Track Biography:

Established in 1942 the Dungarvan Farmers point-to-point still operates on its original site at Kilossera, just two kilometres outside of Dungarvan town centre.

The prime agricultural land beneath “the hill” creates a wonderful natural amphitheatre for one of the South East’s oldest and most famous point-to-points.

Run across the Curran, Sheehan and Kiely lands for generations, the Kilossera point-to-point has a strong tradition of future stars coming to the fore. Previous luminaries include Grand National winner Monty’s Pass, Lexus Chase winner Pandorama, and RSA Chase winner Jessies Dream.

Kilossera has also been a happy hunting ground for young jockeys such as Ted Walsh, Adrian Maguire and Davy Russell having ridden winners here during their careers.
