KILKENNY COURSING EVENING


We had a great evening of fun on Wednesday.........a card of Finals,  all sponsored by local Coursing Clubs brought the coursing world out on a bitter cold evening.

It was great for the crowd to get a chance to see this years Derby Champion, Adios Alonso. A worthy winner...........he was looking in great form and was ready for a run. Our thanks go to Richie Maher and Trevor Connors for bringing him along


Adios Alonso


Highlight of the evening was the Erinstone Coursing Bred Unraced final.  From the offset this has been dominated by the Codd Family . With three runners by their sire Cushie Theory going through to the final...........It was no surprise the see them take the first three places in the Final.
