East Antrim Amalgamation
Roscrea 27/4/24

Saturday saw the 2nd old bird race of the season and after an early alteration to the race program
the EAA found themselves 30 miles further on down the road in Roscrea!
Once again at liberation site the videos and conditions looked excellent and a liberation at 9.30 am
was given the green light.
Topping the Amalgamation this week were the super Larne partnership of Crawford and Robinson,
Rab and Gary timing the hen which had won the previous week for them from Kilbeggan. An
excellent velocity on a challenging day with the weather presenting a few different fronts including
some rain and hail on route. Sire is a Leo van rijn. Dam is a Lesley madden
Excellent couple of weeks for the lads and very well done from all at the EAA!
Jonny Baxter EAA Press Officer

Crawford & Robinson from Larne, best in East Antrim Amal from Roscrea.
