In a surprise announcement, Tom Rudd confirmed that he is leaving his role as General Manager at Limerick Racecourse later this month.

He had held the position at Greenmount Park, Patrickswell since late summer 2022.

In an interview with The Irish Field, Rudd explained: “The time is right for me to make this announcement. I have taken this decision due to a change in my personal circumstances, and ongoing commuting to Limerick on a daily basis is not feasible for me. I have enjoyed by role at Limerick, building on its past successes, and I believe I leave the racecourse in good shape for the future.”

He added: “I am going to take a little time now to consider my options. The experience I have gained while working here has given me invaluable business insights, and together with my previous roles in the industry, has opened a number of possibilities going forward.

“I would like to thank the Chairman and Board of Limerick Race Company for the opportunity they me and also their help and support in the intervening period.”

Chairman Mark McMahon said: “We are grateful for the good work Tom did for us over the last 18 months, particularly building closer relationships with all stakeholders in the industry.”
