The Irish town of Dundalk first held greyhound racing in 1930. However, once the old track closed the town was without a greyhound track for some time. The latest track to open in the town, and one of the most modern in Ireland, is situated at Ramparts Stadium.

Track Records, as of September 2014, are shown below together with an indication of how fast the time is in comparison to other tracks, both for currently open and defunct tracks, in the UK. Ratings are between 0 and 100, where 100 is an extremely fast time and reflects the speed of the track, tightness of the circuit and quality of greyhound visiting the tracks.
