To mark the 80th birthday of popular Co Meath horseman Hugh Leonard, the Ward Union Hunt masters and committee commissioned portrait photographer Sinead Ni Riain from Thurles in Co Tipperary to capture the occasion with the Ward Union hounds.

Leonard has had a remarkable career as a horseman, having hunted 71 successive seasons with the Ward Union pack. The image of him with the Ward Union hounds is one of many Ni Riain has on display at Tattersalls International Horse Trials this weekend.
