Racing, Dancing and Family Fun Make for an Exciting July Festival at Ballinrobe Racecourse

Preparations are well underway ahead of Ballinrobe’s two day race meeting on Monday & Tuesday July 24th & 25th featuring a family fun day and the Cliona Hagan Race Dance. Monday hosts an all flat card sponsored by Tote, with the feature race of the evening, the TOTE Exacta H’Cap worth €22,000, going to post at 5:10pm.

There will be an exciting line up of free activities for the children to enjoy including Carnival games, Magic Show, Horse Racing Juniors Tent, Children’s playground, Comedy Horse Photo Opportunity, Face painting, Stilt walkers and Cartoon characters. It promises to be a great day out for all the family.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to our two day July meeting. It is holiday time for a lot of people and there is always a great atmosphere. We welcome all families on Monday evening, there will be lots to keep everyone entertained. We look forward to welcoming Cliona Hagan to back to Ballinrobe Racecourse, following a very entertaining evening of singing and dancing last year. I would like to take the opportunity to wish Ballinrobe Festival well with their events running from 22nd – 30th July.
