Management at Killarney Racecourse say the limited attendance for its August Festival is unjust and unfair.
Racing will take place from Thursday to Saturday inclusive at the Ross Road track; all tickets are sold out.
Under COVID-19 regulations, 500 spectators are allowed on the racecourse per day.
Chairman of the Board of Killarney Races, Ger Coughlan said it’s extremely unfair that 24,000 people can attend the All-Ireland Semi Finals and only 500 people are allowed on the 90-acre Killarney Racecourse.
Mr Coughlan said the team is very confident the situation will be much improved for their October meeting.
