Getting in on all the racing action and finding the top tips will benefit a Kerry charity during a local Cheltenham Preview Night.

From Tuesday March 15 to Friday March 18, there'll be four extraordinary days of racing at the popular UK race festival.

However, Killarney Racegoers Club are organising a preview night beforehand, on Wednesday March 9, and will be talking to a panel of guests to give punters the inside scoop.

It begins at 8.30pm sharp in the Fáilte Hotel and is set to benefit the Southwest Counselling Centre.

MC on the night will be Vince Casey.

The panel will include top racing pundit Paddy Wilmott, leading jockey Conor McNamara, racing tipster and analyst Killian Broderick and bookmaker Brendan Tyther.

"The Killarney Racegoers Club have been doing Cheltenham Preview nights since the 1990s," ," Vince told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Last year we did a virtual one and we are really looking forward to doing a live event again this year in the Fáilte. Paddy Wilmott has been on the panel with many years and has given punters some great winners at big prices, while Conor McNamara gave a 33/1 last year. Killian Broderick, another racing enthusiast is a shrewd judge and again looks to give value bets and has been very profitable to follow while Brendan Tyther, who is our only bookmaker in the club, will provide his insights along with providing some special bets on the night," he said.

"We are delighted to partner with Southwest Counselling Centre, who provide a fantastic service to our community and who are dependent on private donations. Last year we raised €1,800 which was spent on a new play area in the centre. While entry is free on the night we are asking people to make a donation to this wonderful cause via our GoFundMe page 'South West Counselling'. All donations will go to the charity."

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
