With total prize-money of €4.03m, Longines Irish Champions Weekend once again attracted the best of international competition to Leopardstown and the Curragh on the 12th and 13th of September, 2015. The Group 1 QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on the opening afternoon saw the John Gosden-trained Epsom Derby hero Golden Horn prevail under Frankie Dettori while the Palmerstown House Estate Irish St Leger was the feature at the Curragh on the second day and it was won in stunning fashion by Aidan O'Brien’s Order Of St George. Once again, both days of Longines Irish Champions Weekend attracted great crowds with 24,164 in attendance. Other big winners on the track included Legatissimo, the winner of the Group 1 Coolmore Fastnet Rock for David Wachman and County Cork jockey Wayne Lordan and the Aidan O'Brien-trained Minding and Air Force Blue who won the Group 1 Moyglare Stud Stakes and the Group 1 Goffs Vincent O’Brien National Stakes respectively.
