Waterford Bird Society Show 2017 !!!

A great show took part the first weekend of December and i was honored to be there as a guest. Gerry Phellan ,Michael Dunphy and the other lads that are running the club organized a successful Show with famous breeders from all the Ireland. Great judges like Seamus Mhaoldomhnaigh, Kevin O'Donovan, Tom O'Keefe, David Garvey, David Perryman, David Whelan, Noel Hilliard, Jim Kavanagh, the Greek Kostas Kosmis (Champions Yorkshire) and Theotokis Kouratos (Novices Yorkshire) were in Waterford!
Needless to say that Alan Dempsey was for one more time the "tireless" worker!!!  
For the Records, Ollie QUINN (the usual suspect) is  the champion Yorkshire and Michael KINAHAN  is the champion Norwich.
We are grateful for Dempsey's family hospitality and for the Irish hospitality in general.We feel like home, we met real great people and we make new friends!!! Champions like Michael Kinahan in Norwich, Jo McGrath in Yorkies,David O'Keefe with his amazing birdroom (and his fantastic collection of fine Irish Whiskeys), Albert Murphy (an old friend from my last visit to Kilkenny), Michael Kincella ,Murt Murphy the Rebel,great talents like Mike Fraher in Norwich and many many other breeders.
I cannot forget the Bryan brothers,many many thanks to both of them..., Terry was driving for four hours (and waiting one more hour at the airport) to collect us and Willie helped,supported us and he was very generous !!! It was an unforgettable weekend for all of us, hope  to repeat it as soon as possible!!!

       "Thank you lads for this amazing experience!!!"
