    Unlikely, maybe in a few years but with Brazil and perhaps North America and other locations coming on the calendar the chances are slim. Not sure there's an appetite for it from the two governments now, times have moved on especially with golf now being seen as a better investment by Stormont. If the IRC CoI becomes a regular spot we'll do ok.

    The calendar for next year’s World Rally Championship is being constructed in Paris this week, with the 2013 schedule under discussion at the World Rally Championship Commission.
    There’s strong speculation that Brazil and South Africa could come in to replace Rally New Zealand and the Acropolis Rally from this year’s itinerary – with the FIA president Jean Todt pursuing his stated aim of a calendar including six rallies inside Europe and six rallies outside. That, the Frenchman says, is a World Rally Championship.
    Early indications are that the 2013 calendar will come from this list (in no particular order):
    Monte Carlo Rally
    Rally Sweden
    Rally Mexico
    Rally Portugal
    Rally Brazil*
    Rally Argentina
    Rally South Africa*
    Rally Finland
    Rally Germany
    Rally Australia
    Rally de France
    Catalunya Rally
    Rally d’Italia
    Rally GB
    Brazil and South Africa have to run candidate events and there are believed to be concerns over Rally d’Italia – with the FIA believed to be seeking further assurances of a shift back the mainland.
    One of the crucial parts of the discussion will be whether there are 12 or 13 rounds of the 2013 World Rally Championship, with the manufacturers preferring less rallies and the FIA seeking a retention of the current number of 13. Four long-haul rallies (Mexico, Argentina, Australia and South Africa or Brazil) will be selected to run alongside eight or nine European events.
    Rally New Zealand has been hit by renewed questions over the cost of getting to Auckland allied to the small car market and population base, while the Acropolis Rally poses a difficult moral question, run in a country which is suffering major economic difficulties.

    Ireland has both of these problems on the one Island, so cant see why they would bother to continue trying to get Rally Ireland running again.

    Why would they bother about it anymore anyway? after watching the top IRC boys in action you get the same comitted driving without all the politics, cost and general ******** with the wrc brigade, the coverage that the wrc supplied was no better than what eurosport and the irc supplied so value for money a regular spot in the IRC series would be better suited to this country rather than breaking the bank to please jean todt every couple of years,

    But sure rally Ireland was never on the cards for 2013 or I don't think since 2010 so I don't think there should be any disappointment
