The Claddagh Heroes, Patrick and Morgan Oliver Handicap (7th race on Mondays card).

With so many people both in our health system and community going above and beyond to help others right now during these challenging times, Galway Racecourse have taken the opportunity to dedicate a race on Monday 26th October to two local heroes, father and son Patrick and Morgan Oliver from the Claddagh here in Galway City – the heroes who saved two paddleboarders recently and only a few weeks back rescued a man on the River Corrib. A big shout out to Patrick’s colleagues in the RNLI all around the country who do fantastic lifesaving work.

When we can safely welcome race goers back to Ballybrit, the team in Galway look forward  to celebrating all that is great about our country and community .
To our front line heroes, those helping others in communities right now, we salute you.
Thank you from the team in Galway Racecourse.
