View flock as their ewe lamb Aileach View Heebeejeebees ET , was awarded the Champion

Female and Reserve Champion on the day also. Selling to Aeron James’Seaview flock in

County Waterford.

The Premier Sale is the Society’s second sale of the year and timed for both pedigree and

surprise from early on Friday afternoon that both sale averages and clearance rates would

be high as a fantastic standard of sheep was put forward in all classes.

Judge on the day was Wade McCrabbe from the esteemed Ardstewart Flock , County

Donegal and he did a stellar job. Wade had a very difficult task as large numbers of sheep

were presented forward in all six classes. The high standard of sheep was remarked upon

throughout the show ring.
