Great racing, great weather, great occasion

Killarney was a winner alright on the first and second days of the three-day MayFest meeting at the local racecourse where shirt-sleeved punters were treated to a feast of top quality racing, exciting finishes, glorious weather conditions and a real party atmosphere.

Killarney Racecourse Ambassador, former top jockey Bryan Cooper, was on hand to help steer punters on the right path and it all made for two great days of racing with another one to come this Tuesday.
