The sleepy roads of West Cork will come alive to the roar of engines as the annual West Cork Motor Rally gets into gear (ouch!) on St Patrick’s Weekend.

There are 8 stages each day over a total of some 160 miles of narrow, twisting and undulating roads, a challenge for the drivers and great spectacle for those watching. The activity is centered on Clonakilty and there is always a lively and very friendly social side to this rally.

Much of the night time action will be in the Quality Hotel, who are once again sponsors of the event.

The Bones O’Connor Modified Challenge, named for a local man who has been a driving force (ouch again!) behind the rally since its inception,  was a great success in previous years and should be back this year. Crews in cars from classes 9-15 will be competing vigorously to take the crown.

Date and details for 2019 subject to confirmation.
