Gaelic Chapter Ireland was formed in early 2008, at the same time as Jeff Murphy opened up Dublin Harley Davidson. From the off the main focus of the Chapter was “the Rideout” –while we do organise great social events throughout the year, it’s really all about riding the Harleys.
Officially our riding season starts on St Patricks Weekend (mid March) and runs through to early October when we hold our annual Breast Cancer run. In reality, weather permitting, there is always a group out, meeting up on a Sunday morning, agreeing a pit stop for lunch, and a scenic route to get there. From time to time we’ll take in other attractions – a War Museum, or a quick run to Belfast to the Titanic museum.
As if we don’t ride enough in Ireland we often head further afield , and in recent years members have travelled in groups to Scotland, Wales, the Wakes the Lakes Rally in England, Lake Garda in Italy, Lugano in Switzerland, and we are in the process of planning for the European HOG Rally in June in the South of Spain. I nearly forgot the gang who took on Route 66 last year.
Gaelic Chapter has about 150 members – including 47 overseas members. The Chapter motto is “Bi Saor” – which is the Gaelic for “Be Free”.
Keep the wheels turning & Bi Saor.
