We couldn’t have hoped for a better day for the first race of the season and indeed the 1st race for the newly formed amalgamation. It was clear after the dreadful weather we have all had the videos from the liberation site looked promising and a good honest race lay ahead. Winning the race this week and no stranger to the top honours was Jim Armstrong of D&J Armstrong Carrickfergus.
Jim was in top gear with a 2 year old blue hen from his well established family of Louis Corman pigeons which have been ultra successful over the years. It’s also worth noting this hen was 2nd section last season for Jim from Roscrea. Full brothers and sisters are also 1st prize winners. She was raced on Jim’s current widowhood system.
Well done big man on your win from all at the EAA.

My plan is to give a special mention every week and this week it goes to N. Mccallister of Eastway winning his own club and taking no less than 5 of the top 20 positions, that’s a great card so very well done to you sir.
I look forward to the season ahead and would like to thank every member and club who joined this to make it all possible. All being well we will go from strength to strength. Any objections to the EAA Secretary within 7 days. Thank you. Jonny Baxter EAA Press Officer.


Jim Armstrong from Carrickfergus, winner in East Antrim Amal.
