A massive thank you to our incredible team, without them none of this would be possible. All gave 100% in the sweltering heat. Cian Martin, Manus Connolly, Alan Burleigh, Oisin Lunney, Colin Welly Dunne, Sean Callan, James Kelly, Nigel Hogan, Shane Swanick and Clives Swanick, “The Godfather” Padraig Gowing for transporting the young stock and Enda O’Dea for once again supply us with his lorry for the day. Martin and Murt Ryan for the use of their gazebos. Photographer Mullagh Photograhy for his endless patience! And as always the team at Tullamore show, Trevor Chadwick and Chelsea Cox and our ring stewards Ann Corcoran, Michael Keating, Liam Martin and Sean Larkin who kept everything flowing throughout the day and inside the ring; Peadar Glennon, Emmanuel O’Dea and Marian Pilkington.
Needless to say it was worth waiting three years to come back to the field of dreams and we will strive to come back again next year.
