Flying high….Trillick’s Ruairi McCaffrey

Trillick’s Ruairi McCaffrey emerged from the Donegal Harvest Rally a double champion as he scored enough points with his second in class finish to claim the Class 1 spoils in both the Triton National Rally Championship and the Sligo Pallets Border Rally Championship.

The young gun has come a long way already in his short rallying career, improving his pace immensely and even overcoming a huge accident earlier in the year that threatened his championship title hopes.


“ It’s an absolute dream come true for me, a perfect way to end the year,” said Ruairi, after the tough Donegal rally, in which himself and navigator Seamus McTigue struggled with a broken alternator belt on stage 2.

McCaffrey plans to build a new modified Class 11 Honda Civic to compete in the coming years and venture to Ireland’s forests to try his hand at gravel rallying.

Ruairi would like to thank all of his sponsors for their incredible support throughout the year: Mollys Bar & Parlour Restaurant Irvinestown, Mj Prestige Car Sales, Goan Meats Lisnaskea, Deane Public Works, ABC Financial Services, DMS Ireland.
