Congratulations to Rachael Blackmore

 

Sir, – Congratulations to Rachael Blackmore who had a wonderful week in Cheltenham.

What an inspiration to all young women everywhere!

But why does The Irish Times, in its list of runners, give female jockeys their full first and second names, whereas male jockeys are identified only by an initial instead of a full first name?

Rachael has demonstrated that women and men should be treated equally.

– Yours, etc,

FINBAR KEARNS,

Piercestown,

Co Wexford.
