There was a huge attendance in Enniscorthy last night at a meeting to discuss the proposed closure of Enniscorthy Greyhound Track
The matter is set to become a general election issue in County Wexford.
It’s believed over 650 people involved in the dog racing industry and beyond attended last night to voice their concerns over the closure.
A number of general election candidates were also present at the gathering.
The government has reaffirmed their commitment to the greyhound industry which receives €16 million in funding every year.
The Irish Greyhound Board have come under pressure to act as Enniscorthy remains a profit making track with many employees involved in the day to day running.
