GREYHOUND AT HAROLDS CROSS [DUBLIN CANVAS PAINT-A-BOX PROGRAMME]
This is located near the small post office in Harold's Cross and not far from the Greyhound Race Track.
Unfortunately many of the painted cabinets that I have photographed recently do not feature any information relating to the artist responsible for the work [I have also checked online with little or no success]. There must have been a change in policy by the Dublin Canvas Programme management team because until this year all works has an information label attached.
Harold's Cross Stadium was a greyhound racing stadium in the south Dublin city district of Harold's Cross, owned and operated by the Irish Greyhound Board.
Racing took place every Tuesday and Friday evening. Facilities included a grandstand restaurant, carvery, a number of bars, totalisator betting and ample seating.
Race distances were 325, 525, 550, 570, and 750 yards and the feature competitions at the track were the Corn Cuchulainn, the Puppy Derby and the Grand National.
The stadium closed on 13 of February 2017 due to financial constraints. The sale proceeds will be used to help pay a €20.3 million debt incurred from the construction of Limerick Greyhound Stadium.
