Irelands Own Pigeon Auctions

 The 2013/14 Sales Season is in the process of being put together with a couple of early dates for your calendar. Saturday 28th September a Major Reduction for Hollywood Lofts (Northern Ireland) Its with great sadness that Ronnie Higginson has decided to take a step back from racing and breeding over the next couple of years. The loft is acclaimed to putting many good fanciers on the map over the years with excellent results achieved by many. Indeed Ronnie racing in partnership with Gregory Johnston topped the NIPA O/Bird National from Rosscarbery in 2013. More details over the next week or so on this one, simply one not to missed. Venue will be the Sarsfield RPC, Ballyfermot Dublin. Click on Sale Flyer below.

Next for your diary Sunday 13th October Venue again the Sarsfield RPC. Two years of Planning and what a collection we will have from what can only be described as one of the top racing lofts in Northern Ireland namely Jeff Greenaway. Jeff has spent a bit of time planning and breeding for two Auctions conducted by myself with the second batch going to Blackpool in January. Across both sales you will have the extreme best bred specially for these two Auctions with selected pigeons paired together specially some have been set aside over the last couple of years plus some babies this year. Couldn’t have ask for the sales at a better time as Jeff finished NIPA Section D Fancier of the Year last year for the sixth time and looks in very good contention to retain it for a mammoth seventh time in 2013. Top Prize Winner since joining the Dromore HPS in 2009 every year to date. Won the Penzance Classic in the O/Birds plus 2nd Open NIPA Roscrea 21,803 pigeons beat by .2 of a yard; 2nd Open in the Yearling Hens National; 2nd Open NIPA Fermoy 5 Bird beat by .3 of a yard this year.
