Accident at Kinvara races
Two rather serious accidents occurred at Kinvara race meeting on Jun 28th. In the second race J. Norris, who was riding Mr. P. Donnelly’s Paravid, had the misfortune to fall and break his leg. In the fourth race, the Stewards’ Plate, M. Holland, who was riding Mr T. Wall’s Solid Gold, had a very nasty fall on his head. He was taken to St. Bride’s Home, Galway suffering from concussion of the brain. He is receiving treatment there and is progressing favourably.
