“We will have something for all ages on Sunday, as there will be free children’s entertainment which includes a bouncy castle.

"The younger hunt members have organised a dog show on the day which will cost €3 to enter for one class or €5 for two classes. Classes include 'the dog I would like to take home' and a class for the best young handler.

“On the day there will be a crepe van, ice-cream van, barista style coffee cart as well as a fast food outlet. If race goers don’t want hot food on the day, some of our hunt members will be serving sandwiches, cakes and other sweet treats in the catering tenth.
