The entire area in the vicinity of Dromore West in Sligo and much further afield has been shocked by the news of the sudden death of Tim Birdsall on Tuesday, May 7th.
We are forever indebted to Tim for the design, setup and development of this website.
Tim also provided the training necessary for the upkeep, operation and ongoing running of the website. Tim was always obliging and always helpful whenever his assistance was required.

We wish to sympathise most sincerely with his loving wife and sons and extended family.
                    Tim, may you rest in peace.

At the regional meeting in Crosmolina on June 16th, a motion of sympathy to Tim's wife and family was passed.



To promote the Dexter Cattle Breed as a source of Prime Beef to new Producers and Consumers.
