Punchestown shopfront competition is extended

Winner of Paint the Town Red to be announced today

The Punchestown ‘Paint the Town Red’ campaign in association with Bank of Ireland was a great success in it’s fourth year running.

The initiative asked local businesses to get festive and decorate their shop fronts in racing-related themes, with prizes up for grabs for the most creative.

Finalists from Blessington, Ballymore, Kilcullen and Naas were named yesterday, and will each receive €800.

The overall winner receives €1,500 plus the use of a private suite at the racetrack on a non-festival race day, and will be announced at 3.10pm today (April 25) in the Parade Ring as the first day of Punchestown gets underway.

Best of luck to all involved!
