About Property Race Day Ireland

The Property Race Day 2018

The fifth annual Property Race Day took place on Thursday, 14th June, 2018 and saw the industry gather together to raise €140,000 for To Children With Love and ISPCC.

Over 450 of Ireland’s property, investment and financial leaders gathered in the Pavilion, Leopardstown for an exciting and entertaining day beginning with a Moët & Chandon and Heineken drinks reception. Entertainment was courtesy of Releasing Rhythms, a brass and steel drum ensemble who flew in specially for the event.

After last year’s popular performance, Ivan Yates returned as MC, hosting a surprise panel with sporting greats champion jockey Ruby Walsh, Kilkenny ten-time All-Ireland hurler Henry Shefflin and professional golfer Peter Lawrie.

Amidst the excitement of the races, cocktail supremos from House mixed up delicious drinks as guests bid on an array of incredible prizes at the charity auction, raising over €50,000. Among the amazing prizes on offer was a private training session for 10 children with Rob and Dave Kearney with tickets to Ireland V Argentina; a trip for two the Ryder Cup in France; and a Chef’s Table experience for six people at the multi-award-winning Chapter One. The prizes proved extremely popular, with one generous guest paying €10,000 for tickets to U2’s sold-out concert at the 3 Arena this autumn.

To date, Property Race Day Ireland has raised over €500,000 for Irish charities, and commenting on the event, President of Property Race Day Ireland, Mark FitzGerald, said, “ We were delighted with the funds raised to date and intend to grow this for the benefit of all of these worthy causes involved in the years ahead.”


We are delighted that the Property Race Day Ireland has become the number one event in the Irish property and property financing calendar while raising much needed funds for children’s charities.

The Property Race Day Ireland was launched in 2014 following on from the success of the Property Race Day at Ascot, where the UK Committee has raised over £1.2 Million for children’s charities since inception. We would like to give our sincere thanks to the organisers, Invoke PR & Events and Ivan Yates, our MC, and celebrity guests.
We would also like to acknowledge the generous support of the Cornerstone Sponsors Bank of Ireland, CBRE and Arthur Cox, along with each of the organisations who attended.

The President, Mark FitzGerald, along with myself and each of the Committee members, Paul McDonnell, Johnny Horgan, Jamie Rohan, Suzie Cruess-Callaghan, Paul G Grimes, we look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Andrew Gunne
The Property Race Day Ireland Committee

Welcome from the President

The Property Race Day is now in its sixth year and the committee, with Andrew as Chairman, once again approached this wonderful event with a huge sense of purpose, determined to make it a financial success for such genuine causes. Of course, they also wanted to ensure that it was a great event for all those who supported it and hopefully will continue to do so in future years.

The property industry is a hugely competitive one but it is fundamentally an industry with a lot of good and decent people, who can come together on an occasion like this for a higher purpose and with a sense of fun.
