LIMERICK'S Greenmount Park has unveiled its Summer Programme 2022 this week.
In all, the Patrickswell venue will stage seven wonderful meetings across May, June and July.
“We are bursting for the off,” enthused Limerick General Manager Emma White ahead of two upcoming Twilight evening meetings on Thursday, May 26 and Friday May, 27.
“Racing at Limerick in the Summer go hand in hand, and always have. We have put in place what are special days’ racing, from our BBQ Evenings, one of which features the brilliant Nathan Carter, to Ladies Day. For the last two summers, followers were unfortunately unable to join us for a day’s racing action, which is entertaining both on and off the track. Now, let’s hope we can all come together once more and enjoy ourselves at Limerick Races.”
