    my most memorable galway races experiece involved the gamblers, the thimbles and the garters
    And the sporting Wheel of Fortune with the four and twenty quarters
    There was others without scruple pelting wattles at poor Maggy
    And her daddy well contented to be gawking at his daughter

    My most memorable galway races experience involved my whole family. I was 8 my brother was 7. We both picked a number for a horse which my mother backed. She gave me my brothers ticket and my brother mine. My brothers horse won. Woo hoo i had his ticket. This led to a massive fight but luckily my father and grandfather intervened. All was sorted with ice cream for both of us and a go on the carousel. Ah happy days.

    My Most memorable Galway Races experience involved working a few weeks of the summer (of 1992/93 I think) in the Corrib Great Southern Hotel as a bar man and silver service waiter…. I got to see ‘Woman’s Heart’ play three nights in a row… which was not as bad as it sounds, in fairness… but best of all were the tips from jockeys and trainers at the hotel.

    I arrived home on the Thursday early afternoon having completed the morning shift and the first two races were already over. I checked my bit of paper with my tips and saw the first two tips were the first two winners. Myself and my three dole friends headed to the bookies and by evening we each had IR£70 to IR£80 each on a IR£5 punt.

    If I won, I cannot go… but I’d give the prize to my Mum and Dad :)
    We got cleaned up and painted the town red with our winnings… :)

  9. The Old Boy

    My most memorable Galway Races experience involved a chance meeting with an old acquaintance in a West London bar, strategy meetings in smoky back-rooms, a man disguised as a labourer with the Department of Posts and Telegraphs committing an act of sabotage, a portmanteau filled with neatly bundled fifty-pound notes, and several unsuspecting turf accountants.

    My Most memorable Galway Races experience involved … delivering truck loads of brown envelopes to man in a tent who said he won loads on the races. Who would have believed it.
