This year will mark the 50th anniversary of the Irish Limousin breed. The first pedigree calf was born on June 22nd, 1972, on Paddy Clancy’s farm in Carrick-On-Suir, while the first meeting of the Irish Limousin breeders was held on February 16th, 1973, at the Silver Springs Hotel in Cork.
To mark this great milestone, several key events will take place during the period June 2022 – June 2023, and this programme will provide a unique opportunity to highlight the history of Irish Limousin.
A special 50th Anniversary Show and Sale will take place in Carrick-on-Shannon from September 30th through to October 1st. This will involve pedigree and commercial classes, along with a special ‘Mega Moo’ €10,000 Heifer Competition.
