National Memorial

As most will be aware, the Gone But Not Forgotten Bikers Memorial committee, in its current guise, has been working together for over 23 years now. Helping keep the memories of our loved ones alive and offering an annual focal point for grieving families to meet others and receive the support of knowing they’re not alone. What you may not know is that our history goes back even further than that. Starting in 1986 with the Brendan McDonnell memorial bike run. That run evolved into the Gone But Not Forgotten Memorial bike run which in turn further evolved in 2003 into the Gone But Not Forgotten Memorial service in Aghadrumsee, Co. Fermanagh and due to numbers attending, now of the Sacred Heart church, Clones, Co. Monaghan

Our annual memorial will continue every May, however, the needs of those grieving and the biking community means we are evolving once again. Our aim is to erect a memorial that will be a significant piece of public art, as befits a National Memorial, to the memory of our friends and loved ones. It will be open 365 days a year, offering grieving people the opportunity to visit at a time of their choosing, to reflect on happier times with the people they loved, to loose themselves in memories of great times spent together or just enjoy a laugh at the antics shared while travelling the roads on two wheels. It will be a professionally designed and constructed sculpture following an open and transparent procurement process. It will be situated, like the annual memorial service, in Clones, Co. Monaghan, a town known for its great welcome for bikers. It will be in a central, peaceful, scenic and easily accessible location.


We will give regular updates via this page, our social media page and our gofundme page, as we progress through the procurement/design stage and finally construction.
