Chapelizod Texels, Flock HNI, est. 1987

The foundation females were purchased in 1987. Over the subsequent years some very successful rams were purchased; most notably Cush Goldfinger a champion ram bought at the Enniscorthy sale in 1990, which was bred by John Madden. This ram had a huge influence on our flock as a great sire of ewes.

In 2000, Rathaleek Gorgeous was purchased from Liam Blackmore. This ram turned out to have the highest Lean Meat Index (LMI 232) in Ireland, and in turn the Chapelizod flock index rose to No. 2 in Ireland, based on the average flock LMI for 2004 and 2005.
