Introducing our new IRGT Parade Jackets, presenting a uniform look on parade and promoting the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust (IRGT).
With the return to pre-COVID racing operations Greyhound Racing Ireland has in collaboration with the IGOBF designed a new standardised racing parade jacket for all handlers. The wearing of the previous style of racing coat was suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The new version will carry the logo of the Irish Retired Greyhound Trust who will benefit from a donation of €5.00 for every jacket sold.
