Hurling Punchestown 2018

See 2018 Report Out Here


It’s that time of the year again when we plan another great days racing in support of Kilmacud Crokes Hurling endeavours. This year when we will celebrate our 16th annual race day on Tuesday 24th April, again on the opening day of the Punchestown National Hunt Festival featuring Three Grade 1 races.  It traditionally attracts the best Irish and British trained horses following their exertions at the Cheltenham festival in March. 

For 2018, we have again invited some very special guests and are confident you and your guests will have a very enjoyable and memorable day.   Hosted in the 'Punchestown Pavilion' located directly at the Last Fence, Patrons enjoy  Professional and celebrity tipsters to review the racecard before their 4 Star Silver Service Lunch. In situ Tote Betting and Bookie stands are complimented by a Private Bar and Afternoon Tea. 
We have retained the popular luxury coach transfers - from Stillorgan or City Centre to/from Racecourse ensuring eveningeEntertainment after the races ‘till late.

Based on feedback it is proven to be an excellent day either for Corporate Entertainment or indeed entertaining staff, colleagues, friends or family. Last year we sold out so please do let us know as soon as possible if you wish to book a table and we will reserve one for you.

To take a table please complete the attached 2018 Booking Formkilmacudgaa_booking_form_2018.pdf  and return it to myself or any member of the organising work group below. If you cannot commit to a full table, we can facilitate partial table bookings.
