IGB STATEMENT: THURLES GREYHOUND STADIUM PROTEST

IGB

The Irish Greyhound Board (IGB) is aware of a protest that took place outside Thurles Greyhound Stadium on Saturday night.

The IGB respects the right to peaceful protest and has consistently accommodated protestors at its venues in recent times.

Imagery of the protest circulated on social media contains harmful and abhorrent comments directed towards the disabled community and various ethnic minorities. The IGB condemns them in the highest possible terms.

The IGB continues to ask that the rights of all parties are fully respected in the conduct of any protests at greyhound tracks or stadia. There should be no concerns if a protest is carried out in a peaceful manner.
