Conditions of Re-Use of GRI Information


Rásaíocht con Éireann (otherwise known as Greyhound Racing Ireland) (referred to herein as “GRI”) complies with the regulations on the Re-use of Public Sector Information S.I. 279/2005; European Communities (Re-use of Public Sector Information) Regulations 2005, as amended (“the Regulations”) and encourages the re-use of the information and documentation that it produces.

Information and documents created by GRI i.e. GRI’s copyrighted material, may be reproduced and/or re-used free of charge subject to the terms of this licence.  Further information on the re-use of public sector information can be found at

This licence shall apply to all GRI information, whether circulated via its website, social media channels or otherwise.

The word ‘Information’ in this licence shall be deemed to include all GRI copyrighted material including any “document” as defined in the Regulations, which for the avoidance of doubt shall include greyhound race video content.

It is important to note that the Regulations provide a statutory appeals mechanism to the Office of the Information Commissioner, details of which can be found here:
