The N.I.P.A. plan to start the 2020 racing season from Tullamore.
The race advisor has informed the management committee during this evenings Zoom meeting that weather reports indicate that Monday is the most favourable day to race, and race marking could take place on Sunday.
The race advisor will continue to check the weather reports and our next update will be on Saturday when further information on race marking will be available.
zoom committee meeting scheduled for Monday 25th May 2020 has been rescheduled
for Tuesday 26th May 2020. Monday is a Bank Holiday and the Northern Ireland
Assembly will not be meeting on that day.
The N. I.
Assembly has to pass amended legislation to permit us to race pigeons. If
this legislation goes through then the relevant departments in the N.I.
Assembly and the relevant departments in the Republic of Ireland will contact
each other and hopefully agree for racing to commence.
Racing cannot take place until all of this is agreed and signed off.
Please be patient and give all involved the space to carry out this very important work of obtaining permission.
AS SOON AS WE RECEIVE ANY FURTHER INFORMATION YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IMMEDIATELY.
