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.

This is a very special day in Gowran Park as supporters - especially children - have the opportunity to meet some of our senior players and obtain autographs and photos. This year we also have the added attraction of an under 14 and under 12 long puck competition withg the finals in front of the Grandstand during the meeting.
