Derek Lucie-Smith Remembered

Derek Lucie-Smith Remembered

Derek Lucie-Smith was born in December 1947 and passed away in January this year, 2016. Amongst his many business achievements, he was a Co-Founder of the Property Race Day in 2007 with a number of close like-minded friends. Derek’s eagerness to ‘give something back’ coupled with a passion for horses and popularity within the real estate financing community, all came together to kick-start the event. The fact that the Property Race Day UK has raised over £1.5 million to date is testament to its success. From the outset, Derek was a huge supporter of the Property Race Day. He was always on hand for advice. He never made it over for any of them but was always keenly interested to hear how it was progressing. His enthusiasm and love for life and never giving up was infectious and he’ll be remembered by all of us, particularly his good friend John Hall who was an equal driving force behind the event and who continues to serve on the PRDI Committee up to today.

Derek will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

PRD 2020

Due to the current circumstances, we have made the enormously difficult decision to cancel the Property Race Day in 2020.

This comes at a great price for our chosen charities, the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC) and FOCUS Ireland, both of whom need the support of the property industry now more than ever.

Please advise us if you wish to make a contribution.

The Property Race Day Committee was excited about getting the industry back together but it wasn’t to be this year. In saying this, we are looking forward to making next year an even better event and, with your support, we will still reach our goal of €1 million by the year 2024.
Thank you for your ongoing support, we look forward to being in touch with further information regarding next years’ standout event.
