CLONAGH LEGAL EAGLE
Legal Eagle was our stand out bull from last years spring line up and with his back pedigree it was an easy decision to withdraw him for sale for our own use. He is a heifers calf by Banwy T-Rex, sire and grandsire of champions and record breaking males and females and the most influential sire ever to have been used here. Noted for his easy calving abilities and maternal traits.
His half sister to Legal Eagle, Clonagh Miss Jessie Murphy was recently sold at our Festive Females ’21 Online Sale for €4,800 to the Glenturk herd, Scotland.

Legal Eagle will be used in our upcoming flushing programme for Cloneygowan Temptress Posh, we can’t wait to see what this produces with her already having excelled breeding to both T-Rex and Dragoon! He will also be used on heifers not to directly related to T-Rex and Dragoon.
