Savills Race Day - Leopardstown, 28th December 2018

The annual football section fund-raiser Christmas race day  was held on Friday December the 28th in Leopardstown Race course.  This was the eight running of this event and it followed in the tradition of previous years in being a great day out.  What was called the Lexus Chase day is now called the Savills chase day with the change to a new sponsor. Over 295 guests enjoyed a 3 course lunch and a fantastic day's racing. The weather was kind to us with no frost or rain.   Sam Maguire made an appearance  as did the Cleary cup with some of our winning Dublin Football Championship final players.  This has been one of the best years in the club for football honors will lots of league and championships won from Under 12 up to Senior. There were winners and losers a plenty  also on the day.  Welcome to our new football chairman Pat Horgan and we say a big Thank You to the outgoing chairman Sean Fox for all his great work over the last number if years.    Many thanks to all those who supported the event either from a corporate perspective or coming along and purchasing tables with friends.  Special  thanks to a number of folks who made the day such a success - Tony Kelly who was our resident tipster for the day, John Bradley who sponsored the wine, Spirit Motor group, Clayton Hotels, Powerscourt and Newlands Golf Courses, BOI ,  Leopardstown race course,  and to all those who generously sponsored and donated prizes for the raffle.
