Cormac does us proud in Tubberbride

The problem with our miserable summer is that every patch of blue sky and ray of sunshine makes us cling powerfully to our beautiful Donegal homeland. The option of spending five or six hours on the road can never win when the alternative is staying at home to enjoy a rare patch of summer.

Thus Cormac was our club’s sole representative at today’s league final show at Tubberbride. He did us proud. Riding a horse borrowed from one of his Sligo friends, he cleared every obstacle in textbook fashion in the Intermediate class only to hear the judge announce the dreaded “one time fault”. He wasn’t the only culprit on the day.

His luck changed in the Intermediate & Above speed class when he stepped into his favourite “against the clock” mode and promptly recorded the fastest time, unfortunately with one fence down. Although Finola Murphy won the class with a clear round, Cormac’s performance was good enough to land him the yellow rosette in a large class. Very well done.
