We always host a Farmers and Prizegiving event on the Saturday evening after the ride. But this years will be extra special as we join to celebrate ILDRA's 30th Anniversary (see below).
We would encourage anyone who can stay to please come along and support this part of the event. It is our chance to say thank you to many of the farmers and landowners over whose land you will ride. Stabling and Camping is available, there are many local B&Bs and Hotels as well - why not make a weekend out of it and join us for some great criac and good food after the ride.
It is open to everyone (non-members welcome) - book your tickets for the BBQ, Camping and Stabling with your entry. For non riders a separate booking system will be established.
We are delighted that Murphys Bar and Restaurant are again providing the catering - even more reason for riders to attend and help us say thank you to them all. Murphys are sponsoring the food for the Framers and Stewards - a huge thank you to them for this generous support.

ILDRA was founded in 1990 - 30+ years ago and we had great plans to celebrate this in 2020 but somehow a global pandemic just managed to get in the way. With the return of the St. Patrick's Coast ride this year and our Saturday night party, we have decided to roll it all into one big event.
So if you have ever ridden at ILDRA rides over the last 30 years why not come along and join us to help celebrate - you don’t need to be a member - all welcome.
Do you know someone who used to ride with ILDRA and would like to come back and meet some old friends again - please make sure they know about this event. You will need to book in advance (details to follow) but for now, save the date - Sat. 3rd September.
We plan to have some of the original founding members and riders from the early 90s at the event and hope that many others who have had fun and enjoyment over the years will come along and join us too.
If you are riding this year please try and arrange it so you can attend. Either come back again after the ride or alternatively stable and camp or stay in a local hotel or B&B.
Make a weekend out of it. You won't regret it.
