Save Longford Track, Ireland

Longford Track Supporters Club Fundraiser:

At a meeting held at the track on August 15th a survival plan for the future of Longford Greyhound Stadium was discussed. Over 100 people from all over Ireland attended and heard that basically there are 2 options for the track:

* Close down on Friday August 23rd
* Deal with the urgent issues raised by the Fire Officer and other financial requirements by raising funds immediately.

It is estimated that if we raised €25,000 in the next 2 weeks that racing at the track could continue to October.
It was clearly pointed out that raising these funds will NOT guarantee that racing will continue after October. The track will also require a further €20,000 to survive after that.

Basically it’s a big gamble, but faced with the other option of closing immediately those in attendance decided unanimously to fight for the future of the track. The Longford Track Supporters Club have formed a fundraising committee with the aim of raising €25,000 as soon as possible. This figure is easily attainable as the goodwill is there. We are asking owners, trainers and anyone worldwide with an interest in greyhound racing to contribute to the fund.

Thank you for your Support.

About the KennelStud DogsBroodsBreeding Successes

This is a Racing Kennels only

I trained greyhounds on the Independants, under the prefix " Bubbles ", and eventually, after the closure of Warwick and Hinkley, I took out an NGRC licence, and went Open Racing in the UK.

We moved to Ireland in 2006, and started a business, onlygreyhounds.com.

After having a private licence for 12 months, and with a number of people asking if I would train a dog for them, I decided to apply for a public licence.

I have extended my kennels, and can now take 12 occupants. I have access to a 700 yard, and a 400 yard gallop, plus free running in a 6 acre enclosed field.

Amongst my owners are Peter O'Toole and Keith Docherty, owners of the Air Force Prefix.

All Hounds get treated individually, and the very best of everything is given to them.

An inspection is welcome at any time.
