Belmount Health Foods will have a package of health products for the lady riders, there are also a range hampers which include wine and beauty products from Madigans chemists and Aldi Carrick-on-Suir, cheese hamper from Tullahey Farm, Forever Living Products from Tessa Gunn and flowers for each of the riders also.
The point-to-point committee have also worked hard on getting some prizes for the Hotel Minella Novice Riders race, the winning rider will receive a voucher for the Mespil Hotel in Dublin. The placed riders in the race will receive a gift from Simon Porter Saddlery. Madigans Chemist and Red Mills will also be supplying some terrific prizes on the day.
There has been plenty of work done on the track and it’s in great condition. Have a look at the below drone footage of the track.
