For the second year, a Carriage Driving Event is being run in Dualla, Tipperary. Parking and Stabling in one field. Entertainment in the Horse & Hound Pub, Music Friday and Saturday, Barbecue Saturday night.
This was a new event last year organised by Don Walsh and the local ploughing association and will run along side a threshing festival with horse & pony show on the Sunday. All those that competed there last year loved the venue and the event despite the poor weather. We were looked after very well with BBQ and music provided on the Saturday night. So if you weren’t there last year we would recommend that you check it out this year. Not far from the Horse & Jockey exit off the M8. Usual classes.
