Limerick Racecourse is delighted to confirm the line-up for the popular Twilight Racing series 2017 taking place in June and July at Greenmount Park. Twilight races are run off in a fast paced format, but the races are only part of the fun, there is live music, entertainment and fashion too.
The first Twilight evening takes place on Saturday 17th June with racing action from 6pm, followed by live music with The Jackie Chan Allstars. JC Allstars are one of Munster’s premier live acts performing a specular and entertaining show with a mixture of current music and well known hits.
Friday 23rd June is always a busy night for corporate events and sports and social outings that will enjoy the trilling racing action followed by The 4 of Us in concert from 9pm. The 4 Of Us shot to early fame towards the end of 1989 with their debut Songs for the Tempted, which featured the massive hits Mary and Drag My Bad Name Down. The follow up Man Alive made Q magazine’s prestigious Top 50 Albums of 1992 and included the UK Top 30 song She Hits Me.
In July we shall have a new summer fixture of National Hunt racing from 3pm until 6pm on Saturday 22nd of July followed by popular Limerick band Atomic Chicken who will take to the stage after racing. Thursday 27th July is the final of the twilight evenings with national hunt races followed by one of the best country music shows on the circuit performed by Michael English and his band. Michael English is one of Irelands top Country Music Artists and winner of a Hot Country Award 2016. Michael is entertaining audiences at home & further afield for over 20 years with his current single “will you dance” is at number 4 in the Country Music Charts.
