Club Training

There will be club training this Wednesday 9th December at 7:30pm in Anne Harkins Arena, Falcarragh. Our subject this week will be a “Musical Ride” which promises to be great fun , the cost will be €10 pp, please RSVP to Tina to confirm your place .

AIRC club membership renewals are now due for the new year. This year our renewal fee remains @€80 per person , to ensure your membership is processed in time for the start of Spring League on Sunday 31st January please return your fee to secretary Trisha before Monday 14th December .


AIRC headquarters have asked us to remind members that (BS) EN1384 standalone hats are being phased out from the 1st January 2016.

If you are buying a new hat, please make sure that it has the PAS 015 standard mark or ASTM F1163 or Snell 2001 or AS/NZS 3838 and is Kitemarked, as the EN1384 standard alone will not be approved in 2016. All riding helmets must be retagged in 2016.

Yet again Ruth & Rachael have provided the NW sub-region clubs with another successful & extremely memorable night out of fun, fine dining and dodgy dancing.  This year saw a change of venue to Gallaghers Hotel on the main street and also the new addition of the “photo booth” which gave members the opportunity to take home some photographic evidence of the evenings carry on , some of them looking slightly worse for wear after several alcoholic beverages had been consumed!!  The photo booth was very popular & a great success which we will hopefully provide again next year.
