National Winter Finals 2015, a North Munster perspective

Published 20/04/2015

With several North Munster members sadly out of action this season, it was a small but determined group of six competitors (plus wonderful entourage of supporters and friends) that headed to Cavan to contest the National Winter Finals on 11th and 12th April this year. At the end of a very enjoyable weekend their determination had paid off as all six went home with ribbons and prizes!

Congratulations especially to Tara Oliver and Leeanne Sheeran-Hayes:

Tara, who had a baby girl just six months ago, competed three horses from Preliminary to Grand Prix and was placed with all of them. She was Reserve Champion in the Preliminary (Category 2) class, Reserve Champion in the Intermédiaire II class and missed out on Reserve in the Grand Prix on the collectives only.

Leeanne, competing in Cavan for the first time, took the Reserve Champion slot in the huge Preliminary (Category 1) class with scores of 69.13% on day one and 73.64% on day two.

Main results as follows:

Tara Oliver Springtime Boy Preliminary (Category 2) RESERVE CHAMPION
Furst Romance Preliminary (Category 2) 5th
Earlspark Loretto Intermédiaire II RESERVE CHAMPION
Earlspark Loretto Grand Prix 3rd
Leeanne Sheeran-Hayes Midnight Hope Preliminary (Category 1) RESERVE CHAMPION
Robyn O’Neill Belsasser Novice (Category 1) 5th
Judy Devine Justadream Elementary (Category 1) 5th
Lucy Cusack Winky Tinky GLN Intermédiaire I 4th
Zara Murphy George Boy Under 25 Championship 7th

North Munster’s Summer Season gets underway on Sunday 24th May in Clonlara Equestrian Centre, we look forward to seeing you all there.
