The Skerries 100, July

Skerries 100

The Skerries 100 

The Skerries 100 is, without doubt, one of Ireland's most famous motorcycle road races, attracting crowds of 65,000 people each July.


Skerries has been associated with road racing since 1930, when the Leinster 100, which became a '200' in 1931, was run on a 13 mile circuit which linked the villages of Skerries, Lusk and Rush.

Kells Road Races


The first race took place on July 6th 1946 around a 7.1-mile course with the start/finish on Skerries Main Street!


Harry Turner from Belfast won the inaugural Skerries 100 and since then all of Irelands top road racers have raced at Skerries. The present 2.93-mile circuit may seem small in comparison to the 7.1-mile Skerries track, but it is no less demanding, with a record lap speed of 105.95mph set last year by a certain Mr WJ Dunlop MBE, OBE.
