Christmas Drive

After a lapse of two years, the Christmas Drive from Spiddal to Moycullen was back again this year. It took place on Tuesday 27th and the temperature of 13 degrees made a welcome change from the -13 of last year that caused it’s cancellation. Newtown Moll’s Pride and Blue Smokey were the only driven Connemaras while Niamh Varley rode Coolin America. Margaret Gorton brought two ponies from Oughterard while Caroline Lydon came all the way from Carroroe. All welocomed the soup and sandwiches sponsored by Dooley’s Bar in Moycullen afterwards and with nearly 30 participants in all this year, this event is beginning to GROW!!
