The new P2P.ie is here...

Irish Point-to-Point Services has launched a brand new look for its website P2P.ie, the latest development to the website which was first established 16 years ago in 2003.

Alongside the new design and layout to the desktop version of the website, it will for the first time become fully mobile responsive, replacing the previous mobile website, which was introduced in 2016, to display a small number of key pages in mobile format.

P2P.ie continues to be the most comprehensive source of information on Irish point-to-point racing with a database containing form on close to 60,000 horses, ensuring nowhere else offers the same level of information and coverage of the sport.

The new website features a large number of additions, increased site performance to speed up page loading, alongside the new layout, including:


COURSES


There is a brand new layout for the individual course pages, featuring a whole host of information about the over 70 current tracks.

Each course page features a map of the track layout, a comprehensive track guide, a list of recent fixtures at the track and for the first time, in point-to-points – the view of some of the sport’s top riders on each course.

Barry O’Neill, Ciaran Fennessy, Declan Queally, Derek O’Connor, Jamie Codd, John Barry and Mark O’Hare all describe how they like to ride each course and what type of horse it typically suits.

Members also have access to additional statistics for each course, including on the top riders at the course and on the percentage of winning favourites.


FIXTURES

The new fixtures page contains a greater amount of information than was previously available, particularly on courses, following the expansion of that section.

Each calendar month is displayed as a separate page, and within one click on this main fixtures page, you will be able to see the course direction, by hovering over the “Course” button, a one-line description of the course characteristics will appear, you can view news stories relating to that fixture, as well as viewing the fixture on GoP2P.ie for all the details on what to expect at a day at the races at the fixture by clicking the GoP2P logo beneath each fixture.
