SHOW JUMPING: Pessoa names Nations Cups squads
on 28 May 2019
Rodrigo Pessoa names his squads for Nations Cup at Rome and Denmark this weekend

FOR the second time in the space of seven days, Ireland will field teams at two Nations Cup venues this coming weekend, starting with the five-star Italian Nations Cup in Rome on Friday, followed by the three-star Nations Cup at Uggerhaine in Denmark on Saturday.

Irish team manager Rodrigo Pessoa saw his side make a solid start to their campaign in Europe Division 1 last Friday when finishing fourth at La Baule in France. Friday’s fixture in Rome is not part of the Europe Division 1 series but it does provide an excellent opportunity to try out some new combinations.

The competition takes place at the spectacular setting of Piazza di Siena, within the public park at the Villa Borghese in the heart of Rome.

The Irish squad for the Italian Nations Cup in Rome, where Michael Blake will be chef d’equipe, is as follows:

Louth’s Mark McAuley with Jasco VD Bisschop – owned by Eva Lundin

Waterford’s Anthony Condon with SFS Aristio – Anthony Condon & John Hales

Meath’s Cian O’Connor with PSG Final – owned by Ronnoco Jump Ltd

Offaly’s Darragh Kenny with Important De Muze – owned by Kerry Anne LLC

Waterford’s Peter Moloney with Chianti’s Champion – owned by Team Harmony


Fresh from a superb victory in the Drammen Nations Cup in Norway last Friday, four of Ireland’s winning team travel to Uggerhaine in Denmark where the three-star Nations Cup takes place on Saturday.

Taylor Vard will be Ireland’s chef d’equipe in Uggerhaine where the squad in full is:

Kilkenny’s Susan Fitzpatrick with Fellow Castlefield – owned by Sharon Fitzpatrick

Laois’s Aidan Killeen with Fair Play – owned by H.P.J. Verdellen

Kilkenny’s Ger O’Neill with Castlefield Vegas (ISH) – owned by Martin Egan

Tyrone’s Jenny Rankin with Bennys Legacy – owned by Deirdre Bourns

Galway’s Sofie Slattery with Valentine Du Bois Pinchet – owned by Ecurie Dehalais

The Irish Show Jumping team is sponsored by Devenish and The Underwriting Exchange
