Ladies Night - Friday 10/11/23

The NIPA was founded in 1945 and it's membership was open to all members within Northern Ireland - We are one of the largest weekly convoying organisations in the UK. Presently we have approx. 100 clubs as members, with over 2,000 members. Birds competing each week can reach 25 to 30 thousand, depending on the race. The race programme starts in Ireland down to Rosscarbery and continues through Wales & England to Penzance, and the Premier OB Nat flown from St Malo (France).

The NIPA Ladies Night was hosted at Ballymac Hotel.

NIPA Ladies Night this year was held for the first time in the Ballymac Hotel Dundrod, beside the home of the famous Motorcycle Grand Prix circuit on Friday 11th November. The members and guests were welcomed by the Chairman Pat McLaughlin from the Maiden City RPS in Derry. He introduced the guests including from the RPRA (Irish Region), President Sam Briggs, Chairman Cormac O’Hare and Secretary Noel Higginson and main sponsors Frazer Animal Feeds from Banbridge and Beattie’s Bird & Pet Foods from Tandragee. They were joined by the NIPA officials President Paddy Murray, Secretary Fred Russell, and Assistant Secretary Joey Vage. Before the meal of Roast Beef Samuel Briggs said grace and then followed the long presentation of awards. The awards were presented by President Paddy Murray and Diane from Frazer Animal Feeds. More photos over later weeks. Congratulation’s to the many winners.
