Almost four months after it shut without warning, Harold's Cross Greyhound Stadium has been sold. The dog track - which was a sister stadium to Shelbourne - was closed to avoid the company going bust.
Since February all races have been held at Shelbourne Park, which the Irish Greyhound Board said was vital to tackle an enormous €20 million debt.
12 staff were redeployed, and the weekly racing programme at Shelbourne Park doubled from two days a week to four.
Today it was confirmed that the Department of Education and Skills had bought the old Harold's Cross stadium, although it is not immediately clear what it will be used for.
Phil Meaney, Chairman of the Irish Greyhound Board said the sale will allow the group "to invest in the many areas that require support and attention."
"The IGB is committed to ensuring the connection to the Harold's Cross fraternity remains and we will go to great lengths to accommodate them at Shelbourne Park in a welcoming and respectful way."
