NOW heading into its seventh renewal, and once again featuring Carol Gee’s Kilkenny-based Fernhill Sport Horses as the title sponsor, the Fernhill Sport Horses (Mallow) international event at Kilguilkey House in Co Cork is due to kick off on Friday.

Recognised for the quality of ground preparation, the well-built courses, the friendly atmosphere and the overall hospitality, the popular venue unsurprisingly attracts an ever-increasing number of overseas riders.
