General Information:

Year Book - 1953 - The Molo Hunt may be said to be the senior hunt of the Colony and kennels some 25 couple of hounds. Hunting one day a week and an occasional bye-day, the Molo Hunt took 22 reedbuck during the season of 1952 and this is probably a record. The Master, Mr J.P. Ryan, whose uncle and cousin are Joint-Masters of the "Black and Tans" (Scarteen) in Tipperary, is a great hand at the game and was one time Master of the Ampleforth College Beagles. The present healthy state of the Molo Hunt is to a great extent due to Mr Ryan though his predecessors, Mr 'Gerry' Alexander and Mr E.P. Danby, have assuredly left their mark upon a pack which has, since its foundation in 1924, built up a tradition of its own.
