Thanks to all who supported the Inaugural Road Hurling Tournament held on St. Patrick’s Day. We had many participants, young and old.

Con and Annie Kirby Memorial stake 2023:
The 10th Annual Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Stake is back on in Limerick Greyhound Stadium, with the First and Second Rounds taking place on Saturday 25th March and Saturday 1st April respectively followed by the Semi-Finals on Saturday 8th April and Saturday 15th April. The 2023 Final will be held on Friday 21st April.
This is one of the world’s top Juvenile racing events and is sponsored by JP and Noreen McManus in honour of her parents who were well known greyhound owners and trainers having operated in the old track in The Markets Field in Garryowen.
One of the highlights of this annual event is the ongoing partnership with Limerick GAA, which has seen clubs from across the city and county get involved in the action due to the nominator competition. The winning greyhound’s assigned GAA club wins a nominator prize of €10,000 and a free benefit night at Limerick Greyhound Stadium.
A night at the dogs is always a great night out and the Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Stake gives our Club members a great opportunity to meet up and enjoy a night together in the fabulous greyhound stadium.
We’ll see you there over the next 5 weeks!
