IGB Board offer thanks to interim CEO Dr Sean Brady

The Irish Greyhound Board wishes to thank Dr Sean Brady for his term as interim CEO during an exceptionally challenging period for the industry. Chairman Phil Meaney commented “Dr Sean Brady showed consistent and steady leadership during the most challenging period of change for our industry. I want to thank him personally and on behalf of the Board for his tireless efforts and optimism and we wish him every success for the future.”

Dr Sean Brady commented “I want to express my deep gratitude to our hard working and talented staff in Limerick and at every track throughout the country. Their dedication is what drives our business and brings 640,000 patrons through our gates every year. From the track teams, EHS, Tote, Head Office and local supporters, the industry has excellent people working in it. Their efforts receive little recognition but are essential to our success.”

Dr Sean Brady acknowledged that unpopular decisions were taken during his short term but added “Some people may never agree with the decisions I have taken but they know where I stand, I am straight with everyone.”

Looking to the future, Dr Sean Brady repeated his call for all stakeholders to work together for their shared future and added “The industry faces significant challenges which can only be addressed through cooperation amongst stakeholders and unity of effort across the sector. We need all shoulders to the wheel to renew the greyhound industry. I wish my successor Gerard Dollard every success in his new position.”
