Monday August 20th is Londis Roscommon Family Evening at Roscommon Races and there will be something for everyone.
As well as fantastic Flat Racing we’ll have lots of free kids entertainment, our Most Stylish Hat competition, food sampling and a live broadcast from Ros FM.
Among the attractions on the evening will be the Pirate Boat Train, the Rock and Roll Gladiator, Face Painting, the Disco Dome and the opportunity to see Conor McGregor’s UFC title belt! Our Family Evening activities are kindly sponsored by Casey’s Londis and Timothy’s Londis Roscommon town.
As usual there is free admission to Roscommon Races for Under 16s. On Monday we have a special offer of €5 admission for Students, on production of valid ID.
The first of a eight race card is due off at 4:45pm (Note earlier start due to Race divide) and the feature is the Foran Equine Irish EBF Auction Race. Roscommon Races receive great support from the local business community and our other sponsors on the evening are Murray Ambulance, Eurona Brisknet, Pyramid Bookmakers and the Cleary Family. Gerry Gill Motors kindly sponsors the prize for the hard-working grooms, for the best turned out horse in each race.
The Most Stylish Hat Competition, open to ladies and gents, has a first prize of €400 with two runner-up prizes of €100 each. Our Guest Judge is Edel Ramberg, an award winning milliner based in Galway. Edel studied Fashion Design at the Limerick School of Art and Design and worked with world famous milliner Philip Treacy in 2009 where she had the opportunity to work on many collaborations with Valentino to the Royal Family. It was the start of a journey of hats, which has seen Edel’s creations on the heads of ladies from Ireland to America and garner lots of media coverage.
As the evening draws to a close there will be music in the Main Bar after the second last race with Derek Campbell.
