Efforts are underway to keep Longford greyhound track open.
Earlier this month, the track announced that it was to close at the end of August.
A large crowd attended a meeting at the track last night to look at efforts to keep the track open. It was agreed to set up a fund to keep it open and supporters will be asked to contribute 200 euro. The track stresses that there are expenses that have to be paid almost immediately to keep racing going.
It also says details will be announced later for how people can help.
