IRISH NATIONAL FLYING CLUB - SKIBBEREEN OB INLAND NATIONAL 2019

In a period of very unsettled weather including the day previous at race marking, a lot of fanciers decided to opt out and that was a mistake for the race on Tuesday 28th May was flown in excellent conditions with blue sky and sunshine. Skibbereen in County Cork was the first of the Irish Nat Flying Club six race programme and returns were very good getting all the competing members off to a good start. Overall this time 363 members sent 3,300 birds to compete for £12,110 in pools and prize money, down on the two seasons previous. Liberation was at 9.15am in a Lt North, NW wind and the winning birds made light work of the journey to home lofts. The race was sponsored once again by Bamfords Top Flight and we are very grateful to them for their continued sponsorship. The race took the same format as previous few years with the Ronnie Johnston Challenge Cup and Diploma awarded to the Overall winner and the Gerald Delaney Trophy awarded to the best velocity of the other two sections. The winner of 1st Section with the lowest winning velocity will receive a coveted INFC Diploma.

There are no INFC Open positions for the Skibbereen Nationals but prizes are allocated to the three sections. As the result is divided into 3 sections I intend to cover the Top 5 in the three sections in this article as has been past practice. Race winner and 1st & 2nd South Sect was won by Dobbs Bros of the Blackwater RPC, recording velocity 1521, 1st Middle Sect was T McLoughlin & Son Finglas in Dublin vel 1411, and 1st North Sect was Sammy Ogle of Drumnavaddy doing vel 1358. Dobbs Bros race winners and 1st SLF win 5 bags of mixture, S Ogle NIPA, J Lindores & Son & Nicholson Ulster Fed, Cromie & Magee & Son East Down Comb, R Coleman ECF, T McLoughlin & Son ISRF win 3 bags of mixture each. Homers Odyssey will feature Centre Results, Combine & Fed Results and Club Results.

1st & 2nd South Sect & 1st & 2nd Open INFC Dobbs Bros, Blackwater RPC – Vel 1521 and 1520 flying 136 miles winning £283 and the Ronnie Johnston Challenge Cup

Dobbs Bros 1st & 2nd Open and South Sect

The pigeon that won is Van loon x Venus he was this year 3rd, 11th, and 15th Club. Sire is a direct Van loon pigeon and is one of the lofts best breeding pigeons , sire of birds to win many races. Dam is direct from Robert Venus a very good hen that has bred many winners also. The pigeon that was 2nd Nat is from a direct Van loon pigeon that has bred many winners also his dam is direct from the Pouw Bros of Holland, she is a suoer breeding hen in the loft. She has bred 8 x 1st Federation winners and the 2016 YB Nat winner in INFC also pigeons to win from France, many fanciers are winning win her children. So the pigeon that was 2nd Nat is 1/2 brother of the 2016 Young Bird Nat winner.

The name of the winner is “William” after my late brother. The pigeon that was 2nd is called “Mia's Boy”. Both pigeons are raced on the widowhood system. Leo Dobbs would like to thank his wife for all her help also good friend Anthony, and Richie, and Lenny for their help as well. He would like to congratulate the Bolger Family on a great race as well giving the Blackwater RPC the top four places.

3rd & 4th South Section Bolger Family, Blackwater RPC – Vel 1513 and 1503 flying 130 miles winning £250.

Staying with the same club the Bolger Family score another top success, finished just behind Dobbs Bros with two early birds. The pigeon that was 3rd South Section was 1st South Section last year and 21st Open in Skibbereen YB Nat with the INFC. Pooled all the way on both occasions and now has lifted £520. The sire of the first pigeon was purchased from club-mate Michael Holman of Wexford which was Van Loon and the dam was bred from club mate Leo Dobbs Jnr, overall race winners Dobbs Bros. 4th South Section is down from old Leo Heremans lines of Peter and Wellens both National Ace pigeons for Leo Heremans. This pigeon is flying well this year and has some good results to his name. He was only lightly raced as a young bird. He was also pooled all the way and nominate. In all the loft had a great race with 8 birds in the first 29 so Lenny said, we're delighted.

5th South Section T O’Rourke & Son, Enniscorthy – Vel 1487 flying 132 miles winning £50.

First bird in the Leinster Premier CC was timed into Enniscorthy by Tommy O’Rourke & Son, the Soontjens Heremans Ceusters cock was already a big time winner. 1st open LPCC Pilmore Beach, 1st open LPCC Owenahincha, 1st open LPCC Castletown, 2nd open LPCC Barleycove beaten by loft mate, 3rd open LPCC Kinsale beaten by loft mate, 3rd open LPCC Casstletown. All told 6 X 1st clubs in Enniscorthy RPC. Very good consistent pigeon Many thanks to Jimmy Hamilton for the details.

1st Middle Section T McLoughlin & Son, Finglas – Vel 1411 flying 177 miles winning £315 and Gerald Delaney Trophy for the Best Vel in the Sect not winning the Open.

