Media accreditation for Laytown Races 2022 must be submitted by close of business on Friday September 2, 2022. No applications can be accepted after this date. 

Application does not guarantee accreditation. You will receive notification by email if the application is approved or declined.  

Laytown Races reserves the right to withhold accreditation and each application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 

Due to capacity and health and safety, priority will be given to full-time journalists, broadcasters and photographers who work for recognised newspapers, magazines, TV, and radio stations.  

No applications will be processed from freelance journalists or photographers. Any freelance journalists or photographers wishing to apply will have to get their editors to fill out the application on their behalf. Freelance applications must be accompanied by a company headed letter from the commissioning editor / producer or picture desk editor of the publication, programme (TV or radio), the applicant is representing.  

All accredited photographers are requested to display a Laytown Races photographer bib once inside the racecourse. This applies to all accredited photographers and overrides the AIR (Association of Irish Racecourses) photo armband policy. 

Track access is limited and will be issued at the discretion of Laytown Races.   

All photographers who are approved for accreditation must provide evidence of public liability insurance for an industry standard minimum of €6.5 million. This must be emailed to
