Sligo Horse Races 2016

Race Day in Sligo is a fantastic day out and the perfect reason to visit the majestic North West of Ireland.

Horse racing has been held in County Sligo from time immemorial but the earliest recorded race meeting under Turf Club rules took place at Bowmore, Rosses Point in September 1781. The first race meeting at the course at Cleveragh was held on 24th August 1955 and racing has continued there since.
