Best of the bids was October 2015-born bull Drumcullen Longshot, exhibited by John Fleury, Co Offaly. By the herd’s former stock bull, Vexour Granville, it stood second in the pre-sale show and was bought by Michael Phillips, Co Sligo.

 

At €6,000 (£5,201.78) was a lot from Pat Mc Clean, Donegal. The Roughan Enzo-sired bull Roughan Leopard was knocked down to Claire O’ Keeffe, Co Waterford, while at €5,800 (£5,028.39) was Brownshill 14 Major from Michael Kavanagh, Co Carlow. A junior male champion at last year’s national Charolais show, this Barnsford Ferry son won its class before commanding a bid from Thomas Whitehead, Co Kilkenny.

 

The Liscally Eti son Cuillmore Luke from Thomas Keane, Westport, was a winner in its class and sold to Frank Murphy, Co Down, for €5,600 (£4,855), while the pre-sale senior champion, Sionhill Lazer, exhibited by the Carey’s, Co. Westmeath, came down at €5,500 (£4,768.30). By Balthayock Hamish, it went home with James Johnston, Northern Ireland.
