The second Autumn sale of the Irish Limousin Cattle Society took place at Carrick-On- Shannon on Saturday 15th November where only quality bulls were in demand. With a strong entry of 74 bulls and 47 heifers average prices were similar to the corresponding sale last year at €2,100 and €2,190 respectively.

Topping the days bull trade was Newtown Charles from the herd of Leitrim breeder – Stanley & Mark Richardson, Newtowngore, Co. Leitrim. This son of Cloughhead Lord is an embryo calf out of the famous Castleview Rub, prolific dam of many champions over the years. Earlier in the day Charles had got the nod as the Male Champion of the pre-sale show by judge, Michael Fox and was watched all the way to the sale ring by Gerard Delaney, Dunmore, Co. Galway who bought him for €4,300.

Next best bull price on the day was Mount Scott Chawkie from the herd of Michael Sexton, Mullagh, Co. Clare. This powerful mature bull by Jockey was out of a Gamin dam, was ready for use and duly purchased by P.J Hunt, Ballinderry, Co. Roscommon.

It was a long wait for third priced bull, with the last lot into the ring – Moloskey Craver - realising €2,750 for his breeder Brendan Clancy, Mullagh, Co. Clare. This son of the popular Ronick Hawk boosted superb Eurostar & BLUP indexes and was purchased by Colin McElvaney, Cornamundy, Co. Monoghan.

Reserve male on the day was Bremore Bondjames (by Picador) from the herd of Dan Tynan, Mountrath, Co. Laois. This 24 month bull went unsold at €2,800.

In the heifer section it was the longest travelled that reached the top price. At €3,300, from Cappamore, Co. Limerick, Sean Ryan produced Sliabh Felim Charlette, a Nenuphar daughter our of a Malibu cow. This heifer’s journey didn’t stop there, as she had to travel all the way to her new home in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone, to the herd of Michael Loughran. She wasn’t alone, as Michael had already purchased a bull earlier in the sale.
