All Clare-owned greyhounds who entered the richest puppy stake in the world are still standing as the second round of the competition gets underway this weekend.

Coolavanny Lilly, Rockalong Rocket, Flyers Iniesta and Bling Bling Paul will all leave the traps at the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial Stake in Limerick Greyhound Stadium on Saturday night.

Lilly, owned by Noel Hehir in Ennis, posted the fastest time of the Clare contingent in round 1 in 28.60 seconds.


Greyhound racing pundit Joe Sheahan says it’s been a successful work for the sport’s enthusiasts in the Banner.
