UL Greyhound Society at the Kirby Semis

The recently formed University Of Limerick Greyhound Racing Society, the first of it's kind, will hold their official Limerick launch on this coming Saturday as part on an exciting night which hosts the semi-finals of the 2017 Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Puppy Stake at Limerick Greyhound Stadium.

An enthusiastic group with a passion and aspiration to promote greyhound racing within their student community and beyond, they look forward to engaging with all participants in the sport while welcoming any and all suggestions for the future of the society as they seek to grow while exposing greyhound racing to a wider audience.

The society will also be present at Limerick this coming Friday evening as they own a share in Rastaboombasta who is the second racing representative for the Joes Army Syndicate which was formed by Society Joint Chairman Joe Sheahan. He makes his debut in A7 grade and has realistic claims to bring a victory for the new group at their very first attempt.

We wish them the very best of luck in all their future sporting endeavours while commending their commitment to the future of greyhound racing and it's continuing promotion.

 University Of Limerick Greyhound Racing Society

We are a group of students from UL who all share a common interest in greyhounds. This is an exciting opportunity to promote and develop the greyhound industry with specification on the youth. We want to encourage the younger generation into our great sport. We are looking forward to getting involved with greyhound re-homing organisations such as the IRGT as well as activities such as kennel visits and visiting various tracks. We also currently have shares in two greyhounds who will be running soon and we are hoping to raise enough money to finance our very own dog in due course.

We are delighted with the recognition we have received from the Limerick Greyhound Stadium and we hope this is one of many events for the society. We have already achieved so much, especially regarding the introduction of greyhounds to a new and wider audience as some of our members have never been involved with greyhounds before. We envisage this to spread to other universities around Ireland. We are hoping this will create a youth movement in greyhound racing.

Thanks to the Limerick Greyhound Stadium for having us tonight, especially Liam Kennedy and John McCarthy.
