Regional Secretary - Eugene Mullaney
Bordering Dublin, Kildare is famous for its racing. Kildare has the Curragh, Puchestown and Naas, which have racing all year round, including the famous Irish Derby held every June.
In Tully, Co Kildare, you also will find the Japanese Gardens and the Irish National Stud.
The Japanese Gardens, these gardens portray the journey of life from oblivion to eternity.
The National Stud in Tully was brought about in 1900, by a Scotsman named Colonel William Hall-Walker. Against his fathers wishes, Hall-Walker decided to breed thoroughbred horses at Tully.
