I had never been to the galway races myself until this year when I got the chance to make a short video to sum up the unique experience that the galway races offer.
The course at ballybrit is very quiet early in the morning asthe setup begins and quickly the mood is lifted with the arrival of thousands of women looking to take the prize of best dressed.
Photographers and tv crews run around to try and predict who will take the title but it was not until 3.30 that we found out that Suzanne McGarry would be this years winner.
We also got a quick interview from Glenda Gilson who filled us in about the fashion of the day with what was in and what she also thought of galway.
All in all the shoot was a great experience and I had help from Cian Ó Srutháin which made the logistics of the day much easier.
At the end of the day we headed into shop street and other areas of Galway city to see the famous crowds gathered on the streets for ladies day celebrations and the craic was mighty!
