The first ladies race night at Newbridge Park Greyhound Stadium will take place on Saturday April 27 next.
Irish Greyhound Board Head of Marketing Orla Strumble said: “Our female followers are extremely important to us, and for that reason we felt that a weekend of racing should be dedicated to them.
“69% of our restaurant bookers across Ireland are female and we value them as the lifeline for our restaurants.
“A night at the dogs is a great occasion to get your girl friends together and have some fun. All stadia are ready to provide a fun filled night of exhilarating racing and entertainment and we would urge ladies to get booking their tickets to secure their place.”
Special ladies admission on these nights is just €5 and includes a complementary welcome drink upon arrival along with a free race programme and a fast paced night of entertaining racing.
Ladies will also get the chance to enter a competition to win one of 30 weekend hotel breaks courtesy of Great National Hotels.
Entry forms are located in race programmes.
