           Swords & District C.B.S Show 11th & 12th Of October 2014

Although down in numbers from last year's entry, there were a number of new exhibitors at this years show, but it was dissapointing that such a wonderful show hall was not graced with more budgerigars. Perhaps the time of year is not suiting the Budgerigar fanciers,who at this time of year have their main breeding pairs down. The main winners were as follows:

For the third year in a row, Intermediate Breeder, Gerard Lanigan took Best in Show along with Best Any Age, Best Any Age opposite sex ,  Best  opposite Sex in Show, and Best opposite Sex Young Bird.

Best Young bird went to Champion breeders A&M Comerford.

Best Champion Adrian Shields

Best Intermediate: Gerard Lanigan

Best Novice: Noel Lee

Best Beginner: Robbie Lawlor

The Éire B.S achieved another milestone in their long history when they staged their 60th open show on the weekend of the 13th & 14th of September. In keeping with what has now become a tradition, the committee along with other volunteer members of the club met at 2pm on the Saturday to set up the staging and to layout and decorate the show hall.

 This show saw the addition of two new assets to the club; a new pull up banner and a new award stand.  This will be used to display the top four birds in the show. The show hall was ready and the entries came in thick and fast from 4 pm onwards.

Don Rowell was the judge for this increasingly popular show. Local man Michael Comerfford has done a lot of work to promote the case for the Exhibition Budgerigar at this CBS show, and in the last two years the entries have flooded in. Swords & District CBS is now the leading CB Society in Southern Ireland with a Budgerigar entry of some 177 birds for its most recent show. The Eire BS is delighted with the success of this show, and its members turned out in force to once again lead the way in promoting the Exhibition Budgerigar in Éire.
