G. W. & P. Macaloney have set Scotland alight with their pigeons and the super dream pair are responsible for many fed winners against over 7,000 birds.

Ian Cameron from pear tree farm has also won very well in the midland national flying club, with many top prizes won with pigeons from Macaloney from our line of pigeons. He actually won 4 x 1st section from 5 races flown in 2008 and he also won the midland national channel averages as well as winning 1st & 2nd section, 2nd & 5th open Bergerac 586 miles with them, 14 hrs 41 mins and 15 hrs 11 mins on the wing respectively and on the day of liberation.

Roy Seaton of Annan has won 2 x 1st Scottish national. The first with jimmy Mac from Newbury against 3,918 birds and again with his full sister Mari Mac from Maidstone against 4,193 birds. The two national winners come from children of the dream pair.

Derek flowers from south Wales has also won 6 x 1st welsh national with our bloodlines. Derek also won the coveted queens cup in 2011 with a yearling cock from our bloodlines.

Fell brothers, bob and Tim from lymm in Cheshire started racing only 4 years ago and were complete novices when they started. They obtained eggs from our widowers and immediately won in the club, fed and combine with them. The following year they were highest prize-winners in the fed and again won the combine on many occasions. In fact, 2011 saw them win 6 x 1st, 7 x 2nd, 5 x 3rd, 6 x 4th and eleven other prizes in the first ten of the federation. They also won the old bird averages, channel averages, combined old bird and young bird averages, young bird averages and the point’s cup in the federation.

Wolfendon and O’Neil bred the brilliant cock “wolverine” from our bloodlines. “wolverine” went on to breed “plutology” the most successful U.K. hot spot pigeon to fly in the sun city million dollar race for Crehan & O’Connor and subsequently sold for a record breaking r175 000.

Crehan & O’Conner have flown our pigeons to win in the federation on many occasions.

Wall, Lunt & Green


In the 2011 season four young birds bred from the two daughters of the "Merlin Pair" and from the full brother to "Miss Magic" won the Lanarkshire federation young bird average on their own, flying the six race programme: 1st Fed 6,370, 1st Fed 7,332, 1st Fed 6708, 2nd Fed 2574, 10th Fed 2498, 22nd Fed 4550 birds.


These pigeons have had a brilliant impact on already a loft that was setting records.


This line of pigeons has already had their impact on other federations out of the next generation of birds out of the original four birds.

 Mr Fred Harnett & Son.


First second third & fourth Essex Central federation, 5th 6th 7th & 8th 0pen Essex & Kent Amalgamation 3380 birds


Fred Harnett & Son have without doubt been flying a phenomenal pigeon in the Essex & Kent Wetherby amals. For instance on September the 3rd 2011 in the Essex &Kent Wetherby young bird Amalgamation Fred Harnett & Son managed 1st 4th 5th 6th Essex Central fed 3rd 8th 9th & 10th Essex & Kent amalgamation 4965 birds. It is also an outstanding achievement when you realise this 2012 Wetherby amalgamation is only Fred & his son’s second race this season.


Pigeon (origin)


Fred’s federation winner is a blue chequer two year old widowhood cock, bred from one of his Curtis, Wall, Lunt & Green stock birds


“Dan The Man” wins the Ken McConaghie Skibbereen Derby

The final race in the East Down Combine’s 2012 programme was the 2nd Derby race from Skibbereen which, as a tribute to the man who had done so much for the Combine and the sport of pigeon racing, has been named the “Ken McConaghie Skibbereen Derby”. It included the East Down Breeder/Buyer and I should have details on this next time but I believe about 5 birds were recorded with the winners being D & R Topping of Ballynahinch.


The race, scheduled for September 15th, saw a south west wind blowing which heralded another fast event. With the birds away at 10.15am it was expected that the leaders would be on a mile a minute and indeed this was not far from what happened with the leading 15 birds making over 1700 ypm. Only decimals separated the leaders, the first three being on the same yard.

The winning pigeon was to the Bangor partnership of Jim Burgess & Danny Brennan and this light blue cheq cock wins the race by about .05 of a ypm. Now called “Dan the Man”, this is one of the tamest young birds I have seen in a long time coming to Jim’s hand in the garden. A darkened Yb, he went to Skibbereen feeding a 7 day youngster on his own and the reason that he was feeding this youngster on his own is that the hen he was paired to had been found dead just a few days earlier having hit wires in the nearby Industrial estate; an employee of the local paper very kindly took the trouble to report her and through various channels Jim was able to go and collect her. So you can see why “Dan the Man” as a single parent was anxious to get home from Skibbereen. This cock had already raced well for the partnership having been 3rd club 1st Mount Charles and 11th club Fermoy. Bloodlines are mainly Janssen. The sire, a Janssen from Wall, Lunt and Green from “Astrid” and “Wonder Woman” lines, has a number of 1sts including 1st centre Skibbereen in a NE wind. The grandsire of “Dan the Man” is now the partnership’s No1 breeding cock and has many prizes to his name. The grandam of “Dan the Man” is a Huybregt from fellow club mate Cliff Stewart. The dam of “Dan the Man” is a blue hen and again a direct Wall, Lunt and Green pigeon out of “Stargazer” and “Gem 84”and she has already bred 5 club winners for the Burgess & Brennan partnership. They now have 5 generations of these birds in their loft and they are going really well. Looking on down the Skibbereen result, I see they were also 21st and 22nd open, 10th and 11th East
