This video has kindly been provided to us by some Northern Point to Point enthusiasts and contains some wonderful footage from Point to Point races in Co Down in 1962 and 1979 with the final piece of this 30min piece being footage of the Queen Mother visiting Downpatrick Racecourse.

This is a must watch for any follower of Northern Point to Points or indeed point to point around the country and many of the faces will be very recognizable even today.

It is notable how many sets of colours are still evident in Northern Ireland Point to Pointing showing the generations continue to keep the tradition of producing point to pointers in the region alive and well.
