The Club returned yet again to the wonderful setting of Birr Castle Demesne, Co.Offaly. By very kind permission of the members of the Derrinsallow Shooting syndicate. Steward of the Beat for the day was Tony O’Brien who was assisted by John Keeshan, who both had an excellent knowledge of the ground and as a result the trial flowed hassle free.
The trial was once again very kindly sponsored by Massbrook Petfoods.
Our Judges for the day were Tim Dennehy(A), Paul Carragher(B) and Des Donnelly was the C judge.
In summing up at the end of the trial Tim Dennehy highly praised the Syndicate for the quality of the ground.
The winner received the Denis Flannery Memorial Cup.
