* Just one day after posting a list of breeding performances for Drum on our site, another great National winning performance was reported by Dennis Irvine of Lisburn,Northern Ireland winning 1st I.N.F.C. Skibbereen..once again down from the Drum bloodline crossed with the super Heremans Ceusters lines.
Just had a nice message from Dennis Irvine from Lisburn,Northern Ireland to say he won the Irish National Flying Club Skibbereen Young Bird National yesterday when 352 members entered 3075 birds.
His bird was a clear winner being 15 yards per minute ahead.
The father of his National winner was bred by his friends Gordon Parker and Son and was a gift bird from their top Heremans Ceusters bloodlines featuring the principle birds..Euro..Olympiade ..Di Caprio
The mother of his National winner is GB12R22449 that Dennis bought at our Dublin auction. She is bred from ‘Little Devil’ one of the youngest sons of Drum when he was paired to Aspen also from Leo Heremans.This Aspen hen is turning out to be a very decent breeder.She is also the mother of Geoffrey Douglas’s super racing hen ‘Foxy Jen’… the mother of GB12R22449 is Blauwe Helena bred by Maurice Haesendonckx whose bloodline is at the base of many top Belgian and Dutch lofts including Heremans Ceusters..
Many congratulations and very well done once again to all concerned.
