The Irish Focus will be released on from 6pm this evening. There is a huge amount to look back on from the past week including the opening round of the Sporting Press Online Edition Irish Oaks from Shelbourne Park on Saturday.

Twenty-four hours earlier at the same venue, Ballinakill Alf was a superb winner of the Islandbridge Open Sprint and we will do a review of the display, while we will also bring you the final of the Lee Strand 550 from Tralee.

We will also look back on the final of the Friends of Newbridge Derby at the Kildare venue from Friday and the semi-finals of the Deadly Kennels Open 750 from Cork on Saturday.

As an added bonus, we will bring you the final of the DG Dog Foods Ltd A4 tri-distance from Waterford. Of course, the richest race over the weekend was the final of the Champion Open Unraced from Kilkenny and will look back at the run of Moanteen Wildcat. 

Head over to after 6pm and remind yourself of what a wonderful weekend it was in Irish greyhound racing.
