Update on Guests at Racemeetings
The Irish Government announced yesterday that from 6th September increased numbers of guests can be admitted to Irish Race meetings. This is not an end to restrictions and there are still restrictions on capacity and facilities in place under this latest legislation until 22nd October 2021.
Following the Irish Government's announcement at 6pm last night Horse Racing Ireland are meeting today (Wednesday) to decide on what the restrictions that will still be in force will mean to race meetings and what services including indoor dining, hospitality, facilities and bar service will be available to guests of Longines Irish Champions Weekend, The Listowel Festival and race meetings from now until restrictions ease further. Following this meeting they will confirm, hopefully later this afternoon, the numbers of guests that will be admitted to Leopardstown and The Curragh and Listowel, ticket sale and conditions of entry, dining and other protocols that will be in place for guests wishing to attend. As of now we are awaiting that decision. Lets hope significant numbers with no "silly rules" will be admitted and can enjoy racing once more.
