STOLEN ENTRY

WAS THIS YOU??

We need some help in locating the person who sent an entry to 
Bertie Mc Guinness. The only thing that arrived in the post was an empty envelope that had been torn open. The likelyhood is there was money inside along with the entry. The envelope is stamped with the portlaoise mail centres mark dated 21/01/13. If you know anyone that sent an entry that may have come through portlaoise please get them to call Bertie on 041 9823350. Thanks in advance.

Two white Hares were a real treat and they came up the field together like two little  faries

More Pictures from Saturdays Coursing CLICK HERE



I managed to get to Sevehouses on the first day,  as usual the Hares were in great condition and im sure  Sunday produced some great coursing.  Id like to thank the Hare team for sending the two prized white hares up the field for me on Saturday so I could get a picture.

Two very competitive Trial Stakes with some hard luck stories too in the last rush to claim that golden ticket.

What a super meeting for that smashing brood Windgap View.......up until now she had a whole litter knocking on the door with 5 semi finalists......a nice change of luck to take both dog and bitch Trial Stakes.
A daughter of the fabulous Harbour View it looks like she could be a nice replacement.  Not a bad result for Mafi Magic either!
