You may have seen our article about the 8 ways to get served alcohol on Good Friday. Well, a 9th has just emerged. Well, maybe 8 1/2.
Greyhound racing tracks have an exemption to the law prohibiting the sale and consumption of alcohol on licensed premises on Good Friday. Usually, Harolds Cross dog track is the only one opening and serving on the day. This year there’s a bit of a welcome change.
Not only will Harolds Cross track be open, but Shelbourne Park in Ringsend will be too, and not just for the races. As Ireland are playing Switzerland in a friendly the same evening, Shelbourne Park will be showing the racing and the football match.
Tony Cascarino will be there to do a meet and greet with fans and will be discussing his career and the match. The good thing about all of this is that doors open at 3.30, the racing starts at 5.00, and then the match is on at 7.45. If you’re over visiting Dublin on a stag and are stuck for something to do, then this might be a good option.
The bar will of course be open all day for those who come.
Tickets for the event are €10 and can be purchased at the door or booked online.
