We are delighted to announce that we have rescheduled this year’s soapbox race to Sunday August 27th. Online entries now being accepted. Further details to follow!



Following detailed studies of the weather forecast from a number of different sources in the past 24 hours, the decision has been taken by the organising team to cancel this Sunday’s (4th June) planned Bundoran Lifeboat Soapbox Race. Weather conditions are expected to be wet and windy, and for the comfort and more importantly, safety, of our spectators, participants and crew, we have decided that this is the best course of action. We are hugely disappointed at having to make this decision as this is a day that all of the crew look forward to every year. Our street collection will go ahead as normal on Sunday and we hope that we can count on your ongoing generosity and support as we continue to fundraise to help save lives at sea.

We would ask you to share this message to ensure that word gets out to those who were planning to spectate or participate.

Thank you.

The Bundoran RNLI Lifeboat Crew.
