Exhilarating action throughout the afternoon kept us all riveted to our seats while we enjoyed a drink and food from the club house and enjoyed the mini heatwave.
A very exciting final match for the trophy resulted in Rhone Hill taking the title with the presentation in the beautiful clubhouse.
Just shows you can compete any the tender age of 11…Charles Heffron with the trophy!
I had the pleasure of meeting Debbie Chapman and viewing her exhibition of her work in the clubhouse which can be viewed in full on http://www.debbiechapman.com/ well worth checking out.
Michelle Regazolli Stone is a regular spectator with her family to cheer on her husband unfortunately on the losing side in the final but still made time to talk to me about her passion for the sport and a super environment to bring her boys to watch dad play and enjoy a hot lunch and a drink in the sun.
A fabulous day of sport, people, good food, drinks and amazing weather in an iconic building in the park and thank you to Kim Mullahey the All Ireland Polo Club Honorary Communication officer for the invite.
