The Milkman Delivers!!
2024 Donegal International Modified Winner



Callum Devine and Noel O'Sullivan have secured their second Donegal International Rally victory on the Skoda Fabia Rally2's Irish Tarmac debut.

It has been a thrilling three days of rallying with Keith Cronin and Matt Edwards coming to blows with the Donegal terrain while in the lead on Friday and Sunday.

Two rounds to go and this year's Irish Tarmac title looks set to go down to the wire 😎

Top Five
1 Devine 2:18:18.9s
2 Evans +17.4s
3 Kelly +26.4
4 Edwards +36.8
5 Moffett +48.8



1️⃣ to go

A spin for Callum Devine and a fastest time for David Kelly means the top three gaps have tightened ahead of Donegal's Fanad Head finale.

It has been edge of your seat stuff today 🔥🔥🔥

After SS18/20
1 Devine 2:07:52.6s
2 Evans +20.3s
3 Kelly +29.7
4 Moffett +43.0
5 Edwards +47.8



New Historic Leader 🔝

Tommy O'Connell leads the Donegal Historic Rally after overnight leaders Michael McDaid and Declan Casey hit a chicane on Gartan.

After SS17/20
1 McDaid
2 Evans +49.1s
3 O'Donnell +1:44.9
4 Davies +1:47.6
5 Breen +2:08.3



Final day drama continues 🫣
Stage 17 - Fanad Head

We have a new modified leader as rally-long contender Kevin Gallagher stops on Fanad Head. Declan Gallagher now has the win within his grasp.

Somehow Matt Edwards has managed to complete the test to stay in third after damaging his front wheel on Atlantic Drive.

David Kelly slid his Polo off the road but still managed to set Fanad's second-fastest time 🤯

After SS17/20
1 Devine 2:00:31.7s
2 Evans +37.5s
3 Edwards +52.5
4 Kelly +59.4
5 Moffett +1:02.1



Edwards loses lead 💥

For the second time this weekend Donegal's rally leader has lost top spot with suspension damage.

Unlike Keith Cronin on Friday, Matt Edwards has managed to crawl through Atlantic Drive but we'll have to wait to see if it can be fixed for Fanad Head.

It's a big shame for the Circuit of Ireland winner but now Donegal is in the hands of last year's winner Callum Devine.



Stage 15 - Gartan

Plenty of news on Sunday's opener!

Callum Devine goes fastest to take three seconds out of Matt Edwards' lead after the rally leader's Fiesta was down on power in the first kilometre of the stage.

Unfortunately we have lost Cathan McCourt from the podium battle and David Kelly drops behind Josh Moffett after slowing to check on McCourt.

A stunning time from Kevin Gallagher has extended his modified lead by 10.7 seconds.

After SS15/20
1 Edwards 1:43:48.0s
2 Devine +13.1s
3 Evans +53.2
4 Moffett +1:11.2
