Gardaí halt massive sulky group on Kilkenny road

At least ten sulkies were pulled over in the incident today near the ring road

They were pulled over in Clara. Multiple garda vehicles were involved, and it's understood a vet was called to the scene.

It's not the first time a large group of sulkies have used this road, which is close to the ring road. Horse-free zones have been proposed for some areas of Kilkenny City, but not in this area.
