The Northern Ireland Field Target Association (NIFTA) recently held its perpetual trophy shoot at its grounds in Mid Ulster Air Rifle Club, Loughgall, and at Cottage Quinn in Dungannon.

The two-day event was well attended by shooters and their families and great weather was enjoyed by everyone.

A new NIFTA/Countryside Alliance Ireland trophy was kindly sponsored by Countryside Alliance Ireland and after a competitive two days’ shooting Mark Belvins emerged as victorious.

The event concluded with a barbeque and everyone enjoyed an excellent meal of rabbit, pigeon and venison. NIFTA would like to express thanks to Countryside Alliance Ireland for kindly sponsoring the new perpetual trophy.
