1994 Carling Rally of the Lakes

The upcoming Cartell Rally of the Lakes next weekend prompted me to upload these photos from the 1994 Carling Rally of the Lakes. Yep, 25 years ago boys and girls.
It was a fantastic weekend for the sport but the world of motorsport was rocked by the accidents in Imola that weekend that claimed the lives of Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna da Silva.

The sun was out and it helped ensure there would be a good turnout for the run. 
As usual there was a great variety on display.

19/04/19 - Cars And Coffee at E.Fox Engineers

I got a chance to sample a different brew of Cars And Coffee this morning by attending the event held at E Fox Engineers in Baldonnel Business Park on the outskirts of Dublin.
And needless to say, it didn't disappoint with plenty of fantastic vehicles on display and friendly faces to meet.
Check out the De Tomaso Pantera GTS, now that is a muscle car! I have a feeling I will see it again soon.

1994 Circuit Of Ireland Rally

Stephen Finlay and Dessie Wilson took victory in their Michelin Pilot Escort Cosworth, which still has to be one of the best liveries ever for a rally car.

12/04/19 - Videos from Men's Charity Wax Night In Aid Of Happy Feet For Sophia

Here are some videos that I recorded at the Men's Charity Wax Night last week.
Apologies for the poor quality of some, I haven't much time for editing this week.
There is no doubt about it, it was a crazy night and it was great to see funds being raised for such a good cause.

First up we have Gerry Griffin

Then it was Andrew Campbell's turn


Eddie Murray was next on the couch

Rory Durnin was on the receiving end of some brotherly love


Ben O'Brien seemed to escape very lightly

Jamie Rooney didn't escape so easily, with Brian McCoy getting up close and personal with him.

It didn't seem to knock a feather out of Barney Kelly

Stephen Harmon took it all in his stride

Andy Mooney had lots of friends who offered to sponsor him.


Brian McCoy made his first appearance on the table, he too had plenty of friends to sponsor him.

Aaron Keely was next to feel the generosity of his friends.



I think without a doubt Brian Melia was the most popular participant on the night!

Last man for the wax treatment, but by no means least, was Aidan Mooney.

Pat McHugh was the first to get shaved



Brian McCoy was back on the couch to say goodbye to the beard

13/04/19 - Croft HillClimb

It was well worth the spin up to the Croft Hillclimb, which was the first round of the 2019 Miller Oils ANICC Hillclimb Championship.
This RS1800 was absolutely immaculate.







12/04/19 - Mens Charity Wax Night In Aid of Happy Feet For Sophia

There wasn't any standing room in the Fair Green for the men's charity wax night in aid of Happy Feet For Sofia.
Fair play to everyone who helped out by either taking part or sponsoring someone to do it.
I will have a video in a day or 2.

05/04/19 - 'Vintage' football - Ardee Celtic vs Square United over 35s

A few short clips I recorded during the ' vintage ' match which was part of the fundraising efforts organised by the Malone family. A Night of Rock And Roll in Ardee in aid of Ardee Hospice .

Apologies for the jerky movements, I only have the drone a few weeks and haven't had much of a chance to get out with it..



05/04/19 - A Night of Rock And Roll in Aid of Ardee Hospice - The Side Effects

I had great plans to produce a video of the acts that performed but my ambition was greater than my ability. I ran out of time.
So here are the clips stitched together, warts and all.
It was great to see these lads take to the stage and play a cracking set on the night.

You can make the video full screen or view it on youtube by clicking on the links in the bottom right.



05/04/19 - A Night of Rock And Roll in Aid of Ardee Hospice - The Rusholme Ruffians Band

I had great plans to produce a video of the acts that performed but won't get a chance.
So here are the clips stitched together, warts and all.
It was great to see these lads take to the stage and play a cracking set on the night.

I will have another one of The Side Effects later on.

07/04/19 - Dubshed X

I'd never been to Dubshed, which is now it's 10th year, before and didn't know what to expect but needless to say it was well worth the trip.

07/04/19 - Cars And Coffee North East

It was another jam packed event for Cars And Coffee at DKIT in Dundalk. I've given up thinking that it can't get any better because it continues to go from strength to strength. There was some concern during the week that it might suffer with Dubshed and the Swords Show on on the same day but that fear was blown out of the water.

This made my day, it was on an absolute stunning S1000RR . If it has to be explained, there is no point

05/04/19 - A Night of Rock And Roll in Aid of Ardee Hospice

It was fabulous to witness the great turnout for the fundraising event for Ardee Hospice that was organised by the Malone family. You can say what you like about the town but when the chips are down the support is there.
