August 20th saw the 57th running of the Annual Cappamore Show. This was the first time in the history of the show that it was held on a Saturday. The sun shone as crowds swelled the Portnard venue.

The cattle section of the show kicked off with two very keenly contested Young Stock Person competitions. These were confined to girls and boys under 16 years of age. The outright winner of these competitions was Jean McInerney of the Drummin Limousin Herd.

Next on the agenda was the Inter Breed Calf Competition (pedigree calf, male or female born between 1st Sept. 2010 and 31st Dec. 2010). The winner (and no stranger to red rosettes) was Elite Foreverfree from the herd of Edward Tynan, this Sept. 2010 born heifer was reserve overall champion in Tullamore.

The winner of the Inter Breed Calf born on or after 1st Jan. 2011 was Roundhill Giroflee from the herd of Tim and Doreen Corridan, Fedamore, Co. Limerick.

The Limousin classes were judged by Mr. John Connell.

South West Club YMA

To round off a very busy day of showing in Cappamore the South West club held a YMA event. Each entrant was given a calf to show and judge John Connell gave pointers on the do’s and do not’s when showing. Lastly a quiz was completed.

Katie Corridan of the Roundhill herd was deemed the overall winner. In second place was Orla Curtin of the Corcamore herd. Third place went to Michelle Sheahan of the Drombanny herd. Maeve Curtin of the Corcamore herd was placed fourth.

In the Boys section Richard Bateman was first, followed in second place by Eoin McEilligott of the Shannon herd.

We would like to express our thanks to John Connell for judging the classes at the show and for all his advice to our young members. We would also like to thank those who kindly lent calves to the YMA and to all involved in Cappamore show especially Paddy and Sean Ryan.
