Numbers were down but the excitement was high

WITH Joseph O’Brien stealing the show on the track, riding a number of winners, off the course it was all glamour as punters turned on the style on Saturday for the closing day of the three-day Killarney Festival of Racing.

Although the town was packed on each of the three days, the number of punters allowed at the racecourse was limited to 500 a day due to Covid-19 restrictions.

That decision upset the race company board of directors but the member of the public that were lucky to get in concentrated on enjoying the occasion, backing a few winners and sipping a few glasses of bubbly.
