Hi , i wanted to send you all at Monaghan motorclub a few words of thanks
for accepting my entry for your rally at the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed
my day on sunday getting a run over the 9 stages which were magic and that
goes for the setup of them too. I found all officials very helpfull and
pleasant which lets the competitors enjoy their day as it should be (
sport ) . Thanks again Rodney White competitors rep stage rallies NI.

I just wanted to say what a fantastic event you run, from the stages to the
marshals ( and the Gardai ) everything was faultless, there is obviously
alot of hours gone in the planning and execution, so a very well done to
everyone concerned in the running of the event and im sure a small band of
unsung hero’s are key to its success. we had a great time while it lasted
and would have loved to have gone further but that wasnt to be, Best event
we have done in many a year !!!!! yours Don Whyatt car 26

Many months of preparation have gone into this event, which is estimated to be worth in the region of 5 million euro to the local economy with large crowds expected throughout Monaghan town and the mid-Monaghan region over the course of the weekend.

With the event based around the mid-Monaghan area’s of Ballinode, Smithboro, Killeevan, Greenans Cross, Threemilehouse, Corcaghan and Aghabog no stone has been left unturned by CoC Conor Maguire and his team with an enjoyable and highly entertaining day guaranteed for the large crowds of spectators expected to descend on Monaghan over the weekend.
