THE final class of the 2018 Clifden show was the perfect curtain closer of the jam-packed week which saw visitors from as far as Australia and North America descend on the west of Ireland town to see the native breed at their flagship show.

The exciting Puissance class attracted nine entries on this occasion to battle it out for the €1,000 prize on offer to the winner. That prize money stayed local as Renvyle rider Talitha Diamond produced the best performance of the class to win outright in the fourth round.
