2019 Skerries Road Races brought us back to County Dublin, Republic of Ireland on 6th & 7th July 2019.
A year on from the tragic death of William Dunlop – let’s just take a moment…
Derek Sheils secured a hat-trick of victories at the Skerries 100 road races, with Gary Dunlop, Guy Martin and Michael Sweeney also among the winners.
Dubliner Sheils enjoyed a 0.476-second winning margin over Sweeney in the Open class but came in 6.6 seconds ahead of his compatriot in the Grand Final.
Sheils improved from third on lap one to clinch a first Supersport roads success, with Sweeney again runner-up.
Dunlop won the 125cc, Martin the Senior classic and Sweeney the Supertwins.

Melissa Kennedy was second (and took the fastest lap record) behind Dunlop, with Dungannon’s Nigel Moore completing the podium.
Republic of Ireland riders James Chawke and Michael Browne took third-place finishes in the Open and Grand Final events respectively.
