SmartBear gone racin’ 2015

The SmartBear team is back in action today after celebrating our summer outing yesterday at the world famous Galway Races. For one week in July each year thousands descend upon the wild west of Ireland for a week of horse racing, joy and merriment. For our American readers, picture the greatest Kentucky Derby party you have ever been to, multiply times 10 and stretch it seven days long. It is just one of the many reasons Galway is truly one of the most vibrant cities in the world.

A blustery but beautiful day at the Races

It was a great day had by all. The ladies of the office looked stunning and the men pulled together a few decent suits at the last minute to fit in with the crowd. Special shout out to our man Rory Gaughan for successfully picking the winning horse on five of six races, leading to some record breaking team bonding after everyone learned quickly to jump on his picks.
