Jamie saddles up for the Dowth Point-to-Point and Country Fair

Top Irish amateur jockey Jamie Codd helped kick off the countdown to the Dowth Point-to-Point and Country Fair, set to take place on Sunday 28th October at Dowth, Brú na Bóinne, County Meath.

Organised and sponsored by agri-technology company Devenish in conjunction with the Meath Hunt and Tara Harriers, the event celebrates the very best of country life with a jam-packed offering of racing, food and family fun in the historic setting of Dowth, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

5,500-year-old tomb in Meath the ‘find of a lifetime’

One of the richest tapestries of archaeology in Ireland, the Boyne Valley is the gift that just kept giving this summer, with three separate discoveries to send experts worldwide into an excited tizzy.

Thousands will flock to see a significant Neolithic passage tomb cemetery, unearthed during works at Dowth Hall in Co Meath and revealed to the world in July.

A kerbstone at the site is heavily decorated with Neolithic carvings and represents one of the most impressive discoveries of megalithic art in Ireland in decades.
