Thursday 16/05/24

The President of the NIPA has asked me to post the following , to quell any rumours that are out there , racing the weekend of 25 May weather permitting , will be from the racepoints of Skibbereen and Fermoy.

Nipa 2nd Fermoy O/B - The NIPA will race mark as normal on Friday for a possible release in Fermoy on Saturday.

Ulster Federation will hamper Friday night for a possible race from Fermoy on Saturday.

East Down Combine will hamper as planned tomorrow night for the Skibbereen Classic on Saturday.

There seems to be some confusion regarding the IHUNFC race programme ( Channel) among members and observers alike.
Due to a change in circumstances regarding transport, the channel programme now starts on June 1st from Dale, followed on the 8th June from Penzance, then, on the 15th June Penzance Old Bird and Yearling National, and the Final race for Old Birds will be from St Malo on June 28th. Hope this post helps to clear up the situation. Francis Corcoran PO.
