IGB

The Irish Greyhound Board (IGB) has today indicated to the owners and management of Lifford Greyhound Stadium that race cards of a maximum of 12 races can be maintained at the track until the completion and full consideration of a strategic review into the future needs of the Irish greyhound industry, which is currently being compiled by Indecon Economic Consultants.

The IGB expects to be in receipt of this report in early October.

This arrangement is offered to Lifford Greyhound Stadium on the basis of this report maintaining the operation of the track in the coming months.

The IGB is also working to cater for greyhound owners and trainers, traditionally part of Lifford and/or Longford's dog pools, by facilitating extra racing at Mullingar and Dundalk stadia in the near future.
