The 2009 YMA workshop was hosted by the North Western Club and staged at Elphin show on Saturday 5th September.

The schedule of events for the day consisted of technical session with well known stockman Mr Richard O Beirne followed by a stock judging competition where the young members had to judge the cattle and then give their reasons to master judges Ms Teleri Thomas and Mr Richard O Beirne.

The final event was the stock handling which involved all the competitors showing calves in the ring under scrutiny of the two judges. In total 25 youngsters participated with a very high standard set in both the senior and junior sections .

The winner in the Junior section was Elaine Clancy Mullagh Co Clare while Tom Hickey Won the Senior title. The two highest scores on the day were recorded by Tom Hickey and Sean Moroney which placed them on the Irish team to represent ILCS at the Anglo Irish final in Carlisle next December.

Many thanks to all who attended Elphin in particular the group of YMA from Northern Ireland accompanied by Brian McElroy, Joan Gillard and Peter Smyth.

Likewise to our two judges Teleri Thomas and Richard O Beirne who were both generous with their time and so genuinely interested to help.

Great credit is also due to the organisers The North Western Club, Elphin Show, James Wycherley, Pat Bruen ( Steward ) and in particular Michael Gunn.
