Track Biography:

Scarteen has long been synonymous with Hounds, Hunting and hospitality. When Thady and Anne Ryan retired to New Zealand in 1987, Chris and Sue took the reins and have maintained this tradition.

This is the first year to host our at point-to-point meeting at our new track Comea. 

The Scarteen (Black and Tan) Hounds have been in the Ryan family for over 350 years and attract visitors from all over the world.

We have held our point-to-point at Kilfeacle on John Heaney’s land for over 15 years.  It has attracted many good horses over the years including the likes of Dorans Pride, Ned Kelly and First Lieutenant.
