LAOIS/Offaly Friesian Breeders held their annual dinner and awards night in the Bridge House Hotel last Friday night. As always the event was very well attended and a fantastic array of awards were presented.
The Chairman of the club, Robin Frizzel, paid special tribute to the late Bill Flynn, founding chairman and club president, who passed away during the year. Bill was a hugely important figure in the everyday life of the club since it’s foundation in 1987. He was very involved in farming organisations throughout his life and was on committees of IFA, IHFA, Dovea Genetics and Glanbia to mention but a few.
