Master McGrath Festival is named after a greyhound who became an Irish National hero by beating England’s racing pride ‘White Rose’ and carrying back the coveted Waterloo Cup to Ireland three times.
The dog was born at Colligan Lodge, the home of James Galway, a well known trainer and owner of Greyhounds in Dungarvan, County Waterford in 1867, where Lord Lurgan had sent down one of his dogs for breeding. A small, weak pup, he went on to become the most celebrated and successful racing dog of his time.
This one night music event is the first of its kind within the town and will take place on Saturday 8th June 2019 at 6pm – 11pm, within the grounds of Brownlow House. It is anticipated that over 3,000 people will be in attendance with a mix of headline acts from both Northern Ireland and England.
