Roscommon Races kick off in style – and sunshine!

The opening meeting of the year at Roscommon Racecourse was a wonderful success on Monday evening.

  Held in beautiful weather, there was a great atmosphere generated by the large crowd of up to 3,000 people.

  A new tote building was recently built and it was open to the patrons, with the old tote building now gone.

  This was part of the most recent refurbishment work that has taken place at the racecourse, which also includes work on the jockeys’ room.

  Micheál Finneran, the manager of the racecourse, said that there was a “great buzz around the place” on Monday evening.

  Preparations are now underway for the next meeting, which will be held on Monday, June 13th, and Tuesday, June 14th.
