It’s a one-in-eleven-million happening – leaving a Currow family gobsmacked as not one – but five Charolais bull calves born on Saturday night.


The five were born on Patrick Howard’s farm in Bawnagleanna, but sadly one died at birth.

“We had fierce excitement,” Patrick told the Killarney Advertiser. “The calves are a great attraction for local children and we have had huge crowds here all the week. It is a pity the other fella didn’t make it – he died at birth. We are feeding them out of a bottle as the cow would not be able to manage the four of them.”

Now the four surviving Charolais bull calves born are set to be named after members of the Kerry football team -at a special naming ceremony on the farm tomorrow (Saturday).
