Overseas entries for Kerry Winter Rally – Kerry Motor Club event is part of An Turas Mór

Within 24 hours of entries opening for Kerry Motor Club’s Winter Rally the club had already received an overseas entry.

The October 30 event has been included in the ‘An Turas Mór – Homecoming Kerry’ festival.

An Turas Mór is presented by Kerry County Council as part of the Global Irish Festival Series which is a joint initiative between Fáilte Ireland and the Department of Foreign Affairs.

The month-long gathering is a county wide initiative to bring home Kerry Diaspora during October this year.

The tie between Kerry Motor Club and the festival is encouraging Irish immigrants based in Britain and further afield the chance to come home and experience Kerry motorsport.

London-based Galway man Sean Walsh was one of the first to place an entry for the rally.

The London Irish Motor Club member is second in his class in the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship, and he will drive a Ford Fiesta on the event.

“I am looking forward to getting out on the Kerry stages and to see what way the standings will finish up for the West coast championship in class 2 as there are only a few points between first, second and third so it is all to play for on the Kerry Winter Rally,” he said.

An overseas participants’ reception will take place at the Banna Beach Hotel on Friday, October 28.

“An Turas Mór is a call home from all aspects of Kerry business, tourism, sports and cultural organisations spearheaded by Kerry County Council to come home and enjoy close to forty events and activities that will take place throughout the County during the month of October this year,” said a council statement.

The rally is expected to have a capacity entry.

 “Get your entries in early and come and enjoy the stages of North Kerry and while you’re here, sample the hospitality and the best rally party the country has to offer.,” said Seán Hegarty, Clerk of the Course.
