Muckross man’s Rally of the Lakes victory marked in Agahdoe
Noel O’Sullivan Jr’s victory on last year’s Rally of the Lakes was marked by a special function at the Old Killarney Inn on Saturday night.
The Muckross man guided Derry driver Calum Devine to a last-stage victory in the 2022 event.
The highest-placed Killarney and District Motor Club co-driver is presented with the Timmy O’Sullivan Memorial Cup in memory of one of the club’s top navigators who passed away in a road traffic accident in 2001.
The cup is always presented at the Rally of the Lakes prizegiving ceremony on the Sunday night of the rally.
As is tradition, the cup is returned to the O’Sullivan family at least one month before the annual rally so it can be re-prepared for its new recipient.
Members of the O’Sullivan family from Cullen and Aghadoe were joined by the unrelated O’Sullivan clan from Muckross.
These included the late Timmy’s brother Donie, sisters Sheila and Aileen, and his brothers-in-law Barry Goodman and DD Murphy.
Several members of Killarney and District Motor Club attended too including chairman Tom Randles, retired World Rally Championship co-driver Paul Nagle and former winners of the cup Mikie Galvin and Joe O’Leary.
