Cycling Ireland CEO, Matt McKerrow commented,
“I distinctly remember a Facebook comment that appeared when Cycling Ireland announced my appointment last year – “can you please fix the horrendous online membership system.” So, I am delighted to be able to say we’ve listened, and to be launching a system that integrates membership, club and event functions, and improves the functionality and experience for all in the cycling community. Eventmaster have extensive experience and they have worked with us tirelessly to understand and deliver our requirements in an intuitive and effective platform.”
John Cleary, Managing Director at Eventmaster added,
“Eventmaster are delighted to work alongside Cycling Ireland on this project. Bringing this project to the cycling community has been challenging but very exciting for our team.
We look forward to assisting Cycling Ireland over the coming years as we develop the system even further.”
The system will encompass a broad range of areas including:
- Members Renewals
- New membership applications
- Club affiliations
- New Club creation
- Current Club data management
- Members history
- Member status
- License management
- Membership transfer management
- Member Transfer
Permit Application Management
- Fully integrated flow of event permit application and approval
- All Cycling Ireland sanctioned events will be accessible on the events page
- All event participants will be screened at event registration for a valid CI membership or will be levied with a one-day licence fee if a valid license is not in place.

We look forward to bringing you further enhancements to the Cycling Ireland website and events calendar over the coming months.
