Rain storms Wexford Ireland polo tournament and the craic was mighty

WHILE the polo tournament in Wexford Ireland faced off against Storm Elsa and lost 1-nil, the cold and rainy evening that followed the first day of polo in fine, if overcast weather earlier this month was made all the warmer with an evening barbecue under cloud-covered stars.

With everyone sated on great food laid on at Bunclody Polo Club no one made much of a move to head away into the misty wet night, away from the warmth of the fire and good company.

Hats off to Sinead and Jennifer Doyle (l-r), Jennifer Healy, Hazel Valentine, Wexford professional polo player Tom Small, Emily Beere and Tom Harris for capping off the evening barbecue at Bunclody Polo Club with fun headgear!

Sisters Sinead and Jennifer Doyle had as much fun at the evening barbecue in Bunclody Polo Club as they did playing polo in their tournaments

All good things must come to an end, but it wasn’t until next morning the decision was made to postpone the outcome of the tournament when better weather prevails.
