21/02/2015: The club wishes to thank everyone who supported the race night held this evening in the Corner Bar.  It was an overwhelming success with over 350 horses competing in a whopping 44 races - finishing off with the exciting Publican's Race.  The event generated profit of over €5,000 which will go towards the upcoming development. Many thanks to the players, mentors and committee members who exceeded expectations with the large number of horses sold.  A special thanks to our sponsors listed below who sponsored the race prizes.  Also, we wish to sincerely thank all the horse buyers who, in their multitude, supported the race night so generously.  There was a good crowd on the night which goes against the recent trend of race nights being badly supported and great craic was had by all.  Thanks to the Corner Bar for providing the venue, foods and music.  Thanks to Geraldine and Carmel in the Cranny office for their hard work in compiling the race booklet.
