Breast Cancer Research & The Galway Races

Sunday 27th October 2019

For 2019, Galway Racecourse will for the second year running host a three-day October Festival (Saturday 26th – Bank Holiday Monday 28th October). We will be offering three days of fantastic horseracing, hospitality, entertainment and an electric atmosphere that continues to draw people from Ireland and abroad to experience the magic that is the Galway Races. As part of the October Festival, on Sunday 27th we will host a dedicated fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research Ireland (BCRI). The team at Galway Racecourse are proud to be working with Professor Michael Kerins and his dedicated team at BCRI to organise this event.  By partnering with BCRI we will be supporting the research team at NUIG to improve breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Following the huge sell-out success of last years event that raised €95,000 for the charity, we have lots of exciting plans in store. Book now to secure your table.
