ILC Day 2: ILC 2016 visits the best in the west

On Monday evening the 22nd August congress delegates were treated to a wonderful evening of superb Limousin Cattle, music and dance courtesy of the North West Limousin club at the Equestrian Centre in Glenamaddy, Co. Galway. A packed schedule of classes with commercial and pedigree cattle on show demonstrating the wonderful quality livestock being produced in the North West of the country. This area represents 24% of the membership of the Irish Limousin Herd book and we were delighted to showcase our Limousin cattle to the International audience.

MC for the evening was local man Martin Regan, who kept everyone engaged with his running commentary.  Proceedings got under way with a number of show classes both commercial and pedigree, the results of these are listed below. A very good entry in all classes made for a spectacular display of top quality cattle.

Here in the North West club we were delighted to secure the services of the British Limousin Cattle Societies Chairman Mr. John Phillips to judge all classes. John and his wife Heather run the Gronw herd in Esgerddeugoed, Cwmfelin-Mynach, Whitland, Wales.

Once all classes had been judged it was the turn of the YMA to strut their stuff, they carried out their task impeccably and should be all very proud of their performance. Well known YMA member Saoirse Oliver was tapped forward as the winner, with Jack Vahey in second and Jack Cronin third, each YMA member went home with a memento of a lovely polo-shirt.  Many current breeders from the North West started their showing careers in the YMA.

After the show the ILC delegates were treated to a delicious evening meal, which they enjoyed while mingling with the North West club members. Anyone who knows the North West club will be aware that they love to have a good time almost as much as they love their Limousin cattle and this event was always going to have a fun element. Michael Sexton played a repertoire of Irish music to get feet tapping and hands clapping, the dance floor was thronged with movers and shakers from all over the globe!

For a taste of traditional Irish dance the Abbeyknockmoy Set Dancers and the Elphin Set Dancers took to the floor and gave a wonderful exhibit of their dancing skills after which the local Ceoltóirí group performed a melody of lively tunes. 

As the evening wound down and busses arrived to collect our distinguished guests, John Phillips was once again called up to make a draw for a prize of €1,000. This prize was won by a local lady and we wish her a happy spending spree! Our club Chairman, Michael Oliver, then made a presentation to John and Heather as a keepsake of their evening in Glenamaddy.

This event would not have been possible without the efforts of our NW Congress committee, our secretary Brid Brennan and the ILC committee. We would like to thank them for their sterling efforts. We greatly appreciate all our Sponsors and we would urge everyone to support them.

Overall pedigree champion was Derrygullinane Kiniko, a May 2015 born heifer from Gerry Walsh. This heifer is a daughter of the Gerrygullinane Glen. Reserve champion was Cappaduff Lorenzo from Joe Moran. Lorenzo also won the coveted Michael Dale cup for the overall winner of the Calf Championship, all calves born from 1/9/15 were striving to obtain this cup which is in honour of the late Michael Dale from Gort. Michael was a leading member of the club and an avid Limousin breeder. Clewbay Kerry from Padraig Golden was reserve Calf Champion.

Champion Commercial was Olaf from Derrick Forde, Reserve was Derek Maxwell’s Black Beauty.
