“What have a racehorse, an American ambassador, a world-famous horse trainer and a sports complex got in common? Larkspur Park is a sports complex in Cashel. Vincent O’Brien trained the horse Larkspur to win the Epsom Derby. The horse was owned by Raymond Guest, the US ambassador – he donated the money to buy a field in the centre of Cashel. Groups have visited Wimbledon, Roland Garros and Saint Émilion. Our success is due to our ability to change and adapt to the changing needs of the people of Cashel.”
Nominated by Rosemary Maher
