Irish Injured Jockeys
Irish Injured Jockeys was set up in 2014 to increase awareness and raise vital funds to support injured jockeys. Funds raised through Irish Injured Jockeys go to the injured riders who are in most need of support.
Irish Horse Welfare Trust
Irish Horse Welfare Trust was established in 1999 to help the plight of horses in Ireland. As Ireland’s largest dedicated equine charity, it provides a dedicated centre, equipped for 65 horses and ponies, including re-training retired racehorses, at their equine centre in Woodenbridge, Co Wicklow.
Drogheda Memorial Fund
Drogheda Memorial Fund was established in 1893 to provide temporary and permanent financial assistance to trainers and riders who find themselves in needy circumstances whether from age, sickness, accident or misfortune. It also provides funds for the widows and children of such people. Income for the fund is derived from a portion of the annual licence fees of jockeys, qualified riders (amateur jockeys) and trainers, from investment income and from voluntary donations.
