Women's Racing

Orwell women have a growing presence in racing in the Dublin area and around the country, achieving and exceeding their goals at many different levels.

Time for a catch-up with the final rounds of Corkagh Park Ladies' Racing, with wins by both Aideen Keenan and Orla Hendron, both heading for a late season peak, and Mary Brady taking her first prize at the head of the B group! We also say goodbye to organiser Siobhán O'Connor, as after three years she's handing over the reins to Aideen Keenan and Lucan's Maria Mulvany.

Aideen Keenan notched up her most dominant win yet, soloing to victory in Clonmel at the weekend, ahead of the bunch gallop, which was taken by a flying Rachael Kaye-Mellor. Keenan followed that up with a tight second in Corkagh Park, which was also the scene of Helen Horan's début win from the B group! And last Thursday Conor Murnane pipped Arek Pierozynski for an excellent win R18 of the league on Dorey's Forge. Some men also raced in the Suir Valley 3 Day.

Aideen Keenan and Helen Horan were on the rampage in Corkagh Park again this week, each taking the prime in their respective races, and Horan going on to another super silver, and Keenan another fine win. Click for more!

Aideen Keenan was once again on the podium in Corkagh Park, and regular placer Helen Horan matched her bronze medal, all while the pair - along with Monica Marconi - organised the races and hosted a great evening of women's racing.

And while the vets are going through a strong streak, the women are not to be dismissed! Corkagh Park has been the scene of many an Orwell triumph, and recently it was the turn of Helen Horan to take silver, and the following week Aideen Keenan celebrated her first win of the series.
