The Irish Coursing Club (ICC) is the organisation charged with the role of Keeper of the Irish Stud Book since 1923. The stud book records pedigrees, ownerships, breeding data and transfers of ownership primarily of all greyhounds. The ICC is subject to the general control and direction of Rásaíocht Con Éireann.

The ICC has informed this Department that there were 24 litters whelped in 2020 (18 on their seventh litter and six on their eighth litter) for which they received a veterinary certificate. Further information relating to these dogs is available from the Irish Coursing Club.
