The quality of point-to-point tracks has never been better. All have their own idiosyncrasies and the sport has been blessed with the new courses to come on stream in the last few years.

Ballinaboola, Borris House, Oldtown and the new course at Fairyhouse all complement the old established courses. However, I think the circuit lost something when racing ceased at Summerhill. Rumour has it that it may return in 2015 (fingers crossed it will!).
