2nd Roscrea YB - Sunday 20/08/23

Post by willie reynolds »


The N.I.P.A. where scheduled to be in Gowran Park, after a meeting between the AIR Corp Bal Donnell, Dublin Airport Authorities and Southern Officials from our sport of Pigeon Racing dealing with the issues of the area around Dublin Airport. It came to the same conclusion as the old bird race scheduled that the race point would be moved to Roscrea in County Tipperary further inland away from the safe zone area of the Airport. Our Team in the N.I.P.A have worked very hard on this matter and put the safety of everyone’s birds first as always and a great job they do to make that point. A Total of 533 members of the Mighty N.I.P.A. sent 16,981 Birds to 2nd Roscrea. The Birds were liberated in Roscrea Liberation site at 8:15 AM on Sunday morning the 20th of August in great conditions with a Southerly Wind.
