North West club trip to Carlisle July 2011

The North West Limousin Club are organising a trip to the UK  national Limousin show to be held on July 30th 2011. The British limousin society are holding an open day at the Haltcliffe herd of Messrs Ridley on the day before the show ( July 29th)

The provisional timetable for the trip is:

  • Depart Knock Airport Thursday 28th July 2.10 pm
  • Arrive Liverpool Airport 3.15 pm
  • Visit Limousin farm on Thursday evening
  • Friday visit two limousin herds, one being the haltcliffe herd
  • Saturday National Limousin show at Carlisle mart Rosehill, Carlisle
  • Sunday   Depart Liverpool airport 12 noon arriving knock airport 1.10 pm

The cost of the trip will be 260 euro approx, covering return trip knock-liverpool with Ryanair, three nights accommodation and a coach to transport us from Liverpool to Carlisle and around to the farms.

The exact cost cannot be finalised as the bookings with ryan air are not a group booking. I know the cost for the first passengers but cannot calculate the cost for all fifty until i book them. Also exchange rate changes  may occur.

I propose to collect a booking deposit of 200 euro per person immediately with the balance calculated and collected on day of travel. Closing date for receipt of deposit is 1/3/2011. If you wish to book a place on the trip please send a cheque made out to Michael Gunn, Hillview , Ovaun Elphin, Co. Roscommon. For further info you can ring me on 086 3122897.

As with other trips paid up members of the North West Limousin club will have first option on places but if we cannot get 50 to fill the bus we will be opening the trip up to the rest of the country. The other two herds to be visited will be picked from prominent herds in the Carlisle area.

 When booking it is important that you give me your full name as it is on your passport. (Passports are essential when travelling with RyanAir) A contact number and address are also needed. I will need the passport number and expiry date, your nationality and date of birth so that I can book in online. This will reduce the cost.  We will only be away for three days so hand luggage only please. This keeps cost down and speeds up check-in and departure from the airport.
