Greyhound History

Thurles Greyhound stadium hosted their 75th anniversary celebration on Saturday 27th October 2023. This got me thinking about all the wonderful greyhound people and great greyhounds that came from Borrisoleigh over the years. There are so many funny stories and famous victories and lifelong friendships that were built through owning greyhounds and I would love to hear from anyone who has a photo, a story or a memory to share.
I’m interested in all stories and old photos  connected to greyhounds not just the champions.
Hopefully I’ll find out some interesting information put something together to be published on this Borrisoleigh website in a few weeks time.
Thanks very much.
