Ian Fortune

Bridget Whelan is one of the hardest workers in Irish greyhound racing and has done wonders to turn the fortunes of Enniscorthy in recent years.

I’ve been lucky enough to witness her in full flight on the big nights at Enniscorthy and her dedication and passion for the place is there for all to see. 

Sadly, she has been forced to take a step back from her role at Enniscorthy and, as a result, was in touch to advertise the role of Racing Manager at the Wexford track.

The full advertisement can be seen below. We would like to take this opportunity to wish Bridget the best in the future and we look forward to seeing her back involved in Enniscorthy in the future.
