I was astonished to read that the Green Party is opposing the introduction of a cycle path/greenway between Midleton and Youghal (Irish Examiner, October 22) and I begin to understand why it is in such a low position in the polls. You would imagine the Green Party would enthusiastically endorse the project.

Mesmerising. That’s really the only way that one could justifiably describe the performance of the Michael Winters-trained For Carmel at yesterday’s well-attended Muskerry Foxhounds point-to-point fixture on Jack Murphy’s farm at Aghabullogue as the towering bay hardly broke sweat on his initial career outing in the five-year-old geldings’ maiden.

The Hollinwell is developing into one of the very best point-to-pointers on the circuit and the British-bred recorded his fourth success of the season by destroying the opposition with his owner/trainer Eugene O’Sullivan’s 17-year-old son Eoin in the open lightweight at yesterday’s Duhallow Foxhounds Kildorrery fixture at Rockmills Stud.

There have been some outstanding performances from young horses in point-to-points over the past few weeks and, on Saturday at the Kildare Foxhounds meet at Punchestown, it was Liam Burke’s turn to introduce a potentially-decent prospect in Sumos Novios who posted a stellar debut performance in a vintage renewal of the five-year-old geldings’ maiden.
