TALKING DOGS ON THURSDAY EPISODE 75: FRANCIS MURRAY JNR

Barry Drake

Francis Murray Jnr joins Barry Drake this week.

The Murray family are well-known in the sport and it all began with Francis’ grandfather, with greyhounds first coming into the family in 1927. His father followed suit, taking out a licence in 1977, and since then has won almost all of the big competitions in Greyhound Racing and is still going strong. Based outside Mullingar, the operation is very much a family business with all ages getting involved and getting great enjoyment from the dogs.

Francis Jnr chats to Barry about the family’s great successes, many memories of growing up in the sport and the great lifestyle that they have through the sport. They also chat about their current greyhounds and hopes for 2022.
