A great day out in Eagles – the craic as always, well worth the trip.
It has been a long time since we had to open a second pack of targets at a Prone match – but with people having to fight for room on the line – it was one of those days.
The largest attendance we’ve ever had for a prone match in Eagles – long may it continue.
In Sporting Rifle, we saw some great shooting with Edward Atkinson and Keith Skinner both getting promoted to B class and Mick McGrath and Tom O’Donoghue both getting promoted to C class.
It was great to see some new faces shooting prone too with a good showing from Courtlough, whose Ian McCandless managed to shoot into the medals.
We saw out first outing for Field Sporting Rifle and there was a lot of interest.
Most people shot from the bipod, but a few shot from a front bag and some very tasty scores were recorded.
An Riochts’ Howard Jones shot a 387 in Field Sporting Rifle – besting the top score in Sporting Rifle, John Walshes 385.
So… this thing might just catch on!!

Special thanks to Stephen Sinclair and Mick Tope who RO’d all day.
Thanks to Paddy, Mick and the gang at Eagles for what was a great day … and fantastic biscuits.
