Celebrating 50 Years of the Lleyn Sheep Society in 2020

Lleyn Sheep Society

Sale at Roscommon Mart – Saturday 20th September 2014

An encouraging sale at Roscommon Mart today.  Females were very easily sold with 100% clearance whilst buyers were more selective with the rams.  There were several pens of sheep not forward, these vendors missed out on the positive trade.  There was a good buzz around the ring and pens.

Alan McDonald topped the shearling ewes with his 2nd prize pen selling for €272/head to Philip Murray.  The first prize pen from B Donnellan sold for €260/head to John Burke. 

There was much excitement in the ewe lambs.  Mary Gordon topped at €210/head to John Gornley with another pen at €200/head to Andrew Dodd.  The 1st prize pen from B Donnellan sold at €200/head also to Andrew Dodd.  The 3rd prize pen from JJ O’Neil realised €190/head bought by Phillip Murray.

The champion ram from J Long topped the sale at €800/head being bought by Ray Bracken.  Lot 79 named Carter was sired by a Hamish Goldie ram out of a Derek Steen ewe.  Mary Gordon sold Carrowcollar Coley for 600gns to Gerard Gallagher.  Coley was sired by Carrowdore sire out of a homebred ewe.
