Brilliant aerial pictures show how impressive the new Clondalkin Equine Club is

A new equine club opened in Clondalkin earlier this year, and the latest pictures shared online by a local photographer show just how impressive the facility is.

Ben Ryan captured the shots while the sun shone down on the club, which was built at a cost of €550,000.

Plans for the project had been four years in the making – starting out when a group of local horse owners got sick of seeing equine abuse in the wider community.

Work on the Ballyowen Park facility was funded with €500k by the Department of Agriculture and €50k by South Dublin County Council.

Speaking when it opened, local People Before Profit TD Gino Kenny said: “This is truly a great day not only for the Clondalkin Equine Club but for the community.

“Individual members of the club went above and well beyond in making this a reality. It will give young horse owners a place of their own to stable and mind their horses in a safe environment. It’s a good equine story for a change.

“It also promotes good equine educational practice. The multi-agency involvement in this project has been key. The input by SDCC in terms of resources and commitment has been significant over the past number of years.”
