The Faugheen 50, Munster 100 have unfortunately become the latest road races to drop off the 2021 Irish road racing calendar.
With the addition of the aforementioned meets alongside Kells, Tandragee and the Killalane based East Coast Racing Festival, the Irish roads schedule for 2021 is now likely down to just three events.

It’s widely thought that the Walderstown Road Races scheduled for July, will also be forced into cancellation due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The horizon for the Skerries 100, appears a touch brighter but the event taking place is subject to various factors improving.
Organisers of another ever popular event, the Armoy Road Races seem fairly optimistic regarding the running of the ‘Race of Legends’ whilst the ever well organised Cookstown 100 organisers are still confident of getting the season underway on the 23rd of April.
Should they be forced to postpone the two day meeting, they’ve already pencilled in a proposed alternative date of 10th-11th September.
Fingers crossed for better times ahead for the Irish roads scene, which has gone through so much hardship over recent times.
