This weekend sees the staging of the Orchard Motorsport Cork ‘20’ International Rally. It will be passing near Kilcorney on Sunday, as the cars race twice through the Moll Carthy’s stage, taking in Inchamay North, Carragraigue, Knockbrack, Shronebeha and Derry on stages 10 and 13 as they do a loop of three stages, which also includes Glantane and Castlemagner. First drivers on the Moll Carthy’s stage are due to start at 11:50am first round, and 2:25am second time around. Beware of the road closures in the area from 10:30am to 4:45pm which are listed below.
… and make sure to have a look out for local lads:
#46 Liam Denehy/John Lynch (Subaru Impreza)  *did not start the rally*
#53 Daniel Lucey/Derry Healy (Ford Escort)  *Finished first in his class – 5th in the national class [times]*
#62 John O’Sullivan/Denny O’Riordan (Toyota Corolla) [11A] *Finished 1st in class – 14th overall [times]*
2004 was the last time that the ‘Cork 20’ rally was at Moll Carthy’s, though it has been in other roads around Kilcorney since.
