Cork Federation News Sennen Cove

Cork Area News

Sennen Cove has always a funny race to the fanciers of cork the first birds always seem to do a decent velocity with the rest of the results being filled over the course of the day and in some instances the following morning the 2015 race was no different in this case as the national winning pigeon was timed in mallow by Martin Shiells and a big well done to him.

Thomas Crean

 The first federation pigeon arrived to the Bishopstown loft of Dave Nagle. Dave who is no stranger to success previously being second IHUNFC from Talbenny timed his cheq hen at 12:42 to take 1st open 1st section cork federation 1st club Cork Southern and 2nd open 2nd south section INFC  so we hope it will be third time lucky for him shortly the hen is a Soontjen Busscheart cross.

Second fed went to the loft of Thomas Crean & Son whose blue hen was injured after the first race she was again lightly trained up before being put to the race and she paid dividend by winning 2nd open 1st north section and 1st club.
