Pic: Bad news folks. Looks like Ladies’ Day at the Galway Races is going to be a washout
Heading to Ladies’ Day tomorrow? Better bring the brolly or run for cover because the forecast ain’t good. It ain’t good at all.
Ladies’ Day is arguably the highlight of the Galway Festival in Ballybrit as girls from far and wide dress up to the nines and the fillies on the track aren’t the only ones that male race-goers want to keep an eye on.
As one of the wettest parts of the country, Galway Races regulars know that the heavens are likely to open at some stage and having already been subjected to a downpour today, it looks like there’s going to be more of where that came from for Ladies’ Day tomorrow.
The latest rainfall radar on the Met Eireann website doesn’t look at all promising and while temperatures are likely to remain around the late teens to early twenties mark, heavy rain, thundery downpours and even instances of flash flooding have also been predicted. Balls.
As we’ve discovered in recent weeks, everything is better when the sun is shining, but the weather won’t have too much of an impact on people’s enjoyment of the races in Ballybrit tomorrow or Blur’s much-anticipated gig in Kilmainham tomorrow night.
Might want to have the wet-weather gear handy though, because it could get messy.
