The show of the Irish Texel Sheep Society’s premier sale took place on Friday evening, with Monaghan breeders John, Colm and Michael McHugh claiming top spot. Their ram lamb born in February 2020 ticked all the boxes for young judge Aaron Myles from Co Donegal.

The stunning ram, named Greenhill Dance Monkey, secured top place in the index class before securing the male championship followed by the supreme championship.
