Now in it's tenth year, the Paddy Dakar is an annual orienteering charity event on motorbikes.
This event starts in Doon, Co. Limerick and travels in and around Slieve Felim, Silvermines and the Galtee Mountains, which straddle counties Limerick and Tipperary.
It is held as a tribute to Dakar Riders, past and present, who by their participation have demonstrated themselves to be the pinnacle of Off-Road endurance riding.
The Paddy Dakar is a weekend event and 2019 will be the tenth time the event will be run. The course is aimed at people who ride adventure bikes and who may not have been in any kind of competition in the past, or have any off-road experience.
