A day at the races – Second Point-to-Point of the season takes place in Stradbally this Sunday

Laois Hunt Point to Point

Laois Foxhounds hold their second Point-to-Point this Sunday, May 14, on the grounds of Stradbally Hall, the venue for the fixture for over 20 years.

There are six races with the first race at 2.30pm.

Ease of access and the unique setting make this a very popular event.

Stradbally Hall, as it appears today, dates from the middle of the 19th century. It has been the seat of the Cosby family since the reign of Edward VI.

It is a unique picturesque setting where spectators have a view of the full course which runs over beautiful parkland.

One of the joys of point-to-point racing is the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the future stars of Irish racing.

With a superb view of the track, this event is ideal for those who would like to enjoy, weather permitting, a picnic while watching the racing.

Entry is €10 (€5 for OAPs) and parking, which is free, is available very close to the final fence and finish line.
