Commenting after the show Marie Louise said: It was a pleasure to judge here in Limerick show today. While the number of cattle was small in most of the Limousin classes the quality throughout was excellent. I was privileged to give both Champion and Reserve to two cows with calves at foot. Thank you very much to Limerick show and to all the exhibitors here today.
