John Flood and the Irish Pony Club Tetrathlon Committee would like to thank to all of the sponsors, supporters and volunteers who helped out at the Joe Duffy Volvo Tetrathlon Championships last weekend.

Your expertise, kindness and good humour helped to make this an extremely successful and enjoyable weekend. Thank you to Tattersalls and Trinity Sport and Leisure Club, Donaghmede for the use of their excellent facilities.  Tattersalls is a first rate venue and we are grateful for the use of such excellent facilities for our championships.

Once again, more than two hundred competitors arrived in Tattersalls last weekend to represent their Branches. 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 primary sponsors, Joe Duffy Volvo, who have joined us in sponsoring this championship for the first time.  It has been great to work with you over the past few weeks and we hope to continue to develop this partnership.  Thank you also to Berney Bros Saddles for their support with the prizes for this competition and finally to Mel Doyle photography for his sponsorship of two beautiful canvases.

Special thanks to David Byrne and all of the Area 7 Branches for all of their hard work. We are extremely grateful to all the shooting stewards, swimming stewards, running stewards and 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 Tetrathlon 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.
