Where Champions Are Mad
The word "Curragh" means place of the running horse.
The Irish turf club was founded in the coffee rooms in Kildare and it was soon established as the governing body for horse racing throughout Ireland.
The new Curragh will see the creation of world class facilities on a par with the best anywhere in the world. The centrepiece of the redevelopment will see the creation of a major new grandstand which will incorporate five star corporate facilities, restaurants, bars and superb viewing facilities.
It will also include a new arrivals and reception area, a new parade ring, and a new weigh room.
The super new Grandstand and facilities are due to open for the 2019 season.
