The AIRC’s 1-Day Event Championships will be held at Annaharvey Farm, Tullamore, on Sunday 12 September. Anybody may compete in the National classes at the event, provided they have competed in a cross country event during the season. However, to compete in the Championship classes you must qualify at one of eight qualifiers throughout the country. Last year Letterkenny’s Nadine Gallagher successfully qualified for the Intermediate Championship. On the big day she was deprived of almost certain victory when Molly slipped and fell in the show jumping phase when on course for a beautiful clear round. Sharon O’Donnell and Libby Carton competed in the national classes.
