P & J Boal loft feature by Adie –


With many more 1st’s, top NIPA Section & Open Positions plus 4 x RPRA Awards since my last visit back in 2009 I thought it about time to repay a visit to the lofts of Philip & Joe Boal in Dromore, Northern Ireland. Philip Boal before I go any further is a fancier that I have covered before following outstanding levels of success over the years, I personally rate him as one of the best fanciers in N.Ireland for consistency, knowledge, good stockmanship which has resulted in many other fanciers at every level of competition winning big with his pigeons, but in my eyes more importantly a performance fancier who year in year out is mixing it just not with the top fanciers at Club, or NIPA Section D Level but over-all in the MIGHTY NIPA, particularly with the lofts O/Bird performances. Having scribed now for a number of years covering many top lofts, I give particular stature to a loft that can produce outstanding O/Bird performances, personally I consider these the harder to motivate to success in comparison to Y/Bird racing.
