EAST DOWN COMBINE

Bangor Partnership Have Top Two From Classic

 

The Joe Ringland Skibbereen Classic was due to be flown on Saturday the 13th of May but the weather again made the Saturday unsuitable for a liberation but they were away at 8am into a S.W. wind on Sunday morning and Skibbereen in a South Westerly has a tendency to produce a very fast race and Sunday’s Classic was no exception with the top 7 birds recording velocities over 2000ypm with the winning pigeon on 2023 which is just short of 70 mph for the 260 mile trip.

The Bangor partnership of Jim Burgess & Danny Brennan had a great race winning 1st ,2nd & 7th Open 1st ,2nd & 4th East section with a 4th bird at 18th East Section . The partnership’s winning bird now named “Rosie” is a 2yo Blue Cheq Pied hen, a Lambrecht and is one of a number of birds the partnership obtained from Reid Bros & McCloy. Sent sitting eggs 10 days this was only her second race of the year, her first race having been from Thurles when she was 2nd Club. Last year she was raced although a latebred and this season has reared 2 young birds and is paired to the black w/f cock which was 7th open from Skibbereen ,also a 2 year old and is also from Reid Bros & McCloy and was 9th Open in the 4th old Bird race last year . The pigeon at 2nd open from Skibbereen is a blue w/f cock also a 2yo latebred and comes from the Armagh partnership of DC & P McArdle and he also went to Skibbereen sitting eggs 10days and he has always been a steady racer .

3rd & 4th open are the first two West section birds, Hillfoot’s A Cousins & sons are 3rd open and B Hogg & Sons are in 4th place .It is then back to Bangor for 5th open 3rd East Section which was to Reggie Moore & Son who had another great race with birds also winning 11th ,12th ,18th ,21st & 22nd Open , 5th ,6th ,9th ,10th ,11th East section respectively with two further birds at 19th and 20th East section .

6th open 3rd West section was Mark Foulis of Dundonald who also had a great race with futher birds at 9th ,17th and 37th Open .Staying with Dundonald Cowan & McCartney were in 8th open and Ballylesson’s K & B McConaghie & son complete the top ten in the open.
