Paul Beecher wins the Munster Grand Prix League

Paul was crowned 2016 Connolly's RED MILLS Munster Grand Prix league champion for the very first time, following the conclusion of the series at Banteer Gymkhana on Sunday.

Beecher from Tallow in the west of the county, had been involved in a titanic struggle with fellow Waterford rider Francis Connors, who was looking to defend the title he won for the last three years in-a-row. Beecher accumulated a total of 73 league points with the Seryna Van Kuelen-owned gelding Danqu who at just an eight-year-old looks to have a bright future in the sport. The pair scored four wins in total, at Kingdom County (Kerry), Ballinamona (Waterford), Maryville (Cork) and at the Limerick/Clare branch show.
