• Betting Division

    Managed by Pat Brennan, the Betting Division licences and regulates all on-course bookmakers.

    An Authorised Officer attends every race meeting in the Republic of Ireland, with powers similar to a customs and excise officer. We enforce all rules and regulations governing bookmakers and their employees on racecourses.

      The responsibilities of the Betting Division include:

      • Issuing Course Betting Permits
      • Collection of Turnover Charges and Pitch Fees
      • Allocation of bookmakers pitches on racecourses
      • Resolving betting disputes
      • Registering and maintaining records of sales of bookmakers’ racecourse seniorities
