Horse Racing

Point to Point races are held by the Hunt committees in this area every Sunday from January to May.

Many top class Steeple Chasers started on this circuit. The meetings are always worth a visit, you will experience the Irish craic and a very warm welcome. Bring warm apparel and Wellington boots as it can get very cold and muddy.

 A 30 minute drive from here will take you to the villages of Buttevant and Doneraile, where in 1767, the first Steeple Chase was held. A number of riders set out from a start position level with the point of the steeple at Doneraile church and raced to the point of the steeple at Buttevant church, through lands owned by the St. Ledger family. 

Thus Point to Points  and  Steeple Chasing were born and in 1793 these terms were added to the Oxford Dictionary.

There are also excellent Race tracks nearby:- Mallow, Clonmel, Tipperary and Limerick.


There are Greyhound tracks in Cork City, Youghal and Clonmel.

There is a very strong Hare Coursing body in Munster.
