Racecourse Information
Welcome To Clonmel Racecourse
Clonmel, an historic town, lies at the foot of the Comeragh Mountains and is situated in the valley of the beautiful River Suir.

Clonmel racecourse (Powerstown Park) is located in a picturesque setting north of the town. Racing, which had been open and free to spectators for over a hundred years at Clonmel, was enclosed in 1913 by Villiers Morton Jackson and became the commercially run Powerstown Park racecourse.

Morton Jackson also roped in the bookies to a distinct area of the course, banned gaming sideshows, brought in detectives and police to deter pickpockets and provided entry to a roofless grandstand accommodating 1500 at a charge of two shillings a head!

Since then Clonmel has grown and developed and today it is not uncommon to have in excess of 120 horses running at any one meeting. Extensive refurbishment has been carried out at Clonmel Racecourse during 1998. A new grandstand including a Bar and catering complex has been constructed. Along with a new computerised turnstile entrance, the weighroom/jockeys room has also been extensively upgraded and refurbished.
