CON AND ANNIE KIRBY MEMORIAL STAKE 2021
The Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Stake began its’ first round of racing last Saturday night at Limerick Greyhound Racing Track. South Liberties designated dog for this year is “Deadly Destroyer”. This dog is owned by Garry Hannon and trained by Karol Ramsbottom. He stormed to first place in Heat 3 and is expected to be in the business end of these races. So, keep an eye on this guy over the coming weeks and let us hope he produces again next Saturday night.
This year Limerick Greyhound Stadium have also launched their Virtual Fundraising package with the Con & Annie Kirby and Limerick GAA in mind. The concept is based on “bringing the club spirit directly to the home” and is now available for any club wishing to raise funds safely, while joining in on the Con & Annie Kirby buzz!

PITCH SANDING PROJECT
Please support our fundraiser to maintain the quality and condition of our main playing pitch through engaging a contractor to aerate and sand the playing surface. It has been a number of years since the main playing pitch has been sanded and to maintain the pitch in terms of surface quality, drainage, and grass quality, it is recommended that we address this now.
