RPRA (Irish Region) Awards presented at NIPA Ladies Night -

The Irish Region (RPRA) awards are presented annually at the NIPA Ladies Night, this year the presentation was carried out by Mrs Yvonne Reid wife of the long-time Irish Region Secretary Robert Reid from Carrickfergus. The Single Bird performance is awarded for best in each NIPA Section and overall winner on this occasion was B & P Baird from Markethill. It would be nice to see this extended to include other affiliated organisations including East Coast Fed (Dublin) and Mid Antrim Combine. I also look forward to getting the info on the birds going forward to be considered for the Blackpool Presentation, our top winners miss out almost every year. With this report I have included Bingham & Seaton who won the Massarella Trophy for Best YB Performance in 2015 with Mighty David.
