Boland wasn't in the event last year as it clashed with the recce for rally GB. Maybe with rally Ireland this year, he might give rally GB a miss and do his local event. It would be great to see him and Stevie renew their old rivalry. There's always a great battle among the modified men and a great battle is likely to rage among David James, Liam Wall, Willy Whitty, James Coleman, James Stafford and maybe another few like Terence O Shaughnessy, John Nolan, Seamus Doyle....... Plenty of tail out action!!!

Very true and Billy Collins is another, always up there with the class pace setters. He done 00 last year in the Wexford single stage with his daughter Sharon on the notes and alot of the crowd were commenting back at hq how good he was to watch. John Somers and Mark Kennedy will be two more very quick fella's in the 1600 16v class.

No, he slid of the road and damaged the car, he could not continue. Hopefully he will do well in Wexford, as he had started the year well, but has had a bit of bad luck recently.

I actually remember that corner that ollie went off on it was really slippy there, we had cautioned it on the recce as it was greasey on the recce, it wasnt too far into stage one it was only two or three mile in, was the car badly damaged??
