    Horse racing

    by orlikins Updated May 4, 2003

    I know next to nothing about this, but there are regular horse point-to-point races around Limerick as well as the Limerick races off the Dooradoyle road in Greenpark. Back home, I've got 3 neighbours on my road who keep horses and who are involved in hunting, training and holding gymkhanas. (And then there's my non-horsey family in the middle of them all!)

    Great day!

    We had an afternoon at Limerick Racecourse (April 08) and loved it.

    The place was quieter than I expected, maybe because the meeting clashed with the Grand National at Aintree, or maybe because it was a very "early season" flat fixture.

    The racing was good tho'. My buddy picked 2 winners from 6 on her first time at the races, and won €110! My efforts were pretty dismal, probably due to spending my time keeping her right! Thats my excuse, anyway.

    Its a very new facility, and well worth a visit. Flat and jumps.

    It was my first visit to an Irish course - very much the same as UK - fun!

    We had a package including lunch - well worth it.

    Equipment: 1 - Throwaway cash for bets (€2 minimum on the tote - more with the bookies).
    2 - Warm clothing if you go in April!
    3 - Satnav to find the place (very easy from Dublin, hellish if coming from Galway)
