Kerry 50 – full list of Kerry drivers and co-drivers in the Rose Hotel Circuit of Kerry

There are nearly 50 cars on the entry list representing the hosts Kerry Motor Club and neighbouring Killarney and District Motor Club.

Leading drivers from Kerry include Mike Quinn (Ford Escort) Tom Relihan (Escort Mk2) and defending Moriarty’s Central Car Sales Kingdom of Kerry champion Darren Young.

Mark Murphy will drive a Toyota Starlet while both Sean Enright and Conor Walsh are Escort mounted. Eddie Kennelly will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first Circuit of Kerry start.

Top Killarney drivers include Denis Hickey, Tadhg O’Sullivan, Charlie Hickey, Dave Slattery, and Thomas Randles in a fleet of Ford Escorts. Kevin O’Donohoe will drive a BMW M3 in the event.


The rally is also a round of the Top Part West Coast Rally Championship. The championship is 30 years old this year and Tralee-based motor factor group Top Part has been the title sponsor since day one.

Kenmare’s Vincent O’Shea had the honour of being the first-ever West Coast champion in 1993 and he is back this year in a Darrian T90.

He was co-driven by Brian Hickey 30 years ago and he is also on the entry list but as a driver this time out.

Jason Costello was another to register for the first Top Part Championship – as a co-driver to Ray Hilliard. He has entered in a Ford Escort as a driver this time around.
