Saturday 17th August – The Marymount University Hospital & Hospice Charity Raceday

August 17 @ 12:00 am - 5:00 pm


August 17th is a date not to be missed. We are delighted to announce a charity raceday in association with Marymount University Hospital & Hospice. All proceeds from admission, race sponsorship and race card advertising on the day will be donated to this very worthy cause.


Marymount University Hospital & Hospice along with Cork Racecourse Mallow are delighted to announce details of an exciting addition to Cork’s racing calendar this Summer on Saturday, August 17th.


This is set to be a fantastic day out for all with both Listed and Group 3 action on the track as well as live music and plenty of family fun activities to keep the whole family entertained. There will also be some super prizes up for grabs with the Lee Travel Best Dressed Lady and Louis Copeland & Sons Best Dress Man Events.


All proceeds from August 17th will go directly to Marymount’s specialist community palliative care services. This vital service supports those living at home with a serious illness in Cork City and County.  Marymount heavily relies on donations to maintain the vital services that their palliative care nurses offer.


The first race will be confirmed closer to the time, but we have an expected start time of approximately 2pm. 


Thanks to our wonderful caterers, Woodlands Catering, we will have plenty of hospitality options available to cater for everyone’s tastes. To ensure the best seat in the house book online now!
