The Final of the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial 2022 has been moved by one day, Derek Frehill, Director of Racing for Greyhound Racing Ireland, has confirmed.
The Final at Limerick Greyhound Stadium will now be hosted on Friday 22nd April.
GRI had flagged the potential of a clash with an evening fixture for Limerick GAA which was scheduled for Saturday 23rd. In light of this and given the involvement of Limerick GAA Clubs in the Con & Annie Kirby the arrangements were reviewed.
Derek Frehill, Director of Racing for GRI commented: "The 2022 Greyhound Racing Calendar were announced before the dates and times of the Limerick GAA fixtures were known. However, once that was released it became clear that there would be a possible clash with a home fixture on the scheduled final night of the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial. Given the partnership with Limerick GAA with the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Final, the decision was made, in conjunction with the sponsors, to move the final by one night to Friday 22nd April. All other heats will run on Saturdays as normal"
