Monaghan Crews Star in Barbados

Posted: June 7, 2016 in Uncategorized


Monaghan Motor Club members made their presence known as five members competed on last weekend’s SOL Barbados Rally. The event which is marketed to invite crews from Ireland and the UK to compete is held over the space of a week. The King of the Hill challenge takes places the first weekend followed by the rally itself which is run over the second weekend. Jim McKenna/Arthur Kierans, Damien Hagan/Paul Kelly and New York based, Barry McKenna, all represented Monaghan on this year’s event.

McKenna/Kierans stormed through the stages to take an impressive 12th overall in their 2.5 Litre Escort. They also were the highest non-local, two-wheel drive finisher. Damien Hagan/Paul Kelly finished 19th overall. Barry McKenna, who had Donegal’s Leon Jordan navigating, were disappointed to retire on Saturday. They were able to repair their car and come back for the Sunday Cup where they claimed a fine 3rd overall.
