Racing Photographer John Ellard has passed away

Well-known point-to-point racing photographer John Ellard has sadly passed away following a short illness.

The Wexford native has been a familiar face at point-to-point fixtures within the South-East region for a number of decades, having been a vital member of the Healy Racing team that cover all point-to-point and racecourse fixtures for 35 years.

From Our Lady’s Island, John who also worked at Rosslare Europort, was a very popular figure within the point-to-point community, with riders, handlers, owners and regular racegoers alike and will be greatly missed by all within the sport.

A gentleman in every sense of the word, we at P2P.ie extend our sympathies to John’s family, friends and colleagues at Healy Racing Photographers at this time.
