National Schools Race Night

Race Night a huge success.

Over 160 punters attended the Parish National Schools Race Night held in Coachford last Saturday night. The race goers  enjoyed 12 races  and betting was brisk for all of them. There was a  tremendous atmosphere in the very well decorated hall and huge credit must go to the Parents Associations of Aghabullogue, Coachford and Rylane National Schools for organising a superb fundraiser and a fantastic social event. The Lee Valley Golf and Country Club were the main sponsors of the race night and also laid on some gorgeous finger food for all those present.  The last race was an auction race where groups of friends got together  to purchase a race horse and hope that it would come in and bring home half the pot. Once the last race was ran the fantastic Hillbillies entertained the crowd well into the morning.  It will be a few weeks before all the sponsorship money is in but already it looks like the first ever Tri schools event was a roaring success. Who needs Cheltenham?
