ILC Day 2: Herd Visit - Drummin Limousins

The Drummin herd in Clonmoney, Newmarket-On-Fergus, Co. Clare was the first port of call for the International Limousin Congress Delegates on Monday the 22nd August 2016.

Owned and managed by John and Paula McInerney, and their family Jean and Eoghan, this outstanding herd is run in conjunction with a busy dairy herd.

The Drummin farm is located one mile from the picturesque village of Bunratty.  The area is steeped in history with the regions most famous landmark, Bunratty castle, proudly overlooking the majestic river Shannon, the longest river in Ireland and as John was proud to inform us, the longest river in the British Isles.

Visitors to Drummin were in awe of the outstanding livestock on display. The herd is synonymous with quality and given its size it has a very high status in the Limousin herd book. Cattle bearing the Drummin prefix consistently top sales and show rings. Up to the present time at the National Limousin Show the herd has had nine All Ireland Calf Championships with a further two won by embryos sold by the herd.

Guests were greeted by the McInerney family including John’s mother Noreen, his brother Michael and nephew Andrew. Michael and Andrew have their own pedigree herd, Brickhill. John took to the podium and expressed his delight at hosting this prestigious event. He thanked the delegates for visiting and all who helped in the lead up. He also mentioned his late father and how proud seeing this day come to fruition would have made him. John has in the past credited the marvelous fore-sight of his parents with his love of farming.

First up of the cattle was a paddock containing in-calf and maiden heifers, in the neighbouring paddock were cows with calves and foot. The show-team for 2016 were tied in the shed and delegates were delighted when some of these were lead out giving them the opportunity to view them at an even closer angle.

Two of the show team are in the sales catalogue for the forthcoming Elite Sale on Saturday 27th August at Cillin Hill, Co. Kilkenny. Drummin J-Lo ET and Drummin Kailee ET have amassed numerous titles since they were calves. Their dam Drummin Cliona ET has been very productive and indeed all her offspring have been very lucky for the McInerney’s. Cliona was on display and even at the age of nine is in tremendous form.

A presentation was made to John to mark this memorable occasion followed by a delicious spread, with burgers, sandwiches, scones and biscuit cake which was relished by all present with the added bonus of an ice-cream cone as guests were making their way to the car-park.

The Irish Limousin Cattle Society would like to thank the McInerney family and the ILC2016 sponsors for making this event such a huge success, we would like to wish the family continued success in all their endeavors.
