Grainne Sugars, Former Chairman of AIRE passes away


It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of Grainne Sugars, a past Chairman and long time member of AIRE.

As many of you will remember, Grainne owned and ran Calliagstown Equestrian Centre for over 30 years.

She was a great ambassador for the Irish Equestrian Industry and worked tirelessly on its behalf throughout her professional life.

AIRE would like to extend deepest sympathy to her sisters, Phillipa and Judy and her brother John together with her extended family and many friends.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.





































  She started Calliaghstown Riding Centre and trained many students.
