Munster Championships to go ahead

The Munster Committee of the Show Jumping Association of Ireland last night (Monday, Sept 2) decided it had no option but to proceed with this Saturday's Munster Championships Finals.

The committee had been requested to postpone the showcase after it emerged it clashed with a similar event in Connacht.

Munster Committee chairperson, Joan Keane said: "We considered the request, but felt we had to proceed due to the lack of alternative dates. It is regretful this situation has arisen, but we were left with no choice."

The championships, which will be held in Cahir, boast a prize-fund of 17,000 euro and have attracted the top riders from every county in the province, including six-times national champion Francis Connors and European pony bronze medallist Anthony Condon.

The feature classes of the event will be the Kedrah House Stud five-year-old final and Sherry Fitzgerald six-year-old final, both with prize-funds of 3,000 euro. Horses in these classes will join the hundreds of others who have qualified for the championships throughout the summer as riders converge on the Tipperary town for what promises to be a day of top-class showjumping.
