Bike Park Ireland, based in Ballingarry, Roscrea in County Tipperary, is Ireland’s first official mountain bike park.
It has announced that it will be closed this weekend.
On its Facebook page, Bike Park Ireland writes:
Bike Park Ireland should be celebrating its 5th birthday this week but instead we must announce the following:
Bike Park Ireland must close this weekend 17th, 18th and 19th May.
It comes with an enormous amount of disappointment and frustration that we must close ALL of our trails until sometime next week, effective immediately.
This is due to the “National Insurance Crisis” that is effecting most if not all activity-based businesses this year. Unfortunately we are no exception.
We have been working day and night to find a solution and we will continue to do so until we have it, but as it stands and through no fault of our own we are the latest victims of the ridiculous insurance crisis.
We are sincerely sorry for any inconvenience caused and we just hope that you have patience with us and continue to support us when we reopen, which we hope will be very soon.
Please keep an eye on our webpage and FB for updates. All bookings made for this weekend will be fully refunded, and fingers crossed we are back to normal again next week.
Usually we are asking you to like and share our posts for some fun or a competition, but sadly on this occasion it is because we want all of our valued customers and friends to know so they can avoid a wasted journey.
