History of Listowel Races

The origin of Listowel Races can be traced all the way back to an annual gathering at Ballyeigh, Ballybunion, about nine miles from Listowel.

Serious Fun, Serious Racing

Press Release:
Sunday 20th to Saturday 26th September
Behind Closed Doors
In July, Listowel Race Committee made the difficult, but unavoidable decision that our Harvest Festival Meeting in September 2020, would not take place as an event open to the general public this year, due to public health and safety concerns. Since the 8th June, racing in Ireland has taken place behind closed doors under the guidance and strict protocols set down by Horse Racing Ireland and the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
These measures are to safeguard everyone’s health and wellbeing during the current health situation and to ensure racing can continue in a safe and appropriate manner. All those who have to be on site (jockeys, trainers, medics etc) will be subject to strict health screening both in advance and on the day of racing.
Our team at the racecourse are working with An Garda Síochána to ensure that Listowel Racecourse will be safe and secure for those taking part in the week-long event. We are therefore asking in the interest of public health that you do not attend Listowel Racecourse or the immediate vicinity of the racetrack itself as it will be closed. Drones in the vicinity of the racetrack, are also prohibited. We would be grateful to you for respecting this.
While we are disappointed that you will not be able to join us in Listowel this year to enjoy the Harvest Festival Meeting, you can still tune in to TG4 from Monday 21st to Saturday 26th September and to Racing TV also, from the comfort of your own home this year.
Wherever you decide to enjoy the Listowel Races Harvest Festival we would appeal to you that you comply fully with the Public Health advice currently in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19. We look forward to welcoming you back to Listowel Racecourse in the future, but for now, stay safe and enjoy the racing.
