The countdown is on for the August Races in Killarney, which begin on Tuesday, August 17, and will run for four days.
It’s a racing festival, being held for just the second time following its success in its inaugural running last year, that is offering something for everyone this year.
The popular races are a perfect way for the people of Killarney and those visiting the town to give a proper send-off to an unforgettable summer of sport that saw Killarney also successfully host the 3 Irish Open.
With the widespread media coverage of the Irish Open displaying Killarney’s beauty for all to see, visitors from far and wide are expected to descend on the town for the August Races which take place on Ireland’s most scenic racecourse.
There is a chance for the ladies to get dressed up, particularly on Friday, August 20, when TV3’s Sinead Desmond will be the celebrity judge of the most Appropriately Dressed Competition.
