Route 2014

CANNONBALL 2014 consists of 3 action packed days taking in some of Ireland’s most scenic routes. On day one, the cars will leave DUBLIN at 11am and arrive in Carrick-on-Shannon in County Leitrim for a lunch stop. The next CANNONBALL pitstop is at a TOP SECRET LOCATION, somewhere in the middle of the beautiful scenery Leitrim has to offer us. The gleaming convoy of supercars will then proceed to SLIGO arriving at 6pm.

DAY 2 on Saturday September 13th, CANNONBALL leaves SLIGO at 11.00am to take in a stunning drive through Sligo and Mayo counties. A TOP SECRET LOCATION is the next stop passing breath-taking views of numerous lakes. Finally we arrive in Galway, the social hotspot of West Ireland for a night. 

On Sunday morning Cannonballers will leave Galway at 11am and go to Cahir, Co.Tipperary for a lunch. From there the cars will close a Cannonball Festival before descending on Tullamore in County Offaly at 6pm for the finish line where the roars of the engines will compete with a cheering crowd of over 10,000 people.

It's good fun for a good cause. It's four-wheeled masterpieces and their roaring melody. The most prestigious and unique cars of the world roll through breath-taking landscapes and the charming cities and towns of Ireland, making this the most memorable motorised masquerade you have ever seen.

We talk about the Cannonball 'buzz', a concept impossible to define. The closest thing to it is camaraderie but infused with adrenaline and the secure knowledge that you are going to have a blast for three full days. It is matchless and unmissable.
