The Limerick Tumbler Club Show at the The Irish Flying & Fancy Pigeon Society Kilmurry Lodge Hotel, Limerick 29th October 2011
The Limerick Tumbler Club held itís annual club show within the The Irish Flying & Fancy Pigeon Society annual championship show at the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel, Limerick, Ireland, on the 29th October 2011. Eighty quality Limericks were entered, from Ireland and England. The cream of the crop were on display, there was not one bad typed pigeon amongst them. Any serious Limerick Tumbler breeder should take the time and travel to this show, to either view or compete against the birds here.
This year, we decided to split the birds into colour classes to enable more birds to compete for the top honours. Previous years we have had up to 25 birds in one class, so splitting into colours seemed a fairer option. The birds were split into Any Colour Chequer or Bar, Any Colour self, and Any Other Colour. Jamie Vaughan, who had travelled from Wales, had the difficult task of sorting through the birds, with Karen (Mum) his able steward, he did a grand job and in very good time too. Well done and thanks Jamie and Karen.
