Alan Gibbons and Carrowboy Ri from Strokestown in Co. Roscommon took the first place Class B prize at the 2019 Aldi Angus All-Ireland Bull Calf Championships in Co. Kilkenny last Saturday. The Grand Final took place at the Iverk Show in Piltown following several regional qualifier events across the country earlier in the summer.

  Sponsored by Aldi in conjunction with ABP Ireland and the Irish Angus Cattle Society, this year’s competition saw Ireland’s very best Angus bulls battle it out for a prize fund of €27,000 – one of the largest prize funds for an agricultural show in Europe.
