Tales of the Dogs

Hurry - Only 4 left in stock!
Ireland is the home of the greyhound - with the best breeders, owners and trainers, the story of the sport is an extraordinary one. Ever since the coursing triumphs of Master M'Grath in the nineteenth century and Mick The Miller's days as the first legend of the race track at the start of the twentieth, Irish greyhounds have led the pack. Illustrated with over 120 photographs, many never published before, "Tales of the Dogs" is the most comprehensive chronicle of greyhounds in Ireland, and includes the first ever detailed look at the administration of the sport in Ireland, from the first race at Celtic Park in Belfast to the current time, when the sport is a multi-million euro industry. "Tales of the Dogs" is packed with information, stories and memories, from the earliest days of coursing in Ireland and the most famous winners of all the Classic races, to the current great dogs, the new tracks and everything that makes greyhound racing one of Ireland's best-loved and most popular sports.
