Monaghan Motor Club Stages Rally 2018

The 2018 Four Seasons Hotel Monaghan Stages Rally took place on Sunday, April 22nd and once again huge crowds descended on Monaghan for the weekend. Despite the issues relating to motorsport with regards to costs because of the big insurance premia there was a very big entry and top class drivers to keep the spectators entertained. At times it was wet which may have been uncomfortable for some spectators but the intermittent showers cause major decision making for the drivers and their teams as to which type of tyre to put on before each run. However there was plenty of action and some gained a slight advantage with the right tyre at the right time but overall it did not determine the winner as Sam Moffett seemed to be on target for another Monaghan win when on the final stage of the day Donagh Kelly and co-driver Conor Foley put in a marvellous time with a terrific display of driving and just made it over the line with seconds to spare over Sam. Later the prizes were presented in the Four Seasons Hotel and proprietor, Frank McKenna, thanked the Motor Club for basing the club at the hotel and said that he was delighted to be associated with the sport again after a break of a few years. Club chairman, Conor Maguire, thanked everyone involved in the successful preparation and running of the event and special mention for Brendan Flynn and his assistants Gary Farrelly and Eoghan Corr. Stage commanders and club officials presented the award. Some of the winners were not able to be present but those who were are pictured below the results.
