26th National Show - Tullamore 2015 “Baileys Iceprincess” reigns supreme

“Baileys Iceprincess” came of age at the 26th National Limousin show when she was awarded the Supreme Champion sash at this prestigious event in the Irish show calendar. Iceprincess also holds the title from Balmoral, a feat she achieved last May. She is owned by the Connell Brothers from Old Castle, Co. Meath and has proven to be an exceptional addition to their Carrickmore herd. Her achievements are in addition to her very successful reign in the show ring last year, culminating in the Junior Female of the year award for 2014.

Reserve Supreme Champion was awarded to the 11 month old bull “Grangeford Jojo ET”€. This impressive bull was bred by Gary Morrissey, Bennekerry, Co. Carlow. Born in September 2014, Jojo is a son of Ampertaine Elgin and the Wilodge Vantastic daughter, Goldies Flojo.

Tullamore Show & AIB National Livestock Show is the Premier Livestock Show in Ireland and attracts breeders of quality cattle and sheep from all over the country. For the past number of years this centrally located venue has staged the National Show for the Irish Limousin Cattle Society. This years line-up saw 125 outstanding Limousin cattle contest in 18 classes, with exhibitors competing from every club area in the country.

Judge for this show was Mr. Ian Nimmo of the noted Maraiscote herd based in Bogside Farm, Wishaw, North Lanarkshire. Ian is a regular visitor to Irish Limousin Cattle events and has judged at numerous shows and sales and in the past. Ian had the unenviable task of judging large classes with up to 18 cattle in some of the younger age categories. “It is an honour to be asked to judge any show, I was delighted to come here to Ireland to judge the ILCS National show. The cattle here today are a terrific example of Irish Limousin genetics with a very high standard in each class. I thought I had seen some excellent cattle while judging the males but when I moved onto the females the quality just seemed to be endless, I thoroughly enjoyed my time here in Tullamore.”

Commenting at the Show ILCS Secretary Paul Sykes said: “What a tremendous line-up of Limousin Cattle here today, these are an example of the creme de la creme of the Irish Limousin Herd book. I must express the societies gratitude to the exhibitors at this our National Show and indeed at shows throughout the country. Thanks to our judge Ian, the stewards, the ladies in the very well received hospitality marquee and to the spectators (many of whom have travelled long distances,  from all over Ireland, the UK and France). A special word of thanks toTullamore livestock co ordinator Trever Chadwick and his team for all his help prior to the event and also on the day itself.”

Shows can’t be run without sponsorship and I would like to thank our superb sponsors, without their assistance this National show would not be the success it is today€ (the sponsors of each class are listed with the results in the tables below).
