At the official opening of Ireland's first and only all weather horse racing and greyhound track, Minister Dermot Ahern said that Dundalk's day has come. The 'Polytrack' provides Dundalk with the opportunity to compete with other established racetracks around the country and will be able to offer punters racing events for both horse and dog throughout the year.
It was a great day for all who attended with drummers and singers and a leisurely family atmosphere not to mention great horse racing. Its going to be a great success and as Minister Ahern put it - "Dundalk is set to become the leisure capital of Ireland".
