A message from Paul Browne, our COC of the 2019 Cork 20 International Rally
Now that the madness has receded and we are getting back to some sense of normality and the 'Cork 20' is now a memory, I would like to express my gratitude to all the people who took the time to help us out over the weekend, to the office staff for their fantastic work, Seamus Geaney for the Service Area and Scrutiny Building, the Radisson Blu Hotel, to the stage commanders and marshals for their outstanding work, there is great credit due to each and every one of you for the way in which the stages were cleaned up after the rally. To the timekeepers and passage control, it was perfection as always. To Cork County Council and the residents for their patience and goodwill during the rally and of course to the Gardai who kept a watchful eye on the event. To our doctors, ambulance and rescue crews thank you very much. To CB Tool Hire for their sponsorship and support and of course to all our sponsors and program advertisers a very big 'thank you' as without your support this rally could not run. Motorsport Ireland, FIA, Pure Cork, Failte Ireland, the TROA, Southern 4 and the South East Stages championships all had a huge part in our rally. To all the members of the Munster Car Club, who worked long hours to get this over the line, take a bow for a job well done and also to our neighbouring Clubs for all their help.
I would love to mention each and everyone who was involved, but this would not be possible as there was in the region of 200 people behind this event and I might not get everybody in. Sincere thanks to my Deputy Brian McCarthy, it was a great pleasure and honor to work with you again this year.
