Due to the weekend Bank Holiday weather report the NIPA brought forward the third old bird race having birds race marked on Thursday and released at 12 Noon on Friday 2nd May in Roscrea with a Lt Easterly wind. 15 year old Troy Booth who races with Mourne & District in the Strabane area has topped the Mighty NIPA from Roscrea with 26,000 birds competing recording velocity 1478. Young Troy reported the pigeon was raced on the natural system last year as a young bird. He received around 25 training tosses and got one race. I then paired him up at the start of this year and then split him and raced him on the roundabout system. He came well out of the first two races from Tullamore before winning the third race. The yearling Cheq Pied cock is Van Wildermeerch crossed with a direct daughter of Chris Gordon’s Kings Cup winner, both birds were both bought for stock.

Friday 01/05/15

Good morning the N.I.P.A. are in Roscrea, I have spoken to the convoyer and he has informed me that the birds are on site and the drinkers are on. Its a nice morning with high greyish white cloud and visibility 100%.So I will continue to monitor the progress of the rain which is in co cork at the moment , I intend to hold has long as the rain allows me to , so I will up date accordingly.

Good morning the N.I.P.A. are in Roscrea, I have spoken to the convoyer and we are sitting in a high greyish white cloud with a light easterly wind and the sun is trying to break through . So we are setting up for a possible liberation around 12-00 noon, so I will up date again as soon as I have confirmation of the liberation time.

Good afternoon the N.I.P.A. are in Roscrea, the birds have been liberated at 12-00 noon, they where liberated in broken cloud with the sun trying to get out, the wind is light easterly in direction and the temperature was 12 degrees . At Dublin the wind is south easterly coming from 100 degrees at 16 knots and the cloud height is few at 1800ft and broken at 18,000ft visibility is 10 kilometres or greater. So good luck to all and I hope you have a good race.

Crates
Posted on May 1, 2015 by fred
would all clubs please inform the NIPA of the number of crates in their possession I desperately need to re distribute crates as some clubs are really struggling to hamper all their entries . If you have any more than 2 spare crates not in use you will have to surrender these as I cant stress highly enough the need for these. Posted in Latest Nipa news.

Corrin
Posted on May 1, 2015 by fred
Next weeks race is due to be flown from Corrin 6029 this new racepoint is just south of Fermoy and we are liberating there as we are unable to access the Irish army camp at Fermoy on this occasion as the range is being used for training purposes on that particular weekend . Would all clubs ensure that they have measurements for this racepoint and also ensure that they have measurements for the new Bude 6028 and also Portlaoise 6030 . Posted in Latest Nipa news.
