Cllr Chris Andrews raises concerns about sale of Harold’s Cross greyhound stadium

18 December, 2014


Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor Chris Andrews has echoed community concerns relating to the proposed sale of Harold’s Cross greyhound stadium.

Speaking this morning Cllr. Andrews said

“The proposal by Bord na gCon to sell Harold’s Cross stadium raises serious concerns for local residents which have not been addressed by the board. The stadium is a vital local amenity and should be maintained as an area of leisure for the residents of Harold’s Cross, Rathmines, Kimmage and Terenure."

“Over the years the stadium has been a focal point for the community, an important source of local employment and has been a home for greyhound racing, as well as having a rich history as a ground for numerous League of Ireland clubs throughout the years. Whatever its future as a greyhound stadium its value to the local community must be preserved.”
