The Rás Tailteann Ireland’s premier international cycle race first came to Skerries in 2006 and has finished in Skerries every year since with the exception of 2019
An Post backed the Rás for many seasons, but it ended its sponsorship in 2017. The event was then run in May 2018 using a reserve fund built up over many years, but with that fund now empty and with the organizers having exhausted all opportunities in relation to sponsorship for a UCI race this year they were left with no alternative to pull the race for 2019
With the 2019 international event put on hold Rás organisers have continued to explore every opportunity to secure sponsorship and are doing what they can to bring back this international event next year, with the hopes of coming back stronger in 2020.
