If you would be interested or would like to help with the show in the setting up/taking down of cages, cleaning, stewarding, selling raffle tickets, catering, general help, etc. please contact Michael on (086) 8229918. All help is very much appreciated.


When filling your entry form, please put in all the details about the birds entered. Specify the breed and colour, not just AOV or AOC e.g. Barbu d’Anver Quail. These are important details in the event of new classes being formed for a breed or colour (stated above in Rules).


If you are unsure about or need help with filling your entry form, don’t hesitate to ask. There is always someone to help.
Best of luck and enjoy the show!
