What is a Point To Point?
- The match of 1752 between Cornelius O’Callaghan and Edmund Blake is credited as being the first recorded steeplechase run in Ireland. The steeple of St.John’s Church in Buttevant was the starting point, and some 4 ½ miles later over a course of natural obstacles the finish was St. Mary’s Church in Doneraile.
It is worth noting that the average number of winners to win on the Racecourse in Ireland and the UK that have graduated from Irish Point to Points is 63 per month which is more than 2 per day ensuring it is still the number one starting block for Human and Equine alike.
