New Limerick greyhound stadium is on track to bring in crowds (Limerick Leader)
By Mike Dwane
WITH just under two weeks to go to the grand opening of the â‚¬18 million, 2,900-capacity Limerick Greyhound Stadium on the Dock Road, management is reporting a healthy interest in the new venue for benefit nights and social occasions.
Olivia O’Sullivan, PRO of the Young Munster women’s team, said that in the new track, she has found the “perfect” venue for an upcoming fashion show and fundraiser.
Despite winning AIL honours with Young Munster’s rivals Shannon, Limerick Greyhound Stadium’s commercial and operations manager Declan O’Halloran said he was delighted to give Olivia the full guided tour of hospitality facilities ahead of opening night on October 8.
“I was really curious to come out and see for myself what everyone has been talking about and I haven’t been disappointed,” said Olivia.
“What I have found is a perfect entertainment venue, with large capacity, loads of natural light and most importantly an efficient team on the ground, led by Declan, who are so encouraging and helpful as we plan our fundraiser.
“The fact that everyone is so curious to see the new Limerick Greyhound Stadium will add to our special night and I am so looking forward to bringing our fashion event here in November.”
Limerick Greyhound Stadium boasts a 190-seat restaurant, private hospitality suites and gallery bars.
