Saturday 27th February 1997

Down Memory Lane
A few local racing enthusiasts intend, with the permission of the landowners, to stage a nostalgic walk over pointmtoWintxaa=U2"1 ld pointto pointracecour at Tullamaine. Part of the old course has been lost to land reclamation, fortunately most of the track, including the famous big banks, still remain. Interesting souvenirs such as racecards, etc., and stories connected with Tullamaine Races would be most welcome.

The Tullamaine Races were usually held on a Wednesday. The Sunday prior to the race date was traditionally referred to as Walking Sunday.

The Sunday prior to this year's Tipperary Point-toPoint would be the most probable date of the walk, commencing from Tipperary Raceway. Billy Doyle, Rosegreen, is chief organiser.
