The 2015 Joule Donegal International Rally Ireland is fast approaching. With all figures associated with the rally at full capacity it is set to be one of the largest events in the rally’s 44-year history.
The Donegal Motor Club has announced that it is hosting a pre-rally press conference and Rally Forum at An Grianan Theatre Letterkenny on the 9th June at 7.30 p.m.
This event is open to all members of the press and public and will be a great opportunity to meet the team involved in the running of the event, along with meeting some of the top competitors and personalities that will be tackling the event which starts from An Grianan on the 19th June.
With expected attendance figures set to exceed 75,000, accommodation is at a premium with many hotels and B&Bs reporting being fully booked since early February. The now-added attraction of Irish Tarmac Champion and Donegal native Declan Boyle, who is set to debut his ‘works’ specification 2015 Ford Fiesta World Rally Car at number 1, has seen a late rush for places as many are keen to see this €500,000 pocket rocket in action. The car will be the first of its kind in Ireland and 1 of only 4 in private hands world-wide, so expectations will be high.
