Cannonball Ireland 2013 Irelands Premier Classic & Super Car Event


Cannonball Ireland is an annual gathering of supercar enthusiasts and drivers. The group will drive in convoy on an intrepid and picturesque trip amongst some of Ireland’s most breath taking roads and scenery while raising funds for charity and is a fantastic spectacle for any performance car fans.

The 2013 Cannonball is taking place on the 23rd to the 25th of August. The event will include upward of 150 classic and modern supercars touring around Ireland to the delight of both spectators and drivers in equal measure over the three days. The event will start on day one by driving from Mondello, Naas, Co. Kildare through Abbeyleix and to Ballymaloe House in Middleton and then on to St. Patricks Street in Cork where the convoy will spend the night.

On day two Saturday August 24th, CANNONBALL will leave Cork at 10.30am to take in a spectacular drive taking in Bantry, Kenmare and Killarney and will arrive in Limerick at around 5pm for the night.

Day three Sunday August 25th will see the event leave Limerick at 10am and go to Killaloe for a very special Gathering of the ‘Men of the Water’. From there the cars will travel on to Cashel in Tipperary where at 1pm where they will close  the Cannonball Festival before descending on Tullamore in County Offaly at 6pm for the finish line and celebrations

There will be some truly amazing cars on show throughout the weekend and as this is not a race, spectators will have a great chance to see and hear some of the most prestigious and amazing cars from around the world as they parade through the breath taking landscapes and charming cities and towns along the 2013 route which will make this one of the premier motoring events you are likely to see in Ireland this year.
