Derek Walsh from County Waterford has had a season of great success having fantastic cards and winning both Skibbereen races this season, 1st Open INFC Old Birds and 1st Open INFC Young Birds, not sure that was ever done before, don’t think it was, although Derek Walsh is well placed to give it another go. The YB winners for 1st & 2nd were on the same yard, so equal 1st and added to the OB 1st makes that THREE! – That will probably never be beat!
