This provides the backdrop for an extraordinary atmosphere for racegoers to come together to celebrate the Emerald Isle

 

Toe-Tapping Classics

It wouldn't be a celebration without a traditional Irish sing-along, would it? 

 

Expect classic folk music in between racing from The Lucky 15's, All Folked Up and Taylor & The Mason's. Click here for the full music line-up.
