Report on Summer Shows 2013

The Celticstickmakers Club ran two very successful open shows during the summer.  Both shows were well supported and had entries in excess of two hundred sticks, all of a high standard.


Our first show was in Borris, Co. Carlow at the National Country Fair.  Our judge was Mr. Steven Hall.  He had the difficult task of judging a large entry over 16 classes.


Best in Show:         Hugh Gillen


Reserve Best in Show:      John Lutton


Our next show was the Irish Stick Making Championship at the Irish Game and Country Fair in Birr, Co. Offaly.  The Judge here was Mr Alan Graves, again our judge had a difficult job of picking winners from large classes of a continually improving standard.


Best in Show:      Roger Hannah


Reserve Best in Show:      John Lutton


Congratulations to the winners of all the classes in both shows and the overall winners. A  thank you to all our competitors for the high standard of their entries.
