This week I attended an evening race meeting in Kilbeggan Co. Westmeath. Kilbeggan is a beautiful course for spectators, with a natural amphitheatre surrounding the horse racing circuit. I met many old friends, including my former colleague in the Dail, Paul McGrath, and the editor of the Irish Farmers Journal, Matt Dempsey. I was invited by the sponsors to present the trophy to the trainer of the winner of the big race, the Hackett Bookmakers Handicap Steeplechase.
