Well-known equestrian personalities Eddie Macken, Con Power and James Kernan are among those to pay tribute to the legendary Tommy Brennan in the book 'Tommy - A Pictorial Memoir of Tommy Brennan' which is still available from selected outlets nationwide in the run up to Christmas.

Compiled by Tommy's good friends Leslie Fitzpatrick, Michael Slavin and Pat O'Loughlin, the book features some wonderful memories and images of Tommy's career both in and out of the saddle which spanned some 50 years.

Tommy, who died in July of last year, represented Ireland at World and European level in both eventing and show jumping, and in later years went on to be a respected cross-country course builder throughout Europe and beyond.

Priced at €20, the book is available to purchase through the RDS, as well as Cavan and Goresbridge Sales. Alternatively email

Proceeds from the book sales will go towards the development of a bursary project in early 2016 for a young event rider, show jumper and course builder.
