A HAIR-RAISING video posted to YouTube shows a Garda pursuit on a Cork carriageway – but it’s a pursuit with a difference; instead of cars alone, this incident involves horses too.
(We recommend you watch this through your fingers.)
Gardaí have confirmed that a male in his late 20s was arrested following the incident on 5 May and was subsequently released.
Investigations are continuing.
Speaking on the Niall Boylan Show on Classic Hits 4FM today, the man who filmed the incident – who wants to remain anonymous – said: “Guards should let us race somewhere else. We have nowhere to race and that’s the reason the ponies are being brought out to the main roads”.
