Cannonball Ireland is an annual gathering of supercar enthusiasts and drivers.



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 2012 Cannonball will take place on the 14th to 16th of September. The event will include upward of 150 classic and modern supercars covering 1000 km around Ireland to the delight of both owner/drivers and spectators alike over three days. The rally will start in Merrion Square Dublin on Friday the 14th and travel to Ballymena Co. Antrim where it will break for lunch at the Galgorm Resort and Spa. Following lunch the cars will travel the Giants Causeway Coastal Drive to the days finish in Belfast City where they will remain for the night.

On Saturday the group will depart Belfast and travel through Lisburn and Craigavon and on to Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh where they will stop for a meal at the Lough Erne Resort. The afternoon will see the convoy journey through Sligo City and Tuam to finish for the night in Galway.

The Sunday leg of the event will leave Galway in the morning heading to County Kilkenny. The location of both the lunch stop and also the celebrations at the event finish are undisclosed so as to leave an element of surprise for the participants.

There will be some truly amazing cars on show and as this is not a race, spectators will have a great chance to see and hear some of the most prestigious and unique cars from around the world as they parade through the breath taking landscapes and charming cities and towns along the 2012 route which will make this one of the most memorable motoring events you are likely to see.
