We have to apologise to you all today as due to a computer glitch the birds did not clock .We will treat today's Hotspot as a trainer and will hold Hotspot 3 from Navan on Thursday . Tonight we will put on a returns list as we have rectified the problem. Again we can only offer our sincere apologies.

We congratulate today’s Hotspot winner , Charlie’s Champions ( Keiran Galvin ) on his victory today . Also to our other prize winners today a big well done . Denis Gregg GB 17 c 07517 in 3rd today was 2nd from Navan Hotspot 3 . This fine youngster was bred off two pigeons that Denis bought at NCC sales . Aces Clampy x Fomula One Lofts .

WINNER'S OF HOTSPOT 5.....CHARLIE'S CHAMPIONS....
A big congratulations to Kieran Galvin and son Charlie ( who by the way, this winning syndicate is proudly named after ) on their success in hotspot 5....
Kieran has kindly supplied me with a pic of the winning syndicate and a short pedigree of today's winner and after reading it, horses for courses jumped into my mind...The sire and dam both came from the top lofts of Jimmy and Richard Hamilton. With the sire being a Cooreman and the dam a Cooreman, Soojten cross
A full sister to today's hot spot 5 winning pigeon was 4th open in last year's NCC Final, for Kieran and Charlie, so as i said horses for courses....i've slipped in a pic of last year's 4th open hen because as you can see ,she's a real pleasure to look at .....but will get a pic of today's winner sorted by the weekend ....
