Greyhound racing at St Conleth's Park started on 30 April 1948. After only one year the GAA governing body banned racing around all of their pitches which meant the greyhound racing was suspended. However it restarted on 21 June 1950 with racing taking place over race distances of 310, 350, 525 and 550 yards and 350 yards hurdles. The racing lasted a further eighteen years up until 1968, when it was decided that the greyhound operation would be better suited outside of the town at venue where racing could take place on a purpose built stadium. That stadium was Newbridge Greyhound Stadium which opened in 1972.
