Faugheen 50 2010 Cancelled Written by Administrator It is with great regret that the Faugheen 50 Supporters Club announces that they will not be running a motorcycle road race in the village of Faugheen, Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary this year, 2010. Unfortunately, due to the current economic climate the Club does not have the funds in advance of the road race weekend to meet expected bills.
The Club remains committed to running our road race in 2011 and will pursue with tremendous vigour a number of major fund raising events during 2010 in order to have sufficient funds in the bank, to pay bills, prior to running our road race in 2011. The cost of running the road race is in excess of €80,000.00, (these funds, in the main, are obtained during road race weekend from entrance to race days, racer entry fees, sales of programmes etc.), despite being provided with a substantial amount of ‘free’ or at ‘cost’ items and the goodwill of many local companies and individuals.
The Club’s Committee would like to thank the residents and landowners in and around the village of Faugheen for their continued support and hope that this support will continue into 2011, additionally we would like to thank our sponsors, local companies, South Tipperary County Council, Denis Landy Counsellor, Carrick-on-Suir Garda Station, the local Ambulance Services and Volunteers for their support and we look forward to working with you all in 2011.
