Glenn’s present day family are the Gaby Vandenabeele sourced from M & D Evans. Numerous awards have been won with Glenn’s present day bloodlines.

STOP PRESS: It is with deep regret Glenn has taken the decision to retire from his beloved sport. All birds will be offered – complete clearance.

This is a golden opportunity for the fancy to obtain present day winning pigeons – judged on present day performances not past performances.

All the principle breeders and top racers – plus Select sons/daughters.

An extra special Christmas Charity Online Auction will be held in the coming days.

A young lady struggling each day with crippling MS and her two daughters will benefit from this Christmas Special.

Without doubt, the best of the best, two top fanciers, have donated a pair of birds each for this worthy cause.

The fanciers in question are : (1) Gregg Bros & McCandless .

Without doubt these fanciers own one of the finest stock lofts in the British Isles and fanciers lucky enough to own any of their stock, have won countless awards.

Their bloodlines have won major awards in all organisations – 1st Open INFC - 1st Open NIPA - 1st Open Up North Combine - 1st Open Ulster Fed Etc.

2 - Ronnie Williamson – What can I say that has not already been said?

Ronnie has had another record breaking season to add to last years record breaking season and it goes on and on and on etc.

Both fanciers have donated nothing short of their very best and the online auction will run for approximately 4/5 days - Short and Sweet and hopefully the final result will give this young lady and her two daughters an extra special Christmas box, that they were not expecting.

On offer are four top class birds, that would not leave the lofts, with the exception of this worthy cause.

The online auction will be held on the Pigeon Craic Auction Site – www.pigeoncraic.com/auctions

The event will commence this Saturday night and will finish approximately 4/5 days later – please support this worthy cause.

All proceeds will be donated to this young lady in question.
