Stanislaus Lynch was Ireland’s most authoritative writer on all matters to do with hunting. He often took part in hunts across Europe and won numerous prizes at horse-jumping events. His skills as a commentator were valued and he broadcast for many years during the ‘Military Jumping Competition’ for the Aga Khan Cup and the ‘International Jumping Championship’, at the Dublin Horseshow.
