Kilguilkey International CANCELLED

DUE to a long period of adverse weather the organisers of the new international CIC1* and 2* at Kilguilkey in Co. Cork have decided to cancel the event this year.

A spokesperson for the organisers said: “Horrendous weather for the past six weeks has caused areas of the new international tracks to become saturated in water. After talking to Eric Winters (Course Designer) along with Nicky Kelly (FEI Steward) and Christian Persson (TD) it was
agreed that we would be unable to run.

“The forecast for the next ten days isn’t looking any different so we have had no choice. We are terribly disappointed with this outcome as a lot of time and effort and, naturally, money has been put into this event, but we are under no illusion that this weather is affecting everyone.”

A spokesman for Horse Sport Ireland commented: “We are disappointed that Kilguilkey has been cancelled, as it was a new fixture on the International Event calendar for Ireland this year.”
