Cheers.... to yet an­other top class Lis­towel Races

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - FRONT PAGE - By TADHG EVANS

THE peo­ple’s fes­ti­val has al­ready de­liv­ered – and we’re only half­way through.

Lis­towel’s Har­vest Fes­ti­val al­ways brings the sum­mer to a spir­ited fin­ish, and the first three days of this year’s meet­ing served up its usual mix of craic, in­ter­est­ing race-cards – and even some pop­u­lar lo­cal win­ners.

“The weather forecast for Sun­day and Mon­day was dire, but we ac­tu­ally got pretty lucky as it cleared up for the af­ter­noons,” said Races Sec­re­tary Brenda Daly.

“The pub­lic has got­ten be­hind us as they al­ways do. We’re en­joy­ing a great fes­ti­val, and we’re only three days in,” she added.

And there have been lo­cal win­ners too, in­clud­ing Croc­o­dile Dundee, guided home by Blen­nerville’s Brian Cooper and sad­dled by Brian’s fa­ther, Tom.
