Celebrating the opening of the new Curragh development
A fantastic opportunity to showcase your brand as part of the opening of the new Curragh
under stARTers orders – supported by THE CURRAGH RACECOURSE
Steeped in history and tradition, the Curragh Racecourse is undoubtedly Ireland’s premier flat racing venue and the spiritual home of the sport in Ireland.
Considered to be one of the finest tracks in the world, every year it is the home to Ireland’s five Classics. Centre stage is of course held by the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, a major event for flat racing worldwide and a race that down through the years has been won by some of the greatest racehorses ever to run.
The new Curragh will see the creation of world class facilities on a par with the best anywhere in the world. The centrepiece of the redevelopment will see the creation of a major new grandstand which will incorporate five star corporate facilities, restaurants, bars and superb viewing facilities for all racegoers.
The new Curragh will be a world class centre of excellence as Ireland’s leading racecourse, the national racehorse training centre and a popular local, national and international destination embracing change and innovation while protecting the unique heritage of the Curragh. The ambition is to make the Curragh a world leader for racing, event management and entertainment and establish the Curragh as a must visit year-round vibrant destination for activities and events, both race day and non-race days.
The 20 painted sculptures will be auctioned off at the time of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby 2019 to support two worthy local charities, Irish Injured Jockeys & Sensational Kids.
