A look back at 2016
2016 was a busy year and saw the first ever running of the all Ireland league. The league was run over five weeks and the open winners were Kildare while the U17 title was won by Co.Cork. Many of our members traveled to the UK and Europe for International Competitions however the main event of the year was the hosting of the WTC which was held in the Green Glens Arena in Millstreet Co.Cork.
These are only some of the achievements of Irish riders competing abroad this year. The numbers of riders competing at the top level continues to grow every year with 26 Irish riders competing at the World Individuals this year, 25 riders travelling to the Welsh Team Championships (Making up teams across all age groups), 16 riders competing at the World Pairs, as well as 2 teams and numerous Individual riders travelling to Germany to compete at the European championships.
