Kilsaran Products Featured:
Kilsaran International collaborated with John Sisk & Son, as the main contractor to construct the magnificent facilities at the home of Irish flat racing – The Curragh.
The new Curragh will see the creation of world class multi-purpose facilities on a par with the best anywhere in the world.
The new venue will respect both the great heritage of the Curragh and the importance of celebrating the unique landscape of the Curragh plains, whilst retaining the intimate and distinctive character of the existing racecourse grounds. The redevelopment aims to upgrade the facilities and amenities of the site with an innovative design that will create a sense of arrival, atmosphere and excitement.
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 for the public. A new arrivals and reception area will incorporate a brand new visitor attraction incorporating a museum to celebrate the history of racing in Ireland and the contribution Ireland has made to the sport worldwide. A new parade ring will ensure that more patrons can share in the excitement and build up to the racing. A new weigh room will provide even better facilities for the jockeys.
Demolition of the old Curragh grandstand and Weigh Room commenced in January 2017 and was completed in June, while they are also currently working on the reconstruction of the historic Viewing Stand as a stand-alone feature, which was first built in the 1850s to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria.
