Racing is currently running behind closed doors.
That means we unfortunately can't offer you the usual fundraising ideas right now but hopefully soon. It's never too early to start planning so call us to get chatting.
For clubs or other groups looking to raise money, a night at the dogs is one of the most social and enjoyable ways of going about it.
Depending on the numbers you expect to attract, you can attend an existing night in Galway – or even stage a one-off night that’s all about your group.
You’ll enjoy a discounted rate on general admission, plus a range of special offers from our bar and restaurant.
Every year millions of euro is raised for clubs, organisations, schools and charities at local Greyhound Stadia right across Ireland. So not alone can you raise some badly needed funds, but your club members and their friends can enjoy a great night out at the same time, building an even stronger club spirit.

Fundraising at the Dogs!
Among the facilities at Galway are:
Did you know that 2% of ALL winning prizemoney is donated to the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust? And that Greyhound Racing Ireland then match that amount in another donation?
So that means that not only is your cause raising funds from your fundraising event but so is the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT).

"Every year GAA clubs across the country, like ours in Ballinderreen, sit down to think about ways to fundraise for the season ahead. Although we are a relatively small club (about 240 children playing hurling and camogie) we have a big heart and big drive to constantly develop our teams and facilities. There are lots of interesting and innovative ways to bring in badly needed funds, from fashion shows to tree planting, but this year we found a really excellent partner in the Galway Greyhound Stadium. Fintan, Laura and team made sure we were well prepared in advance and helped us thoroughly plan our 'Night at the Dogs'. We had a fantastic evening at the stadium, it will be remembered by all for a long time to come. The facilities, organisation and service were all excellent. It was a real community event for young and old from Ballinderreen, and was a great commercial success for us too. On behalf of the hurling and camogie clubs we wish to sincerely thank you all for making this happen!"

I approached the Galway greyhound track with the possibility of running a fundraising night for the club. Laura Connolly and all the staff at the track were extremely helpful and and gave us great advice. It was a resounding success.
I would highly recommend any club or society who are fundraising to contact Laura and the Galway greyhound track team.
Thank you again for all your support.
