The Killinick Harriers point-to-point has been held at the costal track of Lingstown since 1962. The point-to-point is said to have commenced in the late 1800’s. The previous venues being Foleys of Granask, Harveysglass, Knockhowlin and Cousinstown.
The track itself is a free-draining track and runs down to the Irish Sea on one side and Tacumshane Lake on the eastern side. Over the years there has been many successful trainers and jockeys partnerships forged at Lingstown. An example of this is Padge Berry and his nephew John and, in recent years, William Codd and his brother Jamie, who is one of the leading amateur riders in Ireland both on the track and in point-to-points.
Lingstown has been a successful hunting ground for the Wexford trainers of Colin Bowe, Denis Murphy and the Doyle brothers, to name but a few. There are two meetings held there each season, one in November and one on the second Sunday in March. We hold our banks race at each fixture which is always a great spectacle to watch.
Lingstown has produced many stars over the years such as the 2017 Aintree Grand National winner, One For Arthur and the former Kerry National winner Rath Of Titans as well as Marie Banrigh who was sold for a record breaking £320,000 at the Cheltenham festival sale after winning at Lingstown a few days previous.
