Waringstown ODE -Sat.15th June.. “”CANCELLED””

Despite having times sorted, dressage arena in place, cones course set up and obstacles built, it is with regret that after consultation with the landowner this morning, we have decided to cancel Waringstown event on Saturday 15th June. The Lyons family would like to thank everyone who had entered to compete and those who offered their time to help on the day. We much appreciate the continuous support shown to our event. Also a big thank you to Sinead McIntyre for helping with the administration, and to Leslie Mulholland, Lewis Black, John Goodwin and Stanley Beattie for their help in preparing the event field and course.
Kind regards,
The Lyons family

Cuffesgrange Cancelled….

Regretfully, due to a combination of factors, we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Cuffesgrange 2019 event.
We thank everyone who has helped over the years to make Cuffesgrange a success and all the competitors who made the event such a memorable occasion over the past 8 years.
Our special thanks goes to the landowners, Liam & Breda Dunne, for their generosity in the use of their lovely farm and to all the neighbours who helped and facilitated the event.
Pat Manogue and Ger Hennessy
