MEDIA ACCREDITATION REQUEST

Please click on the media accreditation tab above and complete the form in full in order to request media accreditation by no later than Wednesday 14th August 2009.

You will be advised of your acceptance at the earliest opportunity.

Every attempt will be made to accommodate each and every request for bona fide media accreditation. We will consider the following criteria for acceptance, particularly if we reach our maximum limit for journalists / photographers.

  1. Written confirmation of commission from a newspaper, magazine, photo agency, news agency or online media
  2. Membership of a journalists association such as AIJC, AIPS, SJA
  3. Public liability insurance (own or through commissioning media)
  4. Proof of previous published work, if requested

TV requests are subject to separate scrutiny and may be conditional.

There will be a number of cars and minibuses available on the race for journalists/photographers, subject to availability. However, you will need to make your own transport arrangements to the start in Enniskerry and from the race finish in Cork. There is a direct rail link to Dublin and Cork International airport is a short taxi ride away from the finish in Cork.
