The County Kerry Coursing Club is looking for an explanation as to why it has been locked out of Ballybeggan Park where it hosts its annual coursing meeting.

The coursing club has links with the former racetrack stretching back to 1897. However, when Chairperson Thomas Ward tried to access the site at the weekend, he discovered the locks had been changed.
