ROSCOMMON

Another St Stevens Day meeting that was put back............A bonus for me , Ive never managed to take in a Roscommon metting as it clashes with my local club.     Run at the excellent Roscommon racecourse. the fercilities are first class and the club a very friendly one, who run a first class meeting.   The hares were in great order and we saw some good work ...........great meeting

judge Paul Horan
The only complain could be about the fog..........but strangely this never seems to cause a problem to the dogs.  Not one unsighted course..........and the same could be said about the foggy day at Urlingford.. It can only be that coursing in the fog takes away other distractions from a dogs vision and they only see the hare in front.
With this in mind..........im sorry for the quality of the photos.......but after the last month its great to get out coursing again
