Patrickswell in county Limerick was the venue for Limerick Show 2017 on Sunday the 27th August. An excellent entry across all breeds lead to good competition in all classes. Undertaking judging duties was John Connell of the Carrickmore herd based in Meath. Sponsors for the Limousin classes were: MSD Animal Health, Roches Feeds and the Irish Limousin Cattle Society.
The long journey from Roscommon was well rewarded for Meelickaduff Honda ET, when she took the Overall Limousin Championship. Owned by Owen Hester, Castlerea, Honda is enjoying a tremendous show season, having taking the Supreme title at the National Limousin Show in Tullamore. Honda was shown with her February born bull calf Meelickaduff Massey.
Standing in Reserve was Roundhill Langel 1700 ET, from Tim and Doreen Corridan, Fedamore, Co. Limerick. This September 2016 born heifer, has amassed an array of red rosettes, in this her inaugural show season. Langel stood as Reserve overall Female Champion at the National Limousin show.
