Day at the Races – Clonmel

On Thursday 3rd of October, Metis Ireland organised a ‘Day at the Races’ in Clonmel.

We started our day by gathering at the Donoughmore Club where we watched the Ireland v Russia match with plenty of coffee, tea and pastries that lovely Eileen freshly made for us that morning. Once the match was over, we headed to Clonmel Racecourse where we had a special room reserved (much needed with Hurricane Lorenzo providing us with plenty of rain!) for all our guests to watch the races in comfort.

There appears to be a lot of expressions that are unique to the Irish (or maybe it’s the same with every race and I am suffering from Familiarity Bias).

Nobody Knows!

I received an email last week from a fund manager inviting me to join a webinar. We get these types of ‘updates’ all the time, this particular one was called ‘What’s in Store for Markets for The Remainder of 2019’.
