A great day out for all the family at the historic Farmacaffley Races on February 24th

A  great day out for all the family at the historic Farmacaffley Races on February 24th

The sole Orchard County based point-to-point, which promises to be a Saturday well spent, is conveniently located just two miles outside the city of Armagh.

The stiff galloping track has produced such track stars as Grand National hero Binadree and Cheltenham Gold Cup runner up Trucker Tavern. Pitcured left, the Colin-McBratney-trained Quiet Acount, winner of last years open lightweight race.

Race goers can get up close with potential future champions from the free car park that boasts a clear view of the track and close proximity to the final fence ideal for car side picnics.There will be hot food and beverage options, whilst Foster Chocolate will have a stall on the day providing sweet treats, and for those looking for something a little stronger, alcohol can be purchased in the on-course bar tent.

Admission for children will be free and for adults over 16 is £5. Attendees who may not want to miss out on the track action of the day, Irish and UK racing can be viewed in the tracks bookmakers ring.

As the race meeting was first run back in 1895 on its original site of Farmacaffley House, by kind permission of the Leeman family, this meeting is one of the longest running point-to-points in Ireland. Some rare footage from the 1955 running of the meeting was recently made available online by BFI.org.uk which provides some stunning images of the historic track and a look back at pointing in years gone by.
