Irish Pony Club News

The Irish Pony Club Eventing Committee would like express their sincere thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who helped out at the Connolly’s RED Mills Eventing Championships in Ballindenisk last weekend.

Your expertise, kindness and good humour helped to make this an extremely successful and enjoyable weekend.  Thank you to the Fell Family and all of the staff in Ballindenisk for their support and assistance over the past few days, months and weeks.  Ballindenisk is a wonderful venue and we are very grateful for their permission to use its facilities.

More than three hundred competitors descended on Ballindenisk this past weekend.  We couldn't have organised this successful event without the support of many volunteers.  It would be impossible to mention everyone.  However, there are a number of groups and people that we would like to particularly mention.

Firstly, to our wonderful sponsors, Connolly's RED Mills.  Connolly's RED Mills have generously supported the Irish Pony Club Eventing qualifiers and championships for a number of years.  They have been unfailing in their support and this year also sponsored the Under 12 RED Mills League Points Competition.  John, Jane, Lauren and all of the staff in Connolly's have always been extremely professional, helpful and willing to assist.  Thank you very much to everyone in Connolly's RED Mills. 

Special thanks to Catherine Healy, Helena Hurley and all of the Area 5 Branches for all of their hard work.  We are extremely grateful to all the dressage and show jumping judges, cross country fence stewards, scorers, safety officers, hospitality stewards, parking stewards, commentators and the many volunteers who helped out during these championships.  Your hard word and dedication is invaluable. 

Well done to all who competed, their back up teams and everyone who travelled to support and encourage their branches.


We would be grateful if you could take the time to answer a few short questions regarding the Eventing Championships.  We would like to gather your suggestions and feedback from the weekend.  This information is invaluable and will allow us to improve and grow the event into future.
