€20m greyhound stadium could impact otters

A €20m greyhound stadium proposed by the Irish Greyhound board to be built just outside Limerick is raising concerns over the impact it could have on otters.

An Taisce has raised the concerns over the impact the development which would employ 100 people could have on otters in the River Shannon near by. Apparently Otters are protected under the EU Habitats Directive.

The five-storey stadium and a three-storey office building for Meelick would have “betting facilities, two restaurants and four bars with a dance floor”.

With Up to 300 jobs going at Castlemahon in West Limerick and the never ending Dell crisis one might be forgiven if they siad, ”F*ck the otters, it’s 100 jobs”
