Commonwealth Games

Well done David Calvert on his selection to shoot for Ireland in the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. David narrowly missed out on the medals coming 4th in the Full-Bore Individual.

Although the BBC covered some of the small-bore, air and shotgun on TV and online streaming it was the left to the new broadcasting upstarts, the BBBC (Barry Buddon Broadcasting Corporation), to fill the void and provide excellent coverage to the full bore in near real-time. Well done BBBC.
