Fethard horse museum to be officially opened

A new horse museum in Fethard is already proving extremely popular with locals and visitors alike.

The Fethard Horse Country Experience offers visitors the opportunity to discover the rich culture and heritage of the region.

The museum is supported by Failte Ireland and is home to an exhibition on ‘Sadler’s Wells’, one of the most successful stallions of all time.

It will be officially opened by Minister Heather Humphreys this evening along with world renowned composer Andrew Lloyd Webber who owns nearby Kiltinan Castle.

Manager of the museum Shannon Forest says the exhibition in the Tholsel building on Main Street is the culmination of a lot of hard work and is proving a hit already.
