Harvest Festival Races 2014 and countdown to an All Ireland Final

Harvest Festival 2014

Some photos from Wednesday September 17 2014, on the Island

 A record crowd of over 27,000 attended. The weather was balmy. Temperatures reached 23degrees as Listowel basked in its 15th. day without rain, heading for the driest September on record. The familiar breeze which whips up from the river is absent this year so conditions for the punters are ideal.

Gone are the days when a row of parked helicopters graced the area behind the carpark….only 2 on Wednesday.

These ladies were fundraising for a Ballybunion Preschool Facility.

 Eleanor and family were picking winners.

 Miriam Kiely, home for the Races, was enjoying the sunshine with her friends,e Mary Sobieralski and Joan Kennelly.

These proud grandparents were introduction their twins to their second visit to Listowel Races. Here they are taking a nap before getting down to business.

The Fitzgerald brothers studying form.

Fergus O'Connor and his wife took the day off to return to Fergus' roots.

Dan and Maureen Hartnett enjoying the sunshine and the racing.

The Nolans came to the races to meet up with friends and enjoy the conviviality of the occasion.
