If last Sunday’s hurling action is anything to go by we are in for one hell of a summer. After watching some tame games during the league I must admit I was worried that we would live in the shadow of football again this year.

Last weekend's Donegal Harvest Rally was the final round of the 2010 HASS Border Rally Championship and resulted in success for a number of Mayo competitors. Completing a fine season with second in class on the rally, Ambrose Gaughan and Derek Molloy were the overall winners of class nine on the Border Series. Competing in a Toyota Corolla, the Foxford/Lahardane duo have been a revelation this season in this very competitive category, regularly beating competitors in much more powerful cars.
Ambrose Gaughan, Derek Molloy, David Carney, and Ray Fitzpatrick upheld local honour on Sunday’s Sligo Stages Rally, with both crews recording top finishes in their respective classes.
Patrick Elliott has made rather a habit of winning in recent times. Last year he clinched the Dunlop National Rally Championship with six wins. He started 2009 in a similar vein, winning the opening round in Birr two weeks ago. And on Sunday he added the latest success to his portfolio of wins with victory on the 2009 TF Royal Hotel and Theatre Mayo Stages Rally.
Ambrose Gaughan from Foxford and his Lahardane co-driver Derek Molloy claimed one of the best results of their rally careers to date, with second in class nine on Sunday’s Cavan Stages Rally. Competing in a Toyota Corolla the pair had a trouble-free run to finish 53rd overall from a starting position of 146th, recording a great result against some very strong opposition.
