Lowry is clearly a fan of horse racing and has his own horse called Theatre of War. In a piece for Paddy Power he said;
“I’m really excited my horse Theatre of War is running for the first time at Cheltenham this week – but unfortunately I won’t be there to see it.
“After winning The Open last year I wanted to do something for my friends back home, so me and a few of the lads decided to buy a racehorse together.
“It’s run a few times so far, and having started well it then fell a few times. But he rediscovered his form at the end of last year, and had a great run at Leopardstown over Christmas which qualified him for Cheltenham.”
Speaking of Paddy Power, Lowry has a partnership with the company. He has been a golf ambassador for them since April 2019.
Lowry also does charity work as an ambassador for Temple Street Children’s Hospital. His wife, Wendy, had worked there as a nurse.
He also sponsors the Offaly Gaelic Athletic Association, having agreed a five-year sponsorship arrangement in 2021. His father, Brendan, had played Gaelic football for the Offaly side which won the 1982 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship Final. Two of Shane’s uncles had also been in the team.
