Celebration of Tullamore Rugby Club at Kilbeggan Races
Kilbeggan Racecourse will host members of Tullamore Rugby Club at its evening meeting on Friday May 17th to celebrate the club’s 75th year anniversary, and most successful year to date.
In their all-conquering season, Tullamore won all four major competitions that they entered - the Leinster League, the Ulster Bank All-Ireland Junior Cup, the Provincial League Championship round robin series and the 88th Provincial Towns Cup.
Members of the Tullamore Club have been asked to bring their trophies to the racecourse on Friday, where the Kilbeggan Race Committee will make a special presentation.
The seven-race card at Kilbeggan goes to post at 5.40pm, with the feature race, the F.B.D. Insurance Hurdle off at 7.20pm.
Kilbeggan Racecourse Manager Paddy Dunican said: “Next Friday’s meeting has all the ingredients of a fantastic evening and there should be a brilliant atmosphere with the Tullamore Rugby Club event, great racing and live music. There has always been a great connection between Kilbeggan and Tullamore and we are delighted to make a special tribute to the club to mark their outstanding achievements.”
