Irish Harness Racing Public Consultation Survey

The Irish Harness Racing Association is undertaking a planning process to develop a five-year strategy. This will provide direction to the organisation and progress the industry to enable it to achieve its potential in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Public meetings were held earlier this year to ascertain the views of stakeholders as to the future priorities for the industry. A further opportunity to influence the direction of the organisation is now being provided via this survey. Your views will help shape the direction of the harness racing industry in Ireland for the next five years. It would be appreciated if you could take five minutes to complete this survey.

Good Luck JR!

The IHRA Board of Directors would like to take this opportunity to wish the very best of luck to John Richardson today and tomorrow in Norway and Sweden respectively at the European Driving Championships.

This is another massive step forward for the industry, where we now have a representative competing for a place in the World Driving Championships which takes place in Sweden next May.

It shows us where the sport has travelled in such a very small length of time. It is a fitting tribute, to John that he has been selected, driving since 1981, with 1356 wins, raced in 7564 races, earning in excess of €1.3 million and a personal best of 1.55.2.

His racing career has seen him take leading driver on a regular basis and has raced in France, UK, Autralia and now Norway and Sweden. John has been joined by his wife Jacqueline and daughters Katie & Hannah and we hope that they cherish this wonderful trip.
