Aberdeen Angus Schools Competition

Following the tradition of two other Le Chéile city schools, Laurel Hill FCJ Limerick  2019 winners (photographed) and Our Lady’s Templeogue ( winners 2017), Ava, John, Nathan and James from St. Louis Community School, Kiltimagh are pictured telling RTÉ presenter Miriam O’Callaghan about their journey to becoming one of five finalists in the Aberdeen Angus Schools competition. Out of 109 entries the St. Louis students and their teacher Mr. Gallagher are extremely proud to have won five Aberdeen Angus calves and to have been given the opportunity to have a stand at the National Ploughing Championships. The competition runs every year and the chosen finalist teams will rear their calves through to finishing and fully benefit from the net profit at sale of the calves to the processor.  An additional €2,000 cash prize will be awarded to one overall winning team.  All finalists receive skills and development, inductions and insights into the meat production supply chain from farm to retail presentation over the course of a 2 year programme.  Good luck to the Kiltimagh students as they embark on their project.