Last season in the Skibb YB event Thomas McLoughlin & Son from Finglas in Dublin scored a good 1st & 2nd in the Middle Section, plus 11th & 13th in the National and the week prior to that 3rd Middle Sect & 13th in the Penzance Nat. Thomas said our little hen that done well on Tuesday won 1st Station, 1st Middle Section and 36th Skibb National 3,300 birds. This year she was 65th Open Castletown 5,425 birds and 95th Fed Thurles 7,883 birds. She did not race at all as a youngster. Very happy with her and hopefully more to come. Thomas said “We are racing all our lives and have won our fair share of club wins, also Feds & Open results over the many years. Now race 24 widowhood cocks and they fly the complete program on this system including France”. On top of that they race 50 youngsters on the darkness.

2nd Middle Section Nevin & Barry, Dublin North County – Vel 1406 flying 183 miles winning £135.

Mark Nevin & Eddie Barry are having a fantastic season racing in the Irish SR Federation with the Dublin North County RPC, their winner of 2nd in the Middle Section, 2nd Balbriggan Station was bred from a pair obtained from Sean Hunt & Family who race with outstanding success in the Sarsfield RPC. Over recent seasons have they not only dominated racing in the ISRF with Sarsfield , but produced several winners for others. Six birds away and all six home in one hour. The same bird was 5th ISRF last Saturday 12,000+ birds. A Direct son of our "Super 222 Cock" bred back to a daughter of "Chico" sire and dam bred by Sean Hunt. 2nd hen on the sheet was "TERRY" Direct daughter of the 222.The winning Cheq cock has been named “Mr Perfection” and Eddie very quickly set me up a photo of the winning bird. Think we will hear a lot more about this top Dublin team.

3rd & 4th Middle Section P Rock & Son, Dublin North East RPC – Vel 1404 and 1402 flying 183 miles winning £130.

Another loft needing no introduction, the top Dublin loft from the Dublin NE have won many top places and awards, including the Blue Riband Kings Cup from St Nazaire in 1997 when racing in Malahide with East Coast Federation. Paddy and son Martin timed the first pigeon we timed a 2 year old cock sent on 4 day old eggs. He was raced the early part of the year on widowhood and paired back up with the channel coming up. Skibbereen was his 6th race of the year with Pilmore Beach on the 25th being his last race before the National. Breeding, he is from a son of our Hall of Fame winner “Little PJ” when paired to a Davy Hutchinson Soontjen hen.

The second pigeon they timed is a yearling cock sent after his hen had only laid. Skibbereen was his 5th race of the year with Castletown on the 18th being his last race before the National. His breeding is Eric Ceuleman’s through Frank & George Bristow. The birds are fed on a mixture of Vanrobeys Platteeuw Special & Versele-Laga Champion Plus. Paddy & Martin would like to congratulate all the 1st Section winners.

5th Middle Section Safet Duran, Blanchardstown – Vel 1400 flying 174 miles winning £65.

He is the full brother of my super hen named Vandara 2nd Nat Skibbereen old bird INFC 2017 against 4666 birds. She also won club and was 16th Barleycove Open against 5638 birds. Father of the pigeon is son of Daro. Daro is one of the best racing and breeding pigeon for Louis Cooreman and Bob Fenech. Daro did same in my stock loft until I replaced him with his son. Daro was paired to my Van Loon/Janssen hen which is one of my best line of pigeons also breeder and full sister of my best Van Loon/Janssens with so many winners inland and scoring on channal right up to Kings Cup. Dam is my racing and breeding hen also Van Loon. She raced well for me and won in club and got few time in first 10 in club, she also scored in ISRF and INFC until I put her in stock. She turned out to be an exceptional breeder. She is daughter of my best racing hen with more than 5 first and over 20 times in first 10 (inbreed to number one Van loon pair) .

HOMERS ODYSSEY – INFC Skibbereen Old Bird Clubs, Feds & Combines -

Having returned last season for the third time as PO of the Irish Nat FC, a lot has changed since I was first involved when Allan McDonald was Secretary, we have all the Social Media now and almost everyone has a Mobile Phone. For a number of years we have sent contributions to various websites including http://www.pigeonnetwork.com which we now own and over the last few years I have updated the site first established by Maurice Alexander to cover the History of the INFC and that site http://www.irishnationalflyingclub.com is now linked to our own http://www.pigeonnetwork.com
It was moved about a year ago but still needs a lot of updates done, something I work on when time is available and recently has been set in Wordpress which will enable me to edit with ease. Within http://www.pigeonnetwork.com we have a Forum and a Board there is set up for the INFC, lots of news and results there as well.

Over and above the Top 10 Race Reports I have been listing as many results that were available, from Centre, Feds & Combines and then the list of Club Results which gives a more detailed picture of complete results. Photos are a lot easier done and delivered now, no more waiting on the postman, and I can also gather a lot of info from Facebook. If you have anything at all past or present send it to me to be listed in any of the above. Any photos missed first time around will be added here in this additional report covering all the lofts in Ireland. E-Mail all results and photos to homerbhw@gmail.com
