Those who incorporate the Rose motif into their ensemble will have a definite advantage.

The prize bonanza for "The Rose of the Curragh" will be a series of the Tipperary Crystal Fine jewellery ranges and a range of high quality products from the Tipperary Crystal Giftware and Homeware Collections.

Sunday 27th August will feature a high quality Seven Race Programme with the first race off at 2pm. The TIPPERARY CRYSTAL LADIES INVITATIONAL RACE will be one of the highlights featuring some of the top lady riders, while the Snow Fairy Stakes and Tote Irish Chambridgeshire are other notable races.
