Galway Racecourse have today announced a new sponsor for the 2022 Galway Races, for which planning and preparation is already well underway.

Bathshack, the UK and Irish bathroom retailer, have signed a two year sponsorship deal with Galway Racecourse to sponsor the fourth race on the second to last day of the races.

The ‘Bathshack Maiden of €17,000’ will take place on Saturday, July 30 for three-year-olds and up.

Commenting on the new sponsorship, Chief Executive of Galway Racecourse Michael Moloney said that they were delighted to welcome Bathshack as a sponsor for the 2022 summer festival.

“The Galway Races presents many great opportunities for sponsors to engage with a large audience and we look forward to working with the team at Bathshack on making their sponsoring a great success”.

Commenting on their new two-year agreement, Lorraine Kelly at Bathshack said, “with further plans for expansion within Ireland this year we are delighted to be able to increase our brand awareness through such a great sponsorship.”

“We are delighted to sponsor The Galway Races for 2022/23 and cannot wait to see ‘The Bathshack Maiden’ in action on the 30th of July.”

The 2022 Galway Races will run from Monday – Sunday, July 25 – 31, in what promises to be an action packed week welcoming visitors back at Ballybrit this summer.

Last year just 1,000 spectators were allowed to attend the races each, which was still a boost over 2020, when they took place entirely behind closed doors.
