the President of the New Zealand Hereford Association, Philip Barnett attend the show. He was very impressed with the quality of the cattle on display and how the event itself was run.
