The T.A.I. are proud to announce their second year of Taxidermy Championships. We will be hosting our weekend in the Castle Oaks Hotel in Limerick. . We will start registration on the first day, the 27th of September where ALL competitors will get the opportunity to register their specimens. Saturday the 28th will be a jam packed day of talks and demonstrations. This year we will be joined by Mr Martin Berndt, a first place winner (2012) at the World Taxidermy championships. We also have a visiting neighbour from the UK, Ms Emilie Woodford. Practicing Taxidermy since 2016 she has worked alongside the likes of Carl Church. We also have two of our own Irish Taxidermists, Peter Gregory and Dave Hogan, both gentlemen have been practicing Taxidermy for over 30 years.
This year we are welcoming back Mr Rick Way, our independent Judge, who will also be accompanied by our second Judge Mr Wesley Kevenaar. Rick works for De Museumwinkel and Wesley currently works for the world-renowned Bouten & Zoon
Entry to the championships are open to all members of the Taxidermy association only. Non-members can of course attend the talks and seminars and can purchase a day pass. There will also be a visiting opportunity for the general public to see all our mounts, throughout the day, however competition pieces will be available for viewing after the judging has taken place.
