On Sunday, July 1st, Damain Brady, my son-in-law, and I traveled from Strokestown, County Roscommon to Portmarnock just outside Dublin. Prior to our family's visit to Ireland, I had contacted Bernadette (Bernie) Kelly, Secretary of the Irish Harness Racing Clubs. As we arrived at the raceway we were greeted by Bernie and Joe Sheridan, an owner and trainer. During our day at the raceway we met wonderful people in a great family atmosphere. More to come!
