Two of the win­ners at last week’s Car­bery Show in Sk­ib­bereen can claim they have the best beef bull and the best year­ling geld­ing or filly in Co Cork.

John Ca­ha­lane from nearby Castle­haven showed the win­ner of the Cork County Beef Bull Championship Fi­nal.

Qual­i­fiers from the Ban­don, Mi­dle­ton, Cork, Charleville, Clon­akilty, Bar­ry­roe, Dun­man­way, Bal­lyvour­ney and Car­bery shows, were el­i­gi­ble for the fi­nal.

But they all had to give best to Fore­naught Ice, which also won his class and the over­all championship in the Bel­gian Blue sec­tion of the show. The Cork County Year­ling Championship was also de­cided at Sk­ib­bereen, be­tween qual­i­fiers from the Leap, Ban­don, Mi­dle­ton, Bel­go­oly, Clon­akilty, Cork, Charleville, Dun­man­way, Bar­ry­roe, Bal­lyvour­ney and Car­bery shows.

The win­ner of this pres­ti­gious ti­tle was the aptly named Se­cret Weapon, shown by John Tyner, Kin­sale. Championship win­ning ex­hibitors at Car­bery Show in­cluded the fol­low­ing:

John Sheehy pre­sent­ing the John Sheehy Me­mo­rial Cup for the Cork County Beef Bull Championship to John Ca­ha­lane, Castle­haven, owner of For­naught Ice with, from left, De­nis Ca­ha­lane, Tess Ca­ha­lane, Derek Lovell, who judged the championship; Ce­leste Shorten, branch man­ager, Bank of Ire­land, Sk­ib­bereen, championship spon­sor; and Shane Anglim, Bank of Ire­land agri man­ager, Sk­ib­bereen.
