Track Biography:

Clonakilty’s annual Point-to-Point races are held on historic Inchydoney Island on the lands of Leslie & Emily Beamish who kindly provide us with this fabulous venue.  Having started as a millennium project, the Clonakilty Point-to-Point meeting has grown beyond all expectations and is now regarded as one of the most outstanding meetings of its kind in Munster.

Since moving to our present location on Inchydoney Island, we have attracted even larger crowds from both near and far, which has helped even further in presenting Clonakilty as a wonderful place to visit and stay. This event is not only for horse enthusiasts, but has also proven to be a great family day out over the years.

We are very lucky to have a large committee of hard working volunteer racing enthusiasts, with each member being more dedicated than the next, under the stewardship of the Clerk of the Course.

Our Committee at Clonakilty Point to Point like to recognise and celebrate some unique achievements.  In the past we have done well with “Imperial Call”, “Newmill”,” Why So Mayo” and “Sir Frederick”.  We have also had a horse called “On the Fringe” which was bred locally by Pat Tobin who has created an incredible record by winning the Hunter Chases at Cheltenham, Aintree and Punchestown in 2015, repeating first again in 2016.  Horses rarely win at these three meetings, but his mother (Love & Porter) was sired by “Sheer Grit” and this fellow certainly has that.
