Welcome to the Wild Atlantic Way One Loft Race. This race is owned and managed by Sean Hunt and family who are amongst the elite of fanciers to ever race pigeons on the island of Ireland.
Their own racing loft in Ireland’s capital city Dublin is at present breaking and making records in the massive Irish South Road Federation with up to 10,000 pigeons competing weekly.
Sean Hunts own racing loft is also only a short drive from the newly built Wild Atlantic Way OLR loft which is also ideal. Sean Hunt and family have been Irish South Road Federation young bird champions in 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018.Old bird Inland champions 2015,2016 and 2018.Combined Champions 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018.
They are also members of one of the strongest racing pigeon clubs in Ireland today the very strong Sarsfield club in Dublin city where they have also been young bird champions 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018.Old bird champions 2014,2015,2016 and 2018.Combined Champions 2013,2014,2015,2016,2017,2018.
They have a wealth of both knowledge and experience in racing pigeons and are also the owners of one of the best pigeon shops in Ireland namely the Corn Store in Dublin .Their combined knowledge and experience as both successful pigeon fanciers and also the fact that they run a very successful business makes them in my opinion the ideal people to own and run a one loft race. All though Sean Hunt will himself play a very active part in the daily management of the loft and will be the Loft manager and person with sole responsibility as regards the feeding ,health and training etc, of the pigeons at the loft .There will also be two pigeon fanciers working full time at the lofts and the birds will have someone with them at all times 24 hours a day.
If you plan on coming to the final race to be present when the birds return you will also be part of a great experience as there will be a marquee with plenty of food and beverages available to make this day a very enjoyable day for all who attend.
If you would also like to make a weekend out of it there is plenty to do and see within very close proximity of the loft including fishing ,golf etc, or just sightseeing you will be spoilt for choice as the loft itself is only a short drive from Blessington lakes and the beautiful Wicklow National Park which is known as the garden of Ireland also only minutes from the loft is the world famous Irish National Stud and Gardens which houses some of the best race horse stallions in the world today .Also just minutes away from the loft is the famous Japanese Gardens which were created way back in 1906. It is also only a short taxi drive into Temple Bar to sample the best of Irish nightlife if this also appeals to you . Plenty of very good Hotels also within short distance from the loft.
The final race in the series of races will be from Valencia which is situated on the south west corner of Ireland and is 336 km from the home loft.
