A follow on to the popular Our People, Their Stories series, in early 2020 we launched Our People, Their Day. This series showcases a day in the life of people from all walks of our industry, incuding a greyhound trainer, control steward and the staff of the IGB National Laboratory.
A young greyhound trainer, with no family experience in the sport, who has carved her own career and built her facilities and business from scratch.
We follow Deirdre through her day from breakfast time, through to exercising her racing greyhounds and young pups, to a race night in Shelbourne Park.
Meet Michael, a Stipendary Steward, and the team at Ballymac Kennels.
We join Michael as he carries out some of his duties and visits the Ballymac Kennels in Co. Kerry. Trainer Liam Dowling and his family and staff run a large training kennel and we go behind the scenes at a typical kennel inspection carried out routinely by the IGB's Regulations and Welfare Department.
He takes us behind the scenes of the IGB's National Greyhound Laboratory and the work they do to support the Irish Greyhound Racing industry.
More videos coming soon.
