Get Ready. Get Set. Celebrate Limerick Greyhound Stadium's First Birthday

The traps are ready, the greyhounds are primed, the atmosphere is guaranteed to be electric… and the countdown has begun to Limerick Greyhound Stadium’s First Birthday, which takes place on Friday 7th October!

Limerick Greyhound Stadium’s first birthday celebrations will feature a host of surprises for race goers including live music, fabulous food, a chance to walk away with some great prizes, and of course, 12 thrilling races.  Doors open at 6.30pm and the first race of this special night will commence at 7.45pm.

Sharing his first birthday with Limerick Greyhound Stadium is baby Eoin Keane. Eoin who turns one on the same day as the stadium will be coming along with his family and a number of other special guests who also share their birthday with Limerick Greyhound Stadium. They will all join in the birthday celebrations, eat some cake and enjoy great racing.

Under the direction of Imelda Cahalan, Sales, Commercial and Operations Manager at Limerick Greyhound Stadium, the first year at the state of the art venue has been a monumental success and indeed a great asset to Limerick city and county and the Mid-West.  Speaking about the one year milestone, Imelda said “The stadium has provided the people of Limerick and surrounding areas with a venue which guarantees a night out with a difference.  We’ve hosted over 1,200 races, 100 race meetings and seen a huge footfall in the last year, many of which had never been greyhound racing before.”

Cahalan added: “In the past year, Limerick Greyhound Stadium has given a massive boost to the Limerick economy with the creation of 100 full and part time positions at our world class facility.  The boost came not just from the full and part time jobs, but also from the variety of associated businesses that benefited as a direct result of the state-of-the-art venue which attracted up to 2,000 people every Friday and Saturday evening.”

Limerick Greyhound Stadium is an ultramodern, family friendly venue, designed to ensure guests have a great night out.  The stadium is easily accessible and just a short distance from Limerick City Centre, with 750 secure parking spaces.  The track, which is among the finest greyhound stadiums in the world, has a spacious viewing area, private and exclusive hospitality suites, an impressive bar and 190 seater restaurant; all of which have been a significant attraction for people in the Mid-West region.  The restaurant facilities have been complemented, in no small way, by the superb dining experience provided by the people at Kudos Creative Catering.  

The facility also houses the headquarters of the Irish Greyhound Board, and as well as its regular race meetings, plays host to a myriad of other entertainment events, including a number of hugely successful benefit nights.  The staff at Limerick Greyhound Stadium provide support for any organisation wishing to hold a benefit night, and are dedicated to facilitating the non-profit community with a range of services that support fundraising efforts.

All are welcome to come and celebrate Limerick Greyhound Stadium’s on Friday 7th October, and a family ticket costs just €20 for two adults and four children.  For further information on the birthday celebrations, upcoming races or the Irish Greyhound Board, visit or call 1890 269 969.
