Kilfinane Open Coursingbefore the off
PICTURES FROM THE DAY
Sunday I had a fabulous day out Open Coursing in Kilfinane. This is the second season running for this new Club and its going from strength to strength. There was a huge turnout on what was the worst weather weekend we have had this year but it didnt stop the fabulous hunts.
Jim O`Brien Cup, winner, Next To Me, in his first run
Kilfinane has followed Kildorrery Open Coursing Club with a policy of Muzzling its runners and I must say I totally agree.....its my new year wish that all Open Clubs will follow this line. The Coursing was super.....the hounds chased hard and the hares went on their way unharmed.

I must say there were some great hunts and all dogs will have slept well in their beds that night.....along with the catchers!
