National Dairy Show Special Recognition Award was awarded to John O’Flynn, Ryefarm herd, Ballinascarthy, Co. Cork. This is a fitting honour bestowed to a stalwart of Holstein Friesian breeding and of the Cork Club. His wife Chrissy and family members were on-hand to share the conferring of this special honour.
John is highly respected and very popular. He was elected to serve as IHFA President and has also fulfilled numerous officer roles within the Cork Club. He is a dedicated member of the Bandon Agricultural Show, serving as Chairman of the dairy section for many years. Farming with his son Edward, they currently milk 110 pedigree registered Holstein Friesians under the Ryefarm prefix.
