Photographic Competition 2016 - Results

Photographic Competition Results were announced by Judge Chris Ball of Staffordshire, England at the recent Board of Directors Meeting. Chris a long standing and highly respected breeder and well known Judge of Irish Moiled Cattle thoroughly enjoyed his new judging experience of photos sent in by members.

Chris thanked all the exhibitors who entered this year’s competition commenting that, "The standard of both cattle and photography were extremely high and it gave me a both taxing and enjoyable task. We had approaching 120 entries with over 20 entries in some of the classes".  

Chris went on to express his gratitude in being given the opportunity to do the Judging and congratulated every single exhibitor who took the time to participate in the competition.

The Supreme Champion photo was that of Michelle McCauley's from Ballynahinch, Co. Down with her young 1-year-old bull, Thierafurth Mick that was purchased in Feb 2016 from his breeder Seamus O'Rourke of Castlewellan, Co. Down.  This young bull has just recently joined the Curraghnakeely Herd of Irish Moiled Cattle in Co. Fermanagh.

The Reserve Supreme Champion photo was won by Nigel Edwards of Tempo, Co Fermanagh with his Senior Cow Roes-Hall Lizzy EX94 which was purchased at the Roes Hall dispersal sale of Noel Porters, Tandragee, Co. Armagh in Nov 2012. This cow is well-known around the show circuit in N. Ireland in the last 3 years having picked up numerous accolades including Reserve Supreme Breed Champion at the RUAS 2016.

Due to the large number of entries in the Scenic/Novelty class it was decided to split this class into a separate Scenic class and a Novelty class.  Winner of the Scenic Class was Nigel Edwards with ‘An Irish Landscape’ and winner of the Novelty class was Patrick Ferry of Letterkenny, Co. Donegal with ‘A Tired Moilie!!’.
