Lady Hemphill Honoured 

 

■ LAST Sunday, Lady Anne Hemphill, 
whom with her husband the late Lord 
Peter Patrick Hemphill founded the 
famous Tulira Stud, was presented with 
a special award by RDS president Fonsie 
Mealy in the main arena. The award was 
presented in recognition of her distinguished contribution to equestrianism in 
Ireland.
Looking back through the bloodlines 
of Connemara champions in Ireland 
and all over the world, the Tulira prefix 
features in many pedigrees. Lady Anne 
also laid the foundations for pony clubs 
in many counties by relentlessly giving 
her time and expertise to young people 
as a mentor, breeder. As an international 
judge, few if any could match her knowledge of both horses and hounds on the 
hunting field.
It was fitting that her huge contribution was so deservedly recognised in the 
company of her daughters Angela Cookson and Mary Anne Nelson and family 
members at this great venue.
