It's taken me about 5m attempts to login here today/yesterday, is it my dodgy internet connection?

Thanks for the picture the Gotchee. I reckon with the exception of the draught horse front left, those mares would probably stand close inspection nowadays. Amazing times for that sire!

The foal was a sire and is found in the pedigree of The Brianstan (1967)

Car park gets green light

FINGAL County Council has given permission for the development of another massive car park at Cloghran despite considerable opposition to the plan.
Park Developments Dublin Ltd have been granted 'temporary permission' for a period of ten years to demolish existing farm buildings at the former Cloghran Stud Farm and construct a car park with 2,715 spaces aimed at catering for airport traffic.
The site on Old Stockhole Lane would be turned into a 2,715 space, surface car park together with internal roads and bus parking, lighting, drainage and exit and entry control facilities.
The proposal also includes the upgrading of some 300 metres of Old Stockhole Lane and a 2.4 metre high palisade fencing on all boundaries to the seven hectare site.
The plans were recently discussed by councillors on the Malahide/Howth Area Committee where they were roundly rejected.
