SPONSORSHIP

We are delighted to announce the new race sponsor for Rás na mBan is Sneem Hotel in Golden’s Cove, Sneem, Co, Kerry.

The combination of county riders and overseas competitors ensures great racing, with the Irish riders raising their game, in a bid to score highly in the top county rider ranking. There are prizes on offer for the top 5 county riders over the line.

We would like to encourage Clubs throughout Ireland to enter riders in teams as they are guaranteed to enjoy the weekend, regardless of their level.

YOUTH ACTIVITIES:
There will also be girls’ underage races, following last year’s success, and new this year we are planning some short fun events in the village green for the younger kids. We want to cater for all riders from the very young to the under 16s.
