This is an important week for the Wilton Recycling Donegal International Rally and the Donegal Motor Club. On Thursday, May 30th, the motor club will unveil a tribute garden in Ballymacool Town Park. Later in the evening, club members and many others will gather at Divers Hyundai in Letterkenny for the official launch of the 2024 International Rally.

At Ballymacool Town Park at 6:30 pm, there is an opportunity to witness the unveiling of the new tribute garden, it will be a special place to pay tribute to all members of our sport. This park will be open to the community as a place to take some time for oneself. Brian Brogan, Donegal Motor Club Chairman, looks forward to opening the garden, saying, “In these busy times, it is important to take a step back and find a place to park your worries and concerns, even if just for a short time. We believe this area will benefit the whole community.” Brogan continued. ” This venture by Donegal Motor Club is supported by Donegal County Council and will serve all members of the community.”

At 7:30 pm on Thursday, the official launch of the Wilton Recycling sponsored Donegal Rally will take place at the showroom of Divers Hyundai on Canal Road, Letterkenny. Eamon McGee is the Clerk of the Course once again, and he looks forward to welcoming crews, officials, and supporters as details of this year’s rally will be released. McGee believes he and his team have pulled together a truly international event, attracting crews from across Ireland, the UK, and beyond to our shores. They have attracted a record number of entries for the 2024 rally. This year, they have shaken up the route, with Friday seeing territory not visited in over a decade, and Saturday and Sunday featuring traditional stages but not in the usual configuration.

Everyone is welcome to both events on Thursday. Feel free to come along.
