It’s been 14 years since the Mac and Norman Rally first embarked on its maiden voyage from Brannockstown and during that time community support has never ceased to amaze the organisers.

This year proved no different, as the Sully family set out to increase on the incredible €382,904 raised so far by this unique

Tractor after tractor and vintage car after car set off from the Sully home at Brannockstown at 1pm on Sunday, August 14, in a trail of happy drivers.

“We had a very big turnout, we had tractors, cars, motorbikes and lorries. It was great. It went really well. This is our fourteenth year and it was fantastic,” said Ann Sully.

Organised by Ann, her husband Mac and their family, they are also supported by an excellent committee.

“All the funds go directly to the Irish Cancer Society for research and palliative care,” added Ann.

“We were thrilled with the support we received and we would like to thank everybody who supported the event, everybody who turned out on the day and all those who took part.”

The rally made its way from Brannockstown to Kilcullen and on to The Priory, Walls of Kilgowan, with music and the usual charity auction taking place.

The total money raised is not available yet as the organisers are waiting on the final amount to come in. Irish Cancer Society
representative, Ena Barrett was also in attendance and was delighted with the support shown with people travelling from far afield to attend.
