The Gards did their best…but the race went on to the bitter end!
A dangerous horse race took place on Mallow Road in the southern Irish county of Cork. Two horse and carriages were caught on camera racing each other seemingly oblivious to all automobile traffic.
Irish police tried their best to stop the race, but without being able to knock the racers off the road for fear of a lawsuit, they could only try to warn oncoming traffic.
The race was organised and run by some in the Irish travelling community. You a massive crowd gathered at the end of the race, waiting to see who won.
