Keep Longford Racing Fund
Longford Track Committee and the Track Supporters Club have set up a ‘Keep Longford Racing Fund’ to guarantee the future sustainability of the Track.
The target is €25,000 which is the nett annual cost of operating the track.
We are asking all those who have an interest in Longford Greyhound Stadium and racing in general to contribute a payment of €200 to the Fund. We are appealing to people countrywide to show support, be it owners, trainers, feed suppliers, stud keepers, vets and others who are part of the greyhound industry.
€200 may sound like a lot…. but it
= cost of a trial per week
= one race win per year.
A small price to pay for the continuation of racing at your track!
To start the ball rolling, all members of the Track Committee and the Track Supporters Club Committee have pledged to contribute €200 each to the fund. The fund will be administered by a member of the Track Committee and a member of the Track Supporters Club. Annual accounts will be produced and forwarded to each contributor’s email (or as otherwise agreed for those without email addresses).
Payments can be made into the Keep Longford Racing Fund to the Bank account number 39046196, Sort code 90-17-73. The IBAN is IE30 BOFI 9017-7339-0461-96 and the BIC is BOFIIE2D.
Payments can be made either monthly (@ €20/month for 10 months) or preferably in one payment.
Cheques can be made payable to ‘Keep Longford Racing Fund’. Please send cheques to Keep Longford Racing c/o Fund Administrators, Longford Greyhound Stadium, Park Road, Longford.
Receipts will be issued for all payments. To reduce administration costs especially printing & postage we would ask that subscribers forward their email addresses to Joe O’Rourke.
For further information about the Keep Longford Racing Fund contact Joe O’Rourke on 087 9088555 or email
We all need to pull together to make this a success and guarantee the future of racing at our track.
