The Joe Murphy Column


I start this week’s column with a ‘Blast from the Past’; as Margaret found an old article from the Evening Telegraph dated 9th September 1983. Which had the headline ‘Ever Heard of a Pigeon Widow?

Keeping and racing pigeons takes up so much of Fife miner Joe Murphy time, that his wife Margaret had dubbed herself a ‘pigeon widow’. ‘If I’m not down he pit or sleeping, I’m out with the pigeons’ said 36-year-old Joe, from 25 Seton Terrace Kennoway, who is to feature in a BBC documentary on the sport. His wife doesn’t mind too much, however, as she is also a keen pigeon fancier. The couple and their family were filmed about a month ago for the television programme ‘Forty Minutes’ which is to be screened next January.


This came about after the producers of the show contacted Joe, who writes for the British Homing World and is the pigeon correspondent for Radio Forth. We thoroughly enjoyed the filming, although it was difficult not to laugh with all the ‘neighbours watching,’ said Joe. My son Kevin aged 12 is pretty interested so he was shown with the birds the Murphy’s have 2 other children, Mark 15 and Elizabeth 4.


Joe has had some notable success since following in his father’s footsteps and taking up pigeon racing around 13 years ago. His racing birds have been released over 1000 miles away in Spain and have come in at very good placing in many races. As well as being on the Scottish National Flying Club committee, and race and clock convenor north of the Forth, Joe has also been involved in raising money for charity through the sport.  Spina Bifida and the War Blinded have received £1000 of pounds through these efforts.

Cloth Cap

Joe is looking forward to seeing the documentary and the picture it portrays of the pigeon fraternity. The ‘Cloth Cap Image’ is finished,’ said Joe. ‘I love it after the dirt, stoor and sweat of the pit, there is nothing better than breathing the fresh air and relaxing with the pigeons.

Great memories and here I am still writing articles for the pigeon press all these years later, great memories.


Pentlandhills Federation

News from Andy Miller who wrote; ‘Hi Joe, for our 7th race of the 2024 which was from Melton Mowbray on 25th May, this is a distance of 229-241 miles for the members. The convoy was liberated at 07:15 in a light east wind. Winning 1st federation for the second time this season is John Dowling and loft laddie Eric Willis. They timed their 3-year-old cock flying to nest on a velocity of 1649. The bird was bred by clubmate Barry Kinnear and gifted to them as a kit of 4 youngsters for building the base brickwork for his new loft. Previously he won 5th open federation open Billericay in 2022. Sire is a son of ‘Rio Reekie’ Barry’s SNFC Gold Award winner. Returns were excellent with only the odd bird missing on the day. Thanks once again Joe, kindest regards Andy.’

Winchburgh Club went to Kettering with the Central Fed (310 birds) transported by the Scottish National Flying Club in a total convoy of 3157 pigeons.

Taking 1st club, 1st federation is Peter Keogh with a 2-year-old Frans Zwols cross late bred hen having her 6th race of the season. This pigeon wasn't in a race basket until last summer when Peter started to train his young birds and she had 3 or 4 races as a trainer thereafter. This year she has flown celibate to every federation race but was reported in Brechin from the Ackworth Moor race two weeks previous before being released on the Sunday pm after an overnight rest, when the fog cleared, to return home on her own. She looked like on oil painting on return from the national as can be seen in the photograph. Taking 2nd club 2nd fed is Henry Borthwick with a home bred Janssen based widowhood cock that has scored regularly over the years including twice topping the Central Federation. 3rd club,15th fed is T & G Weir who are having a great season with a Cameron x Bosworth natural yearling cock sent sitting 10 days at basketing. He flew the federation young bird programme and the young bird national always being steady. Peter Keogh has kindly forwarded a photo of his 1st club 1st federation winner, well done Peter on these great results.

They are off a pair of stock pigeons; the sire is a son of Macalonie ‘Birthday Pair’ and the hen is a stock bird from Page Brothers of Pickering; she was trained as a yb and flown on roundabout.

Central & East of Scotland Amalgamation Federation Championship 2024

From the Kettering Old Bird race flown on the 1st June. THE RULES: All Federation’s compete against each other for weekly points to be the Central and East of Scotland Amalgamation Federation Champions!

The first 5 pigeons for each of the 11 (currently) Federations/Areas in the Amalgamation placed on a list, in order of highest velocity to lowest, and score points as follows for all 3 Amalgamation races flown.

(Currently approx. 10 Federations/Areas = 50 positions). First Place 60 points; 2nd - 55 points, 3rd - 52 points, 4th - 50 points, 5th – 48 points, 6th – 46 points, 7th – 44 points, 8th – 43 points, – dropping a point for each pigeon down to 50th place – 1 point.

The points total, for each race, of each Federation’s first 5 pigeons (if 5 are timed-in and included in the result) are added together to give a Federation total for each race, and then each Federation is placed in a league table in order of points. This will be updated after each of the 3 races, until the Champions are declared after the final race of the Amalgamation series. Only pigeons above 400ypm count. Only pigeons on the Amal result count. There are only points for 50 pigeons in each race this season. Any additional rules will be added as required, if necessary, in the spirit of the event, as it develops, to improve it. This means Club/Federation rivals become Federation team-mates for this event – so...which is the best Federation in the Amalgamation on the 1st June 2024 see below.!!!!!!!

Pentland Hills Federation:

News from Andy Miller who writes, ‘Hi Joe, This was our 8th race of the 2024 from the Kettering race flown on Saturday 1st June 2024 the convoy was liberated at 10-45 into a light north west wind, with 44 lofts sending 470 birds liberated with the Scottish National Flying Club. This was a distance of 255-268 miles for the members. Winning 1st federation are W Kinnear & sons Barry & Brian. They timed a 2-year-old Frans Zwols hen, who has raced full programme as youngster, was unraced as a yearling apart from competing in the Xmas race at the end of last year. Flown on a system where two hens are paired to the same cock (I’m led to believe this is Brian’s team). Breeding on one side; the granddam is bred by John Gladwin from a full brother of ‘King of Rekkem’ when paired to a daughter of ‘King of Rekkem’. On the other side the grand sire was purchased direct from a Frans Zwols and is a direct son of ‘Bert’. The partnership win the Five Times a Lady Trophy for 1st National Hens. Returns were excellent Joe a very good race; kindest regards Andy.  Barry & Brian were also 9th open. 2nd open with his fancied pigeon is J Dowling also from Danderhall (see photo of bird) 3rd open is K Wright also from Danderhall.
