|The Dublin speedway team operated from a number of venues, including Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium, but on 19th August 1950 the team raced at Chapelizod Stadium in Dublin.|
|At their inaugural meeting at the stadium the team were cheered on by a crowd in excess of 12 thousand. They managed an exciting 42-42 draw with Liverpool.|
|They operated as an Open team until 1954 when the ground was used, instead, by the Football team.|
