Cáirde Rás Tailteann announces the support of Festina watches who continue their support in 2023 to present the winner of the country rider daily award with a Festina watch for their efforts.


Race Director Gerard Campbell observed “Cáirde Rás Tailteann are grateful that a well-known brand such as Festina has continued to acknowledge one of the most important elements of the race and in doing so acknowledge the efforts of our domestic county riders each day”.


David Buckley from Festina Ireland acknowledged being “delighted to be associated with the Rás Tailteann again and its long history as Ireland’s renowned International stage race. Festina is delighted to be associated with the daily leading county rider for Rás Tailteann 2023”.


Headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, with a consolidated presence in more than 90 countries on five continents, multi-brand know how and 5 million watches sold per year, have all resulted in Festina being an international benchmark in the watchmaking market today. In addition to being leader in many strategic markets thanks to the quality of our products, exceptional value for money and the special attention they devote to after-sales service for their products.
