Winelovers get on ‘The Munny Trail’

Bray People - - BRAY PEOPLE - Deborah COLE­MAN

HORSE RID­ING and wine­tast­ing might not be two things in­stantly con­nected but an in­dus­tri­ous en­tre­pre­neur in South Wick­low has cre­ated a match made in heaven.

Or­gan­ised by The Munny Trail, the day­long event saw keen rid­ers ex­plore the beau­ti­ful coun­try­side across 60 fences be­tween Lugnaquilla and Mount Le­in­ster.

A high­light of the day was a kestrel spot­ting over Dagg’s Field near Munny Farm.

Af­ter­wards they en­joyed an in­for­ma­tive wine-tast­ing ses­sion back at The Munny Trail in Shil­le­lagh.

RTÉ Na­tion­wide’s Michael Ryan was just one of the ea­ger par­tic­i­pants who thor­oughly en­joyed the oc­ca­sion which in­cluded tips from wine ex­pert Roly Saul and sam­ples of O’Brien’s Fine Wines.
