With the countdown now on to the start of this years Guinness Christmas Racing Festival at Limerick Racecourse, the list of activities and entertainment over the four days continues to grow.

Falling on a Sunday this year, Ladies Day on 28 December is already bookedout solid in the Panoramic Restaurant and Suites, with only a few remaining places available elsewhere. The Best Dressed Ladies competition sponsoredby Irwin Bros Jewellers is the focal point of attention, along with theinaugural running of the Grade 3 Dorans Pride Novice Hurdle.

Monday 29 December, the last day of the festival will welcome local heroes, Patrickswell Senior Hurlers to the track to show off their trophy from the county final, won again this year for the six time in a decade, and to
