New Members

We would like to welcome 2 new members , Gillian Parke & Hazel Mahoney .
Gillian will be riding her grey Connemara mare “Minty” at Primary Level Grade. Hazel will be joining us as an “associate” member whilst being a member of Letterkenny RC also .
We look forward to welcoming both ladies into our monthly club activities !!

Dates for this years annual NW Spring league were finalised at last nights meeting of the Donegal Clubs. They are as follows-

Week 1| Sunday 8th February

Week 2| Sunday 15th February

Week 3| Sunday 1st March

Week 4| Sunday 8th March

FINAL | Sunday 22nd March

As in previous years the league will take place at Templemore EC on the outskirts of Derry, and the four clubs will take it in turns to run each leg of the league.
This year will see a slight change to the points scoring system in that it will be your best points from 3 out of the 4 shows before the final that will be counted towards your total score , there will also be double points up for grabs at the Final.

There will be a four week gap between the end of the Spring League & the National Hunter Trials, just enough time to get yourself & your horse finely tuned in to a healthy cross country mode!!!

With only a few hours to wait……. The day of our clubs TV debut has finally arrived, tune in to TG4 @9:30pm. For anyone abroad or those who may not have the TG4 channel do not despair, the programme can be viewed online using the TG4 player, go to website http://www.TG4.ie
