AFTER all those dreary days of lockdown, it was such a privilege to be able to make the trip to Clonshire to see the County Limerick Foxhounds.

There can be few places in Ireland, or indeed further afield, more in tune with the world of the horse and particularly foxhunting. As we drove through the park, there were a couple of riders having a school over a few of the many schooling fences there.
