The Races on Culleenamore Strand

Horse races on the strand feature in the play ‘The Playboy of the Western World’ by John Millington Synge and in John Ford’s film ‘The Quiet Man’ and they have been drawn and painted with great affection by the artist Jack Yeats. The races on Culleenamore Strand, Co Sligo, were a spectacular occasion of colour and drama in a stunning landscape. It is not hard to see why playwrights, film-makers and artists are drawn to horse racing on the strand.
