The best Junior Showjumpers in Europe have been in Millstreet for the last week, and the standard of jumping was very high. It’s been a great week. We now wish them all a safe trip home. Below is a small section of the videos and photos from the Championships.
What superb memories we have of the recent World Mounted Games Team Event Parade through Millstreet Town followed by the truly marvellous Liam O’Connor Concert at Green Glens. Lots of people regretted not being able to be present for this historic happening. Well….the fantastic news is…..there is going to be another hugely colourful Parade this Tuesday evening (26th July 2016) marking the official opening of theFEI European Jumping Championships for Young Riders, Juniors and Children on Horses. The Parade begins at 6.30pm (on this occasion it will be a Parade of the many international Riders following the Millstreet Pipe Band and the horses will not be participating in this Parade). We thank Caitríona at Green Glens for all the relevant information below. We encourage all to come to view the magnificent Parade and then to proceed to Green Glens for Liam O’Connor’s brilliant Concert where he is joined by a host of superbly talented Musicians. We thank Millstreet Community Council and all at Green Glens for coordinating this amazing Millstreet Experience. (S.R.)
