Lorraine Booth announced as Ladies Day Judge

It’s BACK!!! After two Covid interrupted years we are delighted to announce our MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre & Lyrath Estate Ladies Day will be returning to Gowran Park on Saturday July 23rd, bigger & better than ever! This year’s guest judge will be Kilkenny native and Fashion Blogger Lorraine Booth who will be assisted by our teams at Gowran Park, Lyrath & MacDonagh Junction to spot that perfect balance of racing style & creative chic.

Talking about her excitement ahead of the event Lorraine said “I am thrilled to be invited to join up with everyone from MacDonagh Junction, Lyrath Estate and Gowran Park at Ladies Day on July 23rd. It’s so much fun getting dressed up for a day at the races and with this year’s excellent prize everyone has the best excuse to just go out and enjoy themselves. I am sure the fashion stakes will be high, and I am really looking forward to meeting everyone and watching out for that person who stands out from the crowd”

This year’s first prize is Two Nights Bed & Breakfast with dinner on the night of your choosing in the magnificent Lyrath Estate Hotel with a €1000 MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre gift card which can be redeemed in over 30 top brand stores. There will also be five runners up prizes of a €100 MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre gift card & a €100 voucher for the award-winning Oasis Spa in the Lyrath Estate.

Eddie Scally of Gowran Park commented “Our summer Ladies Day event has grown from strength to strength over the past 10 years and this is in no small part down to the wonderful support we get from the teams at MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre and Lyrath Estate Hotel. This year’s top prize of two nights bed and breakfast with dinner on one of the nights at the beautiful Lyrath Estate & a €1000 MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre gift card is just fantastic & after two years of no Ladies Day I just cannot wait to see the buzz around the track on what is our biggest summer meeting of the year”.

Donna Byrne of MacDonagh Junction said “We are delighted to come on board as main sponsor for Ladies Day at Gowran Park for the sixth consecutive year. Ladies Day is synonymous with style and fashion so it’s the perfect fit for the Centre and our 30 top brand retailers. Each year the style stakes reach new heights, and we look forward to seeing the glamourous looks showcased by this year’s entrants.”

Debbie Mangan of Lyrath “We are delighted to be a sponsor for Ladies Day at Gowran Park, our local racetrack. Lyrath Estate is synonymous with style and this sponsorship will allow us to further communicate our luxurious brand to not just a local, Kilkenny market but to racegoers and racing fans all over Ireland. We are delighted to partner with Gowran Park once again and have worked with the track on many an occasion. We are looking forward to seeing all the ladies and the style that will be on show and are also looking forward to watching premier racing at this great track.”
