and this hems to make holidays all the more enjoyable. If there is a symbol at all then it ought to be the horse. last sysek at the internationally famous Dublin Horse Show with an almost record attendance you could hear a pin drop during any of the international jumping competitions. Young and old, rich and pour, clergy and laity, experts and novices they all end up at the horse show.
This year it was especially exciting. The forecasts had not rated Ireland's chances too high, nor for that matter Switzerland's who despite coming third nearly gave Ireland a run for their money. Not everyone realised how close it might have been even on Ireland's last brilliant round by Dundrum. Tommy Wade was within two seconds of incurring a time fault and then had Switzerland managed a clear round it would hare ic,ulted in a jump off. Dundrum and Tommy Wade will lend themselves to ieeerat, the little horse with the not so little rider, as is common in the passing by word of mouth the horse will become smaller, the jumps bigger. the rider heavier, the opposition more intense, but the achievements can hardly be Unproved upon. When Tommy Wade finally finished his second clear round, so Ireland had won, the contrast from breathtaking silence to the explosion of cheers was a retie].
is too late for this year, but let me urge you to consider a holiday in Ireland for next year and if you do decide too then write for tickets at an early date. Apart from the Aga Khan cup day the entrance fee is very moderate: 7s. 6e1. will buy you the best seat in the Angelsea stand and then entrance to the showgrounds themselves is five shillings—half price for children. On Friday the stand ticket is V. There is hardly a more beautiful show ground, a more colourful jumping enclosure, and horses enough, 1,500 this year, to make you realise that the motor car may have its fanatics but it will not replace the horse in the affections of many of us.
