The 3rd annual Senior Hurlers Race Day was held in summer like conditions in Gowran Park on Saturday. Many of the senior hurling squad and members of the Ballyhale All Ireland winning team rubbed shoulders with the punters on the day. There was a huge turnout for the under 12 and under 14 long puck competitions with the finals played out in front of the Grand Stand after the 4th race. The Most Appropriately Dressed Lady Competition,sponsored by Serendipity Boutique Kieran St, also proved a huge hit.
Kilkenny GAA would like to thank all our sponsors and advertisers and all those who supported the event in any way.
