Ballynagarrick Report 2017
Saturday 20th May saw the first Northern Ireland Carriage Driving Association Event of the season at Ballynagarrick, , Co.Armagh by kind permission of the Duke Family. The event was organised by club member David Morrision and helped by his good friend Cecil. There were 18 competitors, some of who enjoyed an overnight stay on Friday.
The weather was kind with just one shower between the Dressage/Cones and the Marathon/Obstacles, so everyone had a dry drive round in the afternoon. The stewarding was done by staff from Tesco’s who did an excellent job. A collection was taken up for Children’s Cancer, Daisy Lodge, Newcastle, which gives respite to parents and families of children suffering from terminal illness. The amount raised was substantial Mrs Miriam Duke very kindly, presented the rosettes to the winners.
David would like to thank everyone who helped and supported him in his first event and looking forward to the next one at Waringstown on Saturday 10th June.

Poona McNally’s Special “Fun Weekend” in our case Long Fun Weekend, as some of us arrived, to a great welcome, on Thursday and stayed until Monday. Most came on Friday or Saturday.
Poona was assisted by her husband Randall and her son Robert who did most of the cooking. We had a super breakfast each morning and a delicious dinner each evening.
A full dressage arena and a cones course plus a couple of obstacles, for use at any time.
The road drive, with it’s great views, could be 7klms or 17klms.
Super sunshine and everyone I spoke to had a wonderful time. The auction was a big success and raised funds for CDI.
