LAST Sunday, young children from all over Munster travelled to Lismore to compete in the Showjumping Primary Schools Team and Individual Championships held at the Ballyrafter Centre. It turned into a special day for Newtown Primary School in Waterford who scooped both the open team and individual trophies. Their team of Aoife Keena, Genevieve Heskin and Natasha Foley, topped the jump-off for the open team trophy and Natasha Foley also had a spectacular winning round in the individual.

There was a surprise result for the winning novice team from the combined schools of St. Mary’s National School, Grange, Youghal and Modeligo, as cousins John and Cian Gleeson, competing in their very first competition, convincingly win the novice trophy.
