Minella pushes the boat out!

The Nallen Family of Hotel Minella, Clonmel, gave their generous support at the Limerick Charity Race Day on Monday 14th October, for THE JOCKEYS EMERGENCY FUND, Be There for JT & Jonjo, in purchasing at the Live Auction, a specially commissioned watercolour by Peter Curling for 20,000 euro.

The painting depicts six jockeys, in a different set of some of the most recognisable silks, being splashed about a choppy ocean in a boat. The vessel’s sail adorned appropriately by JP Mc Manus’s silks, which JT McNamara always wore to such great effect.

The clever cartoon illustration partnered the registered owners’ initiative, who pledged a minimum donation to have their colours carried in the commemorative race card, which carried the caption
“ We’re pushing the boat out for JT and Jonjo – nail your colours to the mast.”

Curling’s subtle portrayal of a brave band of adventurers trying to navigate their way through troubled waters gave inspiration for the Irish racing world to give generously in supporting the event.
John J Nallen Trainer and Hotelier with his sister Elizabeth, said “that they were only too delighted to be able donate to such a worthy cause, and that the flagship charity event will inspire similar generosity to keep topping up the Jockeys Emergency Fund.”

“The House itself is classical, with a pair of full-height bows on the garden elevation, which overlook the River Suir. The main rooms are arranged around an elongated central hall which rises to roof level.”

It was in 1961 that a dream came true, and Minella was purchased by the late Jack and Babs Nallen, taking two years of refurbisment, with the opening of their country house hotel in April 1963. Add on another 50 years, with extensive redevelopment and constant refurbishment, Minella is now managed by John and Elizabeth, siblings of Jack and Babs, fulfilling that dream.

The Minella name is also recognised in the world of horse racing, and John is actively involved in the training and breeding of race horses.

So on behalf of our staff, we offer you a very warm welcome to Clonmel and Minella we aim to make you feel as comfortable and “at home” during your stay with us!

John & Elizabeth Nallen
