Horse Racing Ireland came to a decision on Wednesday afternoon to keep racing going behind closed doors to the delight of racing fans with them being one of very few countries still operating within the sport.
Dundalk will be the first meeting to be held on Friday with the night meeting under the lights set to be more popular than ever with no other racing across Britain and Ireland going ahead.
Other meetings that are set to take place in Ireland behind closed doors are as follows:
Fri 20th Mar - Dundalk (Evening)
Sat 21st Mar - Thurles
Sun 22nd Mar - Downpatrick and Naas
Tue 24th Mar - Clonmel
Thu 26th Mar - Cork
