Bord na gCon is a commercial State body, established under the Greyhound Industry Act, 1958, chiefly to control greyhound racing and to improve and develop the greyhound industry.
Bord na gCon is a body corporate and a separate legal entity to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
Bord na gCon has advised that the statistical report referred to by the Deputy was submitted to her in November 2017 and therefore statistics for November and December would not have been available at that time. Bord na gCon will furnish the information requested directly to the Deputy.
Bord na gCon has informed me that retrospective records are not available at the privately owned Lifford and Enniscorthy stadia. However race injury information will be available going forward at these stadia.
