EAST DOWN COMBINE

with Clifford Browne

 

A. Cousins & sons 1st open 1st Fermoy

Saturday April 29th saw the East Down Combine in Fermoy for the first of two races from there and with a SE wind another fast race was on the cards. Liberation took place at 8.30am and the early birds were again to the Westerly clubs in the Combine with the Hillfoot partnership of Albert Cousins and sons out in front on 1826 ypm. 2nd open was last week’s open winning fancier John Patterson, never far from the top. Next two were to Newtownbreda fancier Jim Tumelty with Jim Young and Ptnrs of Dundonald 5th open and the top six was completed by John Patterson’s next bird .

All these were to the lofts in the West Section in fact the top 19 birds in the Open were to West Section lofts with the first East Section bird at 20th open being to the Millisle club lofts of R Strain & Son and this bird is a 3yr old hen on roundabout and is a Geerinchx from birds bought from Foxwood lofts in 2013 .R Strain & son were 1st and 2nd Millisle from Fermoy the 2nd bird is also a Geerinchx from the same source. Annsborough’s Mickey Croskery was 2nd East Section with Killyleagh’s Herbie McVeigh in 3rd Section.

This week’s race is from Mallow and this is also the EDC 2 bird Gold ring event . The full Open and Section result from Fermoy is:
