Fitzers Catering will now begin a mobilisation process which includes developing the bars and restaurant facilities in Leopardstown. Brian Kavanagh, Chief Executive of Horse Racing Ireland commented, “HRI welcomes Fitzers Catering on board as official catering partner for Leopardstown, Fairyhouse and Navan Racecourses. We look forward to working in tandem with this highly esteemed company with a clear strategy to provide high quality catering as part of the horse racing experience.” Barry Storey, Managing Director of Fitzers Catering said, “We are truly delighted to have won these three contracts. Horse racing is a hugely important staple in Irish culture, in addition to being an excellent sporting hospitality option and as an indigenous Irish company we are proud to be appointed as cateringpartners and to be part of this fully Irish business partnership.”
