Limerick Tumblers History in the Making at Leipzig Show 2011Limerick Tumbler Club
2011 was another fantastic year for the Limerick Tumbler Club. After a very successful year obtaining new members into the breed and numerous shows the cherry on the cake was seeing Irish and German bred Limericks on show in Leipzig Germany. The breed was judged and exhibited to a very high standard and a huge thank you must go to the members of the EE for getting the breed this far.
The show was held in the Neue Messe Leipzig on the 2nd to 4th of December. The Irish birds had a very long journey and headed off a week before there owners in order to arrive in time for the judging and this would not of been possible without the help of Richard Greenwood, Mark Rudd and Jim Mullan who looked after our birds along the journey and during penning. We cannot thank you all enough for your efforts. I won't bore you with our travel details but I am sure you can gather a drive from Dublin to Leipzig is not exactly an enjoyable Sunday afternoon outing!!!!! But it was worth every minute of the time and money we spent to be part of a show of this capacity and we are already making plans for next year.
It was also the first time the Limerick Tumbler was judged by the point's system and this was a really a great way for us to get positive feed back on each and every bird.Please enjoy our photos.
