We at were very sorry to learn of the passing of Patrick ‘Pats’ Moore.

Pats Moore was familiar to many on the point-to-point circuit as it was on his land that the Avondhu Foxhounds run their point-to-point at Knockanard.  

Knockanard has produced some top class horses over the years some of which include; Joacci, Missed That and Travino.

Pats Moore also won the Weatherbys Leading Breeders Award in 2005 and currently holds the record of breeding six individual horses to win in a point-to-point season. 

The Knockanard landowner has bred many winners over the years some of which include; Valley Rover, Anshampshire, Shanshampshire, Euro Gypsy, Optimus Prime and She’s Chancy.

We offer our deepest condolences to the Moore Family at this difficult time.
