Boherdeal Clover at stud
Boherdeal Clover, the Clover Hill stallion owned by Padraig and Sheelagh Goonan, who competed with Michael Whitaker before moving to the Irish Army Equitation School, has been retired to stud. A member of many Irish Nations Cup teams, Boherdeal Clover now stands at Ard Cherrymount Stud near Navan.
Correction: Miss Sheelagh Goonan, owner of Boherdeal Clover wishes to state that the statement above, published on May 4, 2004 is incorrect. Boherdeal Clover is in fact still competing and is ‘far from retirement’. Horse & Hound Online is happy to make this correction. July 19, 2004
