St Pat’s volunteer Nathan Fell was spotted testing out the Pimms Tent ahead of the big race day this weekend.

The Pimms tent has been a talking point of this year’s St Pat’s Races as it is a new addition and has locals very excited.

St Pat’s secretary Kimberley Fell said almost all booked places have been sold.

“It is going really well, Lindy’s Lawn Lounge is nearly all sold out,” she said.

“We have people call asking for picnic sites - so we might have to look at extending them next year to provide more sites.

“The memberships are selling really well.”

Ms Fell said all the volunteers and businesses who had donated their time were working very hard at the racecourse.

“It is coming along really well.

“The sale of souvenirs is starting to pick up and they will be available for sale at the racecourse.

“There will also be ATM facilities available - so people don’t have to worry.”

Ms Fell said they listened to feedback from previous years and took that on coming into this year’s event.

The day is set to provide some perfect weather with temperatures predicted at 33 degrees.

“With the luck of the Irish, hopefully it will be a pleasant day. The weather is looking lovely,” she said.
