Pi­geon club en­joys young bird success

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THE mem­bers of Ark­low United Rac­ing Pi­geon Club had their birds away at the Dun­gar­van race point for race num­ber two on this sea­son’s young bird race cal­en­dar.

The Cool­roe lofts of Gary and Mark Doyle were the stars of the day as they shook off the rest of the field to time in a good brace to strike gold and reg­is­ter the loft’s first young bird success of the year, with the pre­vi­ous race win­ner Joe Magh­ery tak­ing the lion’s share of the top ten places.

The premier prize win­ner recorded a ve­loc­ity of 1,547.38 for over 73 miles and is pro­vi­sion­ally placed first in Sec­tion B from an en­try of over 2,000 birds. This week­end Pil­more Beach near Youghal Co Cork pro­vides the re­lease site for our third race. The re­sults were first, sec­ond Gary and Mark Doyle; third, fourth, fifth, sixth, sev­enth, eighth, Joe Magh­ery; ninth Tony and Sylvia Mol­loy; and tenth Tony Hobbs.
