The NIPA Open was topped by Willie Neill of Annaghmore, a loft that needs no introduction with a host of massive results over recent seasons. Steve McGarry called at the loft over the weekend and got a photo and some brief detail. The yearling Blue cock has been named Champion “Speedy Kyle” and flown on the lofts unique Roundabout System, bloodlines are the best of the loft. 1st Sect E and 1st Open NIPA will add nicely to the lofts growing CV. Congratulations lads on a great result.
