The Irish Kennel Club’s Cloghran showground suffered grass and ground damage at the weekend after a ‘Cool Nights’ custom car event. It is thought that the outdoor rings area was damaged after visitors to the event removed cones which were in place to prevent cars using the grassy areas in front of the venue.
In an e-mail to OUR DOGS earlier this week Mrs Wendy Jackson, PRO to the IKC commented, ‘Of course what has occurred is regrettable but if the showgrounds are hired out, and they are, then there are risks attached. Our contract with any group who rent the grounds would naturally cover us against any damage.
‘These people have hired the premises from us on two previous occasions without problems and this time unfortunately the grounds were subjected to unreasonable use resulting in damage to the grass.’
