Publicising the next of our sponsors for the 2023 edition of An Rás Tailteann.

Cáirde Rás Tailteann is delighted to announce the return of FBD Insurance, as the sponsor of the coveted daily stage winner's jersey, each day during the 2023 race. FBD has a long and storied history with An Rás Tailteann. Having been the flagship sponsor of the event for many years up until 2010 when Alexander Wetterhall racing in the colours of Team Sprocket Pro took the overall honours on the last stage into Skerries. In the same year, German rider John Degenkolb took the points classification and two stage wins. Degenkolb went on to become one of the biggest names in world cycling, winning stages in le Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia and la Vuelta a Espana.

Ger Campbell 2023 Race Director on announcing this development indicated “Cáirde Rás Tailteann is thrilled that FBD have decided to again support this iconic Irish event”. He added “FBD Insurance have played a significant role in the history of this race. FBD’s historical contribution and support in the development of the sporting institution that is An Rás Tailteann, was instrumental in lifting the event into a fully-fledged, world ranked UCI grade 2.2 event, befitting its status”.

FBD Insurance has been protecting Irish consumers, farmers and businesses for over 50 years. With a network of 34 local sales offices, FBD are proud to be the largest Irish owned insurer and offer a wide range of protection products to suit customer needs including car, home, van, business and farm insurance.

John Cahalan, Chief Commercial Officer for FBD Insurance commented “FBD Insurance is delighted to once again sponsor the stage winners jersey at The Ras Tailteann. Through our 34 branches across the country, local and community is at the heart of what we do and The Ras, as Ireland’s most historic and iconic cycling event, demonstrates this ethos in a really vibrant way. The 2023 race promises to be another fantastic experience and we look forward to seeing all the colour and excitement on display across the 5 stages”.


The 68th edition of the race will take place between May 17th-21st and will travel clockwise around Ireland with stage finishes in Birr, Ennis, Castlebar and Monaghan before starting the final stage to a finishing circuit in the seaside town of Blackrock, Co. Louth. Riders will cover 768km with 14 categorised climbs which will act as a platform for attacking riders to battle it out for the coveted Rás yellow jersey.
