The organizing committee of this years spring show can now confirm that camel racing will take place at this years show. Those wishing to race a camel are asked to attend suitably dressed for the event and there will be a prize for the best dressed jockey on the day. Use of a whip or stick will not be tolerated pulling and kicking will also be monitored by the stewards and those found in breach of the rules will be stood down immediately
Race manager Mr Colm Clarke from the Leitrim Camel Racing society said he is looking forward to getting out of Letrim for the day and may well look for political asylum while in Corofin.
Overnight facilities are needed for Saturday night 19th for 6 camels and two handlers. Clean sheds with running water will suffice.
