Cian was delighted to be selected for this year's Aga Khan squad, saying there was a "tough task ahead. Hopefully we can deliver the goods with this great squad. I'm really looking forward to what will be my 17th consecutive International performance at Dublin and hopefully my 11th Aga Khan."
Cian will be taking Quidam's Cherie, Quidam's Flower and Saphir as his international horses, Aramis for the 7&8 year old class, Hugo for the 6 year old class, plus Castlecomer Q for the puissance.
