The Papal visit had an impact last Sunday on agricultural show attendances. However, Clonakilty exhibitor PJ Lehane was blessed with an All Ireland win at Moate. His Munther filly saw off the challenge of 18 other foals to take the A. Browne final, part of Horse Sport Ireland’s showing championship series.

Philip Corithorne and John Fee judged the first of the ISA’s 2018 foal championships. The pair made sweeping changes to their initial line-up.
