Listowel Race Company is tonight officially opening its newly constructed €1.3 million food hall, bar and viewing area.
Built by Monami Construction Ltd, the new building has been part-financed by Horse Racing Ireland through its Racecourse Capital Development Scheme, which provided funding of over €600,000.
Construction began in January and was completed ahead of schedule in mid-July.
The new building replaces The Old Snack Bar, and incorporates a modern food hall, called The Old Weir Food Hall on the ground floor, and The Riverside Bar on the upper level, with an adjacent viewing area.
Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Michael Creed, Chief Executive of Horse Racing Ireland Brian Kavanagh, and Chairman of Listowel Race Company David Fitzmaurice will cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony tonight.
Thousands of racegoers will have the opportunity to avail of the new facilities over the upcoming Listowel Harvest Racing Festival meeting from the 11th to the 17th of September.
