Club Statement

"Its with deep disappointment that we have had to make the decision to postpone our Stages Rally 2020 which had been planned for Sunday July 12th.

This has been in response to current guidelines of the Government and the Hse leading to Motorsport Ireland’s extension of the suspension of all permitted events until July 20th. Stage Rallies will not be considered until after August 10th as they fall under Phase 5 of the Government Roadmap for Reopening.

As we are very aware of the importance of the relationship we have with the residents on route who work with us in planning for our annual event and we feel it would be totally inappropriate at this time to place any risk to the health of the general public or our volunteers.

Clerk of the Course for 2020 , Ultan Mc Gowan, who with his team has been working diligently over the past six month in preparation for the July event , said ‘he is disappointed for his team, but more importantly at this time is the health and wellbeing of our communities’.

We want to thank the businesses who had committed to support us again this year, many going through a difficult period at this time, and hope that we can build on that relationship in the future.

Our thoughts at this time are with the frontline staff, those effected by the virus and those families who have lost loved ones during the pandemic."
