The East Down Combine were back in Tullamore for the 2nd race of the season from there on Saturday April 20th and it turned out to be a beautiful day for a race once the mist and fog burnt off and with what little wind there was being light and variable the birds enjoyed a beautiful fly home .Liberated at 11.30 am it was Gordon Bros & sons who were this week’s Open winners through their entry with the Killyleagh Central club and then to follow this up they were 2nd open through their first bird with the Cloughey club and then to complete a fabulous result had a further 18 birds in the open result and took all but 4 places in the East Section result . Niall has kindly furnished me with information on the winning birds . 1st and 2nd open were two hens
