A massive thank you to Wicklow Bay for hosting such a wonderful nationals! Unfortunately the weather was not on our side with torrential rain forcing the tournament to be postponed to the 10th and 11th of September, due to the threat of stormy weather the decision was made to turn the weekend tournament into a one-day tournament. However, the evening back was beautiful, and a stunning end to the 2016 season!
There was great craic to be had and despite some slippery matches and a few tumbles, every team we sent out were fabulous and tried their best!
Our teams were:
- A Grade: Paul O’Leary, Sam Hanlan and Debbie Harris.
- B Grade: – Richard Donnelly, Cillian Boland and Tom O’Malley.
– Izzy Alken, Paul Boland and Amy Buckley.
- C Grade: Theo Boland, Cian Boland, Rosie McKeown, Lauren O’Malley, Naomi Crowley and Brendan Liddy.
- D Grade: Lucy Palmer, Siobhán O’Keeffe, Jonathan Paul Carrol.
All of our teams played out of their skin and we are so proud of how far some of them have come in just the space of a season in terms of their skill! To see our results from the tournament head over to the ‘Tournament Info’ tab!
Until next year guys and we hope to see faces both old and new around the club, at tournaments, and a big thank you to everyone who made this season so enjoyable and of course, we thank our horses who have carried us so far and worked so hard with us this season and for being our partners.
