Fundraising Testimonials - Limerick Greyhound Stadium

Limerick County Camogie board in conjunction with our clubs throughout the county held successful dog nights at Limerick Greyhound Stadium. These were major fundraising events to help raise much needed funds for the on-going development and promotion of Camogie in Limerick. As well as the financial benefit associated with the events we also benefitted from the social aspect of the dog nights which were well supported by all age groups with everybody having a great nights entertainment.

We very much appreciated the assistance and co-operation of the management of limerick greyhound stadium in helping us organise and run the event. We found the venue and facilities to be very suitable to our circumstances and needs particularly bearing in mind the large number of children who came along to enjoy the evening.

Maurice Barrett, Treasurer, Limerick County Camogie Board

For the past six years, St. Gabriel’s School & Centre for children with multiple disabilities have held their annual benefit night at the Limerick Greyhound Stadium. These benefit nights have been very successful due to the generosity and involvement of our many sponsors and patrons to which we are very grateful. We wish the management and staff of the Limerick Greyhound Stadium many more years of success.

Kate Sheahan, St.Gabriel’s

St James’s National School Cappagh held their ‘Buster Fundraising Night’ on Friday, November 29th. We had a huge turnout at the Limerick Greyhound Stadium on what proved to be a very successful gathering. The children enjoyed the novelty events and the punters were kept busy with the races which were run off in quick succession. The Board of Management and parents association at St. James’s National School wish to acknowledge the huge effort put in by the management and staff of the Limerick Greyhound Stadium, in particular Siobhan Scanlon who has worked closely with us over the last few months in helping make this event such a success. We would like everybody to know that all the hard work has delivered €11,685 to fund renovations at our local school. Once again, thank you.
