IRELAND LAUNCHES 2015 NATIONS’ CUP CAMPAIGN IN BELGIUM

Greg Broderick and Cameron Hanley

Best of luck to our customers Greg Broderick and Cameron Hanley who are part of Team Ireland Equestrian competing in the Nations’ Cup campaign at Lummen in Belgium on Friday May 1st.

Team Ireland Equestrian’s show jumping manager Robert Splaine commented: “ Obviously our ultimate goal this year is team qualification for the Rio Olympics through our performance at the European Championships at Aachen, Germany in August.  Lummen is the first points-scoring show allocated to us in the FEI Furusiyya League, and like all our Nations’ Cup shows this year it will provide valuable information that will help us select the best possible squad to send to Aachen when that time comes.”

Ireland, who battle against top teams from France, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy and Switzerland tomorrow, will line out as follows: Denis Lynch/Abbervail van het Dingeshof Cameron Hanley/Living The Dream Greg Broderick/MHS Going Global (ISH) Billy Twomey/Diaghilev The first round is scheduled to start at 3pm Irish time, with the second round due to begin at 4.30pm.
