Track Biography:

The Limerick Foxhounds were formed in 1734 and have their kennels in Clonshire, Adare, Co. Limerick.

Point-to-points have been a large part of the hunts calendar for many years.

The current Limerick race track was once under the ownership of the late Lord Harrington staged our point-to-point for many years and many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick foxhounds point-to-point of which we hope to see this continuing in the years to come.
