New all-weather race track in Tipperary could be ready within 2 to 3 years

The CEO of Horse Racing Ireland, Brian Kavanagh, says it’s hoped that the facility at Tipperary Racecourse in Limerick Junction will be completed in 2022 or 2023, with a provisional budget of €20 to €22 million.

It’s one of the key projects that’s been outlined in today’s Horse Racing Ireland five-year strategic plan, but will be subject to funding approval.
