Declan Moore from AXA Insurance
“AXA are delighted to be the official co-sponsor for this year’s AXA Bikecare Skerries 100 and continue to support this local event. We have been underwriting motorbike insurance for over 10 years. Firstly I would like to take the opportunity to thank the Loughshinny Motorcycle Club as without them we would not be enjoying the fantastic event over these three amazing days. Secondly our thanks go out to all of you, the motorcycle enthusiasts for attending every year come rain, hail or shine! Throughout the weekend AXA Bikecare staff will be on hand to provide quotations for Motorcycle Insurance and answer any queries you may have in relation to your policy or other AXA Insurance products. So please do drop by the AXA Bikecare marquee or visit our mobile branch in the paddock for a chat with our staff members.”
Michael Hoey, Country Crest
“Country Crest is delighted to be the official co-sponsor for this year’s Skerries 100. It’s a real honour to be in a position to support this incredible local sports event, which is now running for over 70 years, and has become engrained in our calendar. Thanks to the fantastic work done by the Loughshinny Motorcycle Club, the event attracts riders from all over the globe, and thousands of motorcycle fans every year. We hope that you the spectators enjoy this thrilling weekend of racing, and most importantly, we want to wish all the road racing stars, a safe and enjoyable event.”
Paul Healy, Chairman of LSMSC
"Loughshinny look forward to welcoming race fans to our Skerries 100 event in July, I would like to thank the committee and wish them all the best for this year's event. Every year presents new challenges.
I must also thank our immensely loyal sponsors, every year so many of them dig deep and provide their support. Like the riders and Spectators without our sponsors there would be no racing.
As ever we are always open to new members, fresh faces and new ideas for any and all events through the year. If you feel there is any contribution you would be interested to make, or event you would like to get involved with please do not hesitate to contact us. “
This year’s event will take place on Friday and Saturday, 30th June and 1st July over the demanding 2.9 mile seaside course, and with all the recent debate surrounding the insurance crisis, we are proud to have great sponsors supporting the famous “Skerries 100”
The support that we have received from the following sponsors, who are involved with individual class races, has also been a source of pride. Des Darcy Motors in Swords are back on board, as are C & T Supermarket, Convent Lane Motors, HMS, B & V Nurseries, ASM, The Donnellan Family, Ollies Place, Mc Nally & Co Accounting, Kennedy Motorcycles, Sam Dennigan Transport, The Seaver Family, Friends of Eddie Reddy, and Smithtown Diner.
As we are all well aware that the cost of running Irish Championship road racing, is escalating, and we are keeping the cost of the two days practice and racing at just €20, and that will include a race programme. We are hoping that all road race fans will dig deep to help the future of racing, and buy their admission arm band, that will help the club with the cost of the event.
Proceedings will start with the Annual Classic Parade that will take place on Thursday 29th June, with sign on starting in Skerries Mills at 5:30pm, and the run itself at 7.30pm. The entry fee of €10 for the parade will all go to the clubs chosen charity.
