The McElligotts Kia Ladies Day will be one of the many highlights at this year’s seven-day Listowel Harvest Racing Festival which runs from Sunday, September 18 to Saturday, September 24.

Declan O’Hara, MD, McElligott’s Tralee, said with the introduction of so many stunning new KIA models there was never a more opportune time to showcase the range to the many discerning guests that know more than a thing or two about style and fashion.

“We are looking forward to a great day of racing and fashion in Listowel,” he remarked.

This is the eighth year of McElligott’s sponsorship of this prestigious fashion event and they are delighted to welcome on board Kia as official event co-sponsors.

The full festival programme will be officially announced on Monday, August 15.
