Rathcannon Point-to-Point

Sunday 5th April @ 2.30pm
  • Rathcannon 810x456

The County Limerick Hunt will hold their annual point-to-point meeting at Rathcannon just outside Athlacca.

Point-to-points are horse racing in its purist form and you will often hear it described as the grassroots of horse racing in Ireland.

This is because unlike the racing you may see on television which takes place at permanent racecourses like Leopardstown, point-to-point racing takes place at what are effectively pop-up courses right around the country.

Rathcannon point-to-point is the perfect day out for all the family in the Irish countryside and where you will get to witness the future stars of the racing industry make their introduction into competitive racing.

Our venue has brilliant viewing facilities for race-goers. Spectators can get right up close to the horses, watch them being saddled before being paraded in the ring.

Unlike most racecourses, spectators can stand beside one of the fences and feel the power of the horses as they jump a fence in full flight or get close to the winning post for a bird eye view of the thrilling action.

Our track also lends itself well for picnics from the boot of your car whilst not missing out on any of the action!


Rathcannon, Athlacca, Co. Limerick
