Killeagh Point to Point Shoot – 18/1/2015

Joe Keniry-3

The second ECCG shoot on 18/01/2015 was at the Knockane track outside Killeagh where the Killeagh Harriers annual P2P meeting was held for the third consecutive year. The weather conditions were ideal with bright sunny skies. Despite the cold element and mucky conditions the event was well supported and attracted a huge crowd from the local area. There were six races on the day with an average of 3 to 12 horses competing in each covering a 3 circuit course over a 3 mile distance. The last race of the day saw 24 horses compete the course but only 21 jockeys!

ECCG members were on hand suitably attired in wellingtons and warm clothing to capture some challenging equine sporting images.

Some great images were captured on the day including the jockeys and horses in the parading area and jumping over the second and third fence up on the hill area of the track.
