Punchestown 2016 - Another Day at the Races
Come hail or shine Punchestown Race Day is always a winner!
The 13th Annual Kilmacud Crokes Corporate Race day, sponsored by Charlie Chawke and the Goat Bar and Grill was another great day. Hailstone Showers on arrival gave rise to more benign conditions - reflected in the throngs that went out to the rails - to cheer on their winners (& also rans)
Kilmacud Crokes Pavilion again afforded patrons both warmth from the late spring chill and a fine day's entertainment.
Our thanks to all the staff and management at Punchestown.
Great credit is due to the Crokes Organizing team for the long term planning and the last minute tweaks to bring it together. Special mention to our young members and friends for their ushering, meet & greet, raffle & auction help.
Thank you Stephen, Eoin, Michael, Aideen, Kate, Alannah, Ciara, Saoirse, Priska and Sarah
As always MC Robbie Irwin kept patrons will informed and marshalled with all the races and activities. There was a great buzz and excitement with the raffle and auction .
There was great interest in the races and banter all the way into the evening culminating in the exodus back home; some more punctual - for others, part of the punchestown craic, getting the bus is a treasure hunt.
Finally special thanks to all our patrons and guests for supporting our club and day - it makes such a difference.
