      Sad News on Closure

      Ireland Jan 7, 2017 at 12:49 PM

      I would like to say a big thank you to the management and staff @ VT for running a clean ship and being one of the better Irish forums over many years.
      Anyone not wishing to ask on the more Klanish parent Forum of TA might want to look at Fodor's or Ireland Yes.
      Anyone wanting to contact me can do so on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/t2pIreland/

      Skerries 100 races

      by Musquy Online Now Apr 18, 2006 at 4:06 PM

      Thanks to those who've posted here & elsewhere, I now know how & when to get to Skerries, have a map of the town, an idea of where the racing takes place, and a map. of sorts, of the course.
      I've also found websites for the local tourist office and for the club that runs the racing.
      What I still need to know is what time the racing takes place (even approx., i.e. is it all day, all afternoon, evening only?), a map showing the route from town to the races (I've sort of worked it out, but I'd like to know from which side I approach the racing), and are all parts of the course generally accessible, i.e. can I walk round to various vantage points, go & have a nosey around the paddock, etc.?
      Any info & advice welcome. IoM TT veteran, but new to the Irish races.

      Road Races

      (Also posted in Co. Dublin forum, as I wasn't sure Skerries would be listed separately - & didn't look; first indication of need for advice!)
      I fancy going to the Skerries motorcycle races in 2006. I'm a veteran of the IOM TT and have heard good things about the Skerries.
      I'll be using public transport, rather than a bike. I understand it's possible to do this by Ferry from Holyhead, then train from Dun Laoghaire, and to fit this into a (long) day. I'd prefer to make a weekend of it. Any advice re accommodation and transport links? Does everything get booked up early? Is camping an option, and if so where?

      Any advice would be welcome. Thanks
