Message from our Club Secretary Berry McCrae, —

“On behalf of the members of the Northern Ireland Carriage Driving Association, we would like to express our sincere thanks to the HSI Carriage Driving Section and in particular to the Hughes family for organising and hosting the 2nd All-Ireland Championships.  Without all your hard work and dedication, our sport could not survive and we greatly appreciate the efforts you all made to ensure the Southern event was such a success, in spite of the atrocious weather conditions! 

In particular, we would like to say many thanks to Hazel, who as well as backstepping for John, was still able to remain calm and cheerful whilst organising and coping with all the problems  as Event Secretary”.  
Sincere Thanks to you all.
