CATWALK models Linda Moran, Kamile Jucyte, Simona Vasiliauskaite, Leonie McGuigan and Ismay McVey (seated) were all dressed up for the official unveiling of the Galway Races festival.

The seven-day festival runs from Monday, July 30 to Sunday, August 5. More than 150,000 are expected, with a prize fund of €1.6m making it one of the biggest racing festivals in the world.

Details of this year's festival were announced and a new Galway Plate unveiled. Matthew Lynch from Dublin, a third-year industrial design student, won a competition to design the Plate. The original trophy, the 'Galway Salver', is currently housed in the National Museum at Collins Barracks. Andrew Downes
