Jos Reilly from Ireland needs no introduction and only buys the best regardless of cost. Jos is always on the lookout for something special and has once again gone for the best, in fact he was the under bidder with 60,000 Euros on a very special pigeon by the name of Birdy (DV07-900-06503). Birdy was eventually purchased by Jan Hooymans for 61,000 Euros at the total aucton of Mark Kitchenbrand from South Africa.
