Scarlet macaw tails are red on both sides.  I am unaware of a red and gold macaw tail.  But, these will get you a lifetime supply of red horns:   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matched-Pair-Lot-of-2-Scarlet-Macaw-Red-24-Tail-Feather-T1-/401219106761?hash=item5d6a85b7c9:g:JrkAAOSwo4pYGpA9

Looks like these will get you some red and gold barbs if that is really what you are looking for:    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Camelot-Scarlet-Hybrid-Macaw-Parrot-Tail-Feathers-Set-Lot-Bird-/262701536149?hash=item3d2a3b5395:g:m2AAAOSw4GVYGV-Y

Good links; however, I bet they can't ship Macaw out of the U.S.

What I was looking for was one of the members here to sell me about 6"/8" of a centre tail and I can pay for it and shipping to Ireland.

Might want to check with Feathersmc. He has tail feathers or sections of tail feathers for sale and would know if he can ship out of the US.  This site won't let me post links for some reason but if you google FeathersMC and click on "shop", then click "feathers" and look for "Parrot and Macaw", what your looking for is in there.
