The final race of the highly successful North Coast Classic One Loft Race based in Coleraine Co Londonderry was flown on Sunday 8th September with liberation in Rosscarbery at 8.35am in helping conditions. Birds were expected to romp home and that’s exactly how it turned out making the home loft just over five hours for the 265 miles from Rosscarbery in County Cork. Hot Spot races had been held over the previous six Sunday’s from Monaghan (1), Monaghan (2), Mullingar, Tullamore, Thurles and Clonmel. Race winners who collected their winning cheque for £12,000 from Mr Sean Diamond were the popular Cookstown Sizzlers a partnership of ace racers Glen Smith and Karl Murphy who can race with success everywhere they go. Almost 300 birds had been recorded by tea time before the presentation was held at night in the local Lodge Hotel going on until the wee small hours. The birds that returned will be sold in a series of sales to be held over the winter months. HOMER.
