Track Biography:

Home to the Irish National each Easter Monday, the Grade 1 course at Fairyhouse also played host to the Fingal and Ward Union point-to-points for a number of decades.

However for close to 10 years, from the last Ward Union fixture at the venue in 1995, the track remained absent from the pointing fixture list until it was re-introduced by the Louths in 2014 to host the second ever Anglo-Irish Challenge and E5,000 Tattersalls Ireland Mares Winners race.

Since then it has been the home of the Meath & Taras spring fixture. Taking place inside the inner rules course, the point-to-point track is just over one-mile around with five fences, and is considerably sharper than the main course, and speedier horses tend to have the edge.

We are fortunate to have a hard-working committee who volunteer a lot of their time in the lead up to the point-to-point with many members providing delicious homemade soups, sandwiches, cakes and buns in the catering marquee that is located close to the parade ring and the action.

If you are still feeling peckish during your days racing we also have some fast food units that serve burgers, baps and tasty chips to keep you full for the day.

Our dedicated volunteers in the catering marquee are on hand all day to serve you hot teas, coffees and soup along with soft drinks and juices for the younger race goers.

Soft drinks may also be purchased from our outside catering unit. If you would like something a little stronger we will also be serving hot toddy’s, the perfect warmer upper, with additional alcohol options also available to purchase from the catering marquee.
