Frenchpark Races:

An Annual Event now weather permitting, Frenchpark hosts a day of Pony Racing and a family fun day each July .  This year we were blessed with a good dry day and had a  nice turnout for the event. Racing Punters were able to have a flutter and the children enjoyed themselves on bouncy castles.  Next year come along and bring your binoculars.

In Frenchpark we have a variety of active sporting groups.  Western Gaels GAA club play at home here in Nash Park.  They are a long established club with a big following.  Information can be found on their webpage with updates of fixtures etc at

There is also an active Gun Club and Boxing Club in the area.  Lots of nice quiet roads for a short stroll or a longer ramble. The Demesne walk is a nice loop walk favoured by many while the Cloonshanville road out through the tranquil bog is a favourite with dog owners.

Soccer training also takes place for children on saturday mornings at Nash Park with a newly running light training session for the ladies on Tuesday and Thursday nights – more affectionately referred to “Yummy Mummy” training.  However you don’t need to be a mummy ladies, all are welcome.
