Following an absence of 23 years from the point-to-point calendar, Cork Racecourse plays host to a fixture in April 2021 in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions where the Irish Government?s decision to allow pointing return was on the condition they initially took place on HRI-approved racecourses. In the case of this fixture, it was the Duhallow (F) Dromahane committee, who normally run a fixture at the nearby venue of Dromahane who were organising the meeting.

Situated on the outskirts of Mallow, the racecourse first opened in 1924 and hosts both flat and national hunt meetings throughout the full year, including a popular point-to-point track fixture on Easter Monday which includes a number of Hunter Chases and Point-to-Point Bumpers.

The Duhallow point-to-point fixture itself takes place on the Chase course which plays host to the likes of the Grade 2 Hilly Way Chase, but with point-to-point fences used.
