Rally Ireland to Kick Off FIA World Rally Championship 2009

The Northwest of Ireland will be alive with the roar of engines from the 29th January to the 1st February, when Rally Ireland takes place in Belfast, Fermanagh, Tyrone, Sligo, Leitrim, Donegal, Cavan and Roscommon. This event marks the beginning of the championship, an honour traditionally given to the Monte Carlo Rally. Seeing as this is only the 2nd time that Ireland has hosted a round of the FIA World Rally Championship, this is a huge achievement, and one that can only benefit the local economy - the last Rally Ireland attracted over 250,000 spectators and generated €48 million in revenue. Further information is available here and here. And oh yeah, if you attend, keep an eye out for one of the 1000+ signs we produced for the event...
