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
or
* 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.

About the KennelStud DogsBroodsBreeding Successes








Kennels situated in Donegal Ireland! Built in 2004 Moved my kennels to Buncrana Ireland and built new kennell block from the proceeds i having a very successful restaurant in Scotland. Have had numerous winners since building Kennels in Ireland. Runner up National IGB 750 Yards Group 1. Winner Paddy Power dot com on derby night 2007, Winner Breeders Cup Derry 2005. Most enjoyable result taking 5 dogs to run at Derry and having 5 winners. Got really pissed up that night with owners. Best dogs we have had the pleasure in training and schooling were Oran Premier Oran Silver Ardera Spice Aussies Impact Oran Majestic while we were training for Irelands biggest owners Des & Elliot Whyte. Oran Majestic went on to win the Irish Oaks and Puppy Derby. Plus trained numerous other winners in Ireland.Very much a greyhound enthusiast being in the industry since i was 9 years of age as my father was a trainer of greyhounds and Horses. I have trained dogs in Ireland England and Australia. My trade background is Executive Chef for which i have worked in many top restaurents around Europe Asia and Australia while the wife under my guidance looked after kennel while i was away working to keep the kennel going. Favourite sport Rugby(Munster) and Football(Manchester City) Enjoy a good pint of Guinness when the wife allows. Ireland i believe is the grass roots of greyhound racing. Its a great atmosphere at the tracks.
