Welcome everyone. Hopefully this will be a constructive group, with one objective. To promote Long distance racing into Ireland. We all know how good Northern Irish long distance pigeons are, lets strive to promote them in a coherent and professional manner. Any ideas on how we can make this happen, or what you as racers wan’t please let us all know. This is an open forum where everyone’s opinion is valid. Anyone who would like to become a member please contact Martin O Neill or myself Jonathan Bailie. Click Here for info-
Northern Ireland Continental Club –
The 1st race of the 2021 race season is now over, with the INFC yearling national from Sennen Cove.
Congratulations to all who timed from such a hard race.
Going forward it was intended that the next race, was going to be the first of 3 races organised by Michael Feeney of the 32 counties transporter organisation.
As most of you will be aware of by now, Michael has cancelled the race from Nort Sur Erde scheduled for Wednesday 23rd of June, as he did not have the required liberation documents from the French authorities to hold this race.
Therefore the remaining race programme will be duplication results from all the national races organised by the INFC, (EDC, NIPA & Ulster Fed provided the organisations all release from St. Malo at the same time).
Michael has assured our Chairman Martin O’Neill, that he is working hard to get licences in place, for a race later in the year from either Nord Sur Erde or Poitiers. He has also said that he may be transporting to the BICC Guernsey race on 10th July, we await confirmation. However if he decides to hold any races without the required liberation documents from either France or UK the NICC will not be having these races as part of our programme nor will the Northern marking station (Kindly offered by John Abernethy of Harmony Lofts) be available.
On behalf of NICC office bearers.
