Limerick show was held at Limerick Racecourse, Patrickswell on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August, 2012. Cattle showing took place on Sunday.
The show commenced with two very keenly contested young stockpersons competitions. Judge for the 14-18 year old category was Mr. Michael Oliver of the Tullinacurra Limousin herd in Swinford, Co. Mayo. Jean McInerney of the Drummin herd was the winner. While Rachel Moloney of the Ardnacrusha herd was tapped forward as the winner in the Under 14 category by judge Mr. Gerry Lenihan.
The venue, despite the weather conditions, held up very well. Michael Oliver had the unenviable task of judging the Limousin classes as there was very strong competition in all classes.
Roundhill Gailleo ET from the herd of Tim and Doreen Corridan, Fedamore, Co. Limerick was crowned Limousin Champion. Gailleo is a September 2011 born Attirant son from a homebred dam Roundhill Disette.
Michael Sexton was well rewarded after making the journey from Mullagh, Co. Clare when his bull Aloor Felix was awarded reserve Champion. Felix is a Wilodge Vantastic son.
The South West Limousin club held a YMA which was confined to members of the SW Breeders Club. The winner was Richard Bateman from Fedamore.
The results from the Limousin Classes were as follows:
