The voting took place last Wednesday for the Irish Greyhounds of the Year and there are few surprises in the list of nominations.
The format is similar to recent years with three nominations for each category but the winners will not be revealed until the night of the Awards Function.
This year’s Greyhound Awards will again be staged at the Killashee Hotel, Naas on Sunday, March 24th with the gala kicking off at 5pm. Tickets can be purchased for €40 per person and €15 for children.
