The beautiful surroundings of Limerick Racecourse was the setting for Limerick show on Saturday and Sunday the 23rd and 24th of August. Cattle competitions for this show were held on Sunday. Kicking off the judging was two eagerly contested interbreed young stockperson events. These classes were judged by Richard O’Beirne (Milburn Herd) and Leo McEnroe, two highly respected judges and cattle breeders. Local girl Orla Curtin of Corcamore, Clarina picked up first prize in the over 14 years category. Orla showed Roundhill I-Giroflee 1499 Et from the herd of Tim and Doreen Corridan.

Mr. Basil Bothwell of the Riverdale Herd based in Killeshandra, Co. Cavan judged the Limousin classes. Adding to her many successes to date the Champion at Limerick show was “Milbrook Ginger Spice”. Bred in county Meath by William Smith, Ginger Spice is a daughter of Wilodge Vantastic and Milbrook Baby (a Brookmill Usefull Et daughter). Reserve Champion went to the Coppertop Frankie daughter “Carwin Hillery” from the herd of Dan Tynan, Mountrath, Co. Laois.
