ALL roads lead to Gortnaskehy Ballybunion for the annual North Kerry Harriers Point-to-Point races. The thriving North Kerry Harriers club, which is in existence over 43 years, always expect a huge entry for their meeting, where they currently report the course in excellent condition, with good, safe ground for the run.
A great day out for all keen horse racing enthusiasts on the lovely green land of Ballybunion.
Since their formation the hunt have raised lots of money for charities, and have donated some €12,500 to the various charities which include Enable Ireland, Pallatine Care Tralee General Hospital, Nano Nagle and Respite. They are extremely grateful to their many marvellous sponsors who have contributed generously to the meeting, and appreciate that without their help and support the meeting could not take place.
On the last Saturday in May at Gortnaskehy Ballybunion, commencing at about 4pm, they promote their annual point-to-point meeting, and the hard working hunt have left no stone unturned to ensure the successful staging of the meeting, which will attract owners, trainers and jockeys from Munster and beyond.
