The Curragh’s Autumn Festival – Newbridge Parishes Day – begins on Saturday 28th September 2019 and Bord na Móna Recycling are offering our customers this great 2-for-1 deal for a lovely family day out.
There is plenty to look forward to the day when the Curragh stages the annual Newbridge Parishes Family Race Day, and there will be a free shuttle bus available from Kildare and Newbridge towns.
A top-class programme of 8 races starts at 1.25pm, while a variety of free entertainment for children during the afternoon includes an exciting Kids-Zone and music from a variety of local performers including the Newbridge Gospel Choir.
Children from sports clubs in the parish will take part in exhibition games between races including Moorefield; Sarsfields GAA; Newbridge United and Newbridge Town soccer teams; Cill Dara and Newbridge rugby clubs; and Newbridge Athletics Club.
The race day will also celebrate the successes of Irish Pony Club members this year and this will include a special Musical Ride performance and a Jockey Skills display on the track with ten pony club members taking part.
