Track Biography:

Formed in 1734, the Limerick Foxhounds have their kennels in Clonshire, Adare, Co. Limerick and are a very well established pack in the West of Ireland.

Our annual point-to-point has been a large part of the hunts calendar for many years and continues to be a vital race meeting on the Spring circuit.

The current Limerick race track staged our point-to-point for many years when under the ownership of the late Lord Harrington. Many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick Foxhounds point-to-point both when racing on the past venues and presently at Rathcannon.

Our race meeting is situated just 40 minutes from Limerick city and just half an hour from the scenic town of Adare, making a trip to Rathcannon point-to-point part of a perfect Family Sunday.
