Just a few weeks away now, it’s a meet­ing promis­ing the quin­tes­sen­tial Lis­towel rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as ever – great race ac­tion in a fan­tas­tic set­ting.

‘Se­ri­ous rac­ing, se­ri­ous fun and sen­sa­tional Sum­mer style’ is how the June meet­ing is be­ing billed this year – three guar­an­teed facets of the one rac­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all who make the trip to the Is­land.

Tak­ing place on Sun­day, June 3, and Mon­day, June 4, it also co­in­cides with the an­nual Writer’s Week Fes­ti­val, lead­ing to a great June Bank Hol­i­day Week­end in Lis­towel when the weather plays its part as it of­ten does on this par­tic­u­lar week­end.

In ad­di­tion to top qual­ity Na­tional Hunt and Flat Rac­ing, the Race com­mit­tee has or­gan­ised mu­sic after rac­ing each evening.

One of the high­lights of the week­end meet­ing is, of course, Ladies Day - tak­ing place on the Sun­day.

Award-win­ning so­prano, model and so­cial me­dia star Sinead O’Brien – the hugely pop­u­lar writer and fash­ion­ista be­hind the Sinead’s Curvy Style blog. There is a to­tal prize fund of €5,000 for Ladies’ Day, spon­sored by the busi­nesses and pub­li­cans of Lis­towel town.
