Ballinrobe Racecourse

Ballinrobe Racecourse is located one mile from the town on the main Castlebar road (N84). It is the only Racecourse in Mayo and is one of only 4 in Connaught and hosts nine race meetings annually. Ballinrobe possesses a slightly elevated right-handed track and boasts an exceptional view of every stride. Major developments have recently taken place at the Racecourse and include a new modern grandstand, enlarged enclosure, new turnstiles, revamped restaurant, new toilet block, tote betting facilities, two comfortable bars & a press room with broadband connections.

The Problem

John Flannelly first approached us to make parade ring seats & comfortable outdoor benches at the racecourse. John had previously used a combination of metal and timber which had high maintenance costs. John was looking for a bench that was strong and durable, had no splinters and top of his wish list was a maintenance free product. He later approached us for T&G boards for his stable doors. He needed a product that was strong, robust and durable.

The Solution

We showed John a project we had completed in 2010 with Sligo County Council where seating was in situ along the Pier Road, Enniscrone, Co. Sligo. We explained that the boards used were solid, durable and the colour goes right through the profile so it does not need painting and will retain its good look. We delivered the parade ring seats & Claggan benches which gave John the peace of mind that he could now move onto the next project.

The T&G boards fit together snugly for a strong, robust, attractive and durable effect. They do not splinter or break easily, so a kicking animal will not damage them. They are weatherproof – frost, UV-rays, rain, hail, or snow cannot damage them. It’s solid, durable and ideal for both indoor and outdoor stabling maintenance free. The stable unit will not age – it will hold its superior quality which is weather-resistant, unlike wood.

Why use Murray’s Recycled Plastic Benches and T&G Boards for Stables?

All our maintenance free boards used for outdoor furniture are splinter free, making it safe for everyone, especially children. The bonus of the benches being maintenance free is that there will never be any sanding, painting or treatment of any kind required – ever.

The tongue and groove board is made from 100% recycled plastic and comes in 3 colours – brown, black & green. They are a maintenance free alternative to wood and can be used for stables, garage doors, gates, raised beds & planters.

All our products give the customer a peace of mind as they are weatherproof and will never rot when exposed to harsh marine environments – such as our Irish weather. They are sturdy, practical and durable and the perfect solution for domestic use and public spaces. Our maintenance free outdoor furniture is very strong and robust and is crafted to the highest standards.
