When is the Irish Grand National 2024? Fairyhouse date, start time, runners and betting

Must read

Forget about chocolate eggs, the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse is the best thing about Easter.

Boasting a prize pot worth €500,000, with the winner bagging a cool €270,000 for connections, the marathon contest is the richest race of the National Hunt season in Ireland.

A stamina-sapping 3m5f trip awaits the runners, who need to demonstrate a slick jumping technique as there are 24 fences in their way.

The Irish Grand National honours list is littered with some of the most famous names to have graced the game like Arkle and Desert Orchid, while Numbersixvalverde was the last to achieve the Aintree/Fairyhouse double.

I Am Maximus landed last year’s renewal but trainer Willie Mullins has earmarked the winner for a shot at the English equivalent so a new winner is set to be anointed.

You can run the rule over our Irish Grand National odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about next year’s renewal can be found below.
