Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support our injured jockeys.
Funds raised through Irish Injured Jockeys go to the injured riders who are in most need of support.


With the nature of horse racing posing such high risks to our jockeys on a daily basis, it is essential that we have a public fundraising vehicle in place through which we can raise much needed funds on a regular and consistent basis.


There are lots of ways that one can help from buying some Christmas cards or other merchandise from our collection, organising fundraising events, making a donation, volunteering to help out at events or putting a legacy in place.
