Ladies International Polo Tournament at Ballyhenry Estate
Pynck made the most of the weekend by heading south of Dublin to Ballyhenry Estate, and the entertainment started with Polo.
Ireland was playing the USA, and Ireland won on the day.
There was a second exciting game – The Rest of the World played against Ireland. The Rest of the World were too strong for Ireland on the day, and won that one.
A fund raiser also took place that day – a game featuring the jockeys versus the trainers. It was another entertaining watch, which the jockeys won. The funds raised went to injured jockeys.
There may be an argument to say that the jockeys and trainers match was a draw only playing two chukkas at a score of one all. Below you can watch some of the action from early on in the day.
