PAC focuses on purchase of lands for Limerick Greyhound Stadium

The Public Accounts Committee is today focusing on mismanagement of public money in relation to the purchase of lands for Limerick Greyhound Stadium.

A meeting this morning will also look at the knock-on effect of cost overruns on the financial position of Bord na gCon, the commerical state body responsible for the promotion and regulation of the greyhound industry in Ireland.

A report by the Comptroller and Auditor General has raised a number of concerns in relation to the Limerick Greyhound Stadium project, which is costing €21m.

In particular, TDs will ask about land deals connected to the stadium.
