EAST DOWN COMBINE

with Clifford Browne

Another 1st Open For John Patterson .

The East Down Combine were in Mallow in Co Cork on the 6th of May and whilst we were basking in lovely sunny weather in the South West Corner of Ireland it was not so good ,in fact it was unsuitable for a liberation and the birds were held until the next day the 7th when they were away at 10am into a light NE wind and again this kept velocities down to the 1300’s .

For the 2nd time in three races the open winner was to Ballylesson’s John Patterson . What can we say about this super fancier which has not already been said many time over the years ,surely one of the most consistent lofts in the Combine over many ,many years.As well as winning the open from Mallow he also takes 21st open ,1st,7th ,13th & 17th in the West section -another great result for John.

In 2nd open 2nd West section is John Patterson’s great friend Ronnie Johnston (Irish Rover) and he is really enjoying his pigeons and they are performing very well taking the top 6 places in the Comber Social club from Mallow.

At 3rd open and the East section winner it is Clougheys Gordon Bros & sons whose winner is a dark cheq cock which already this season has won 4th sect 10th open NIPA Tullamore from 22,000 birds, and as a Yb he won 13th open Thurles, 24th open Tullamore, 29th open Skibbereen, his breeding is van den Bulck x Wynant and this cocks two brothers also Wynants breeding were 12th &13th open from Mallow .The Gordons who once again are having an exceptional season were also 22nd ,23rd & 27th open .

The next four places in the open 4th ,5th ,6th & 7th were to Bangor’s Father & son team of Reggie & David Moore who have a 5th bird at 38th open and in the East section are 2nd,3rd ,4th & 5th . This is another loft enjoying a fantastic season .

The full open and Section result was :
