Marymount Race Day – August 17

Marymount Race Day 2019

We are delighted to host our inaugural Marymount Race Day at Cork Racecourse on Saturday, August 17.

The event promises to be a stylish, fun filled day with a stacked race card, live music, an afternoon tea and champagne event, as well as incredible prizes on offer for the most most sartorially savvy ladies and gents.

Fashion sages, no less the caliber of Brendan Courtney, Louis Copeland and Annmarie O’Connor, will be on hand to judge everyone’s efforts. The winners will take home holidays, bespoke suits and shopping sprees among other prizes.

DJ Stevie G along with Violini, Chris Kavanagh and Handipak will hit all the right notes to keep the party going.

There’s also family-friendly entertainment on offer, while under-14s go free.

All proceeds from admission, race sponsorship and race card advertising on the day will be donated to the Marymount University Hospital & Hospice, Ireland’s oldest and busiest hospice.

Marymount, which marks 150 years of serving the people of Cork in 2020, is only partially funded (58%) by the the state, leaving the hospice to raise €3.5 million a year just to maintain current service levels. It provides a range of services, care and support to patients with progressive illness at a time when pain or other symptom issues need addressing.

Doors open at noon, with the first race set for 1:25pm on August 17th and the last race going to post at 4:55pm. Tickets (€20) are available to book now at Corkracecourse.ie.

The Combo Ticket (€30) includes a return train ticket and general admission ticket. Corporate (€100 per person / €1000 a table) tickets are available directly from the Marymount fundraising office at 021 4501 201.
