NIPA Report by HOMER - 04-05-21

NIPA Report by HOMER

With poor weather forecast for later on Saturday, all organizations released a bit earlier than usual, the NIPA with over 24,000 birds in the convoy liberated in Roscrea at 9.30am in an Easterly wind and by all accounts had an excellent race and full returns for most lofts. Keith Allister winning the Monaghan HPS for the second week finished 1st Sect E and 1st Open NIPA recording velocity 1605 just ahead of three very good birds for R Parkes & Son from Armagh. I had a word with the delighted 1st Open winner Keith Allister. The open winner a 2year old blue cock flies on the roundabout system, very little training is given due to the birds of prey problems we are having, Plenty of loft flying seems to be enough for them, but they must go every week. His breeding is Herman Ceusters, both his parents were bred by Alan Devlin in Cumbria. He is half-brother to one of my 1st Section winners in 2019. He has been a very steady performer scoring well on different occasions.
