The race is on, and everyone is welcome, as Listowel Race Company prepare to host their first full public meeting in two years from Saturday 4th to Monday 6th of June 2022. One of the highlights will be Ladies Day on Sunday 5th of June, which will be judged by fashion blogger, Emily O’Donoghue, @fashionablyfortyish with a total prize fund of €1,000 in cash. For more information on the Listowel Races June Bank Holiday Meeting and to pre-book your tickets visit listowelraces.ie and follow @listowelraces #listowelraces on social media. Tickets can also be purchased on the day from the turnstiles.
The winner of the Best Dressed Lady will receive €500 and the first runner up €250. This year promises to be extra stylish and also poignant – as Listowel Race Company remember a dedicated race-goer and follower of fashion…the wonderful Betty McGrath who sadly passed away after an illness last year. In her honour, there will be a prize for the Most Fashion Forward Headpiece, where the judge will be looking for a headpiece that has real personality and style just like Betty who loved colour, creativity and always had fun with fashion. Prizes will be co-sponsored by friends and traders of Listowel town.
The Listowel Races Ladies Day is expected to attract large crowds from all over Munster. Judging will commence on course at 1.00pm, and judge Emily O’Donoghue will personally walk the course and select 10 finalists. The over all winners will be announced in the parade ring after the 5th race.
