Limerick looks set to welcome Cannonball back to the county, with it's largest event next month.

On Friday September 9th, Cannonball will blaze a trail from Malahide in Co. Dublin to Co. Cork with a fuel stop in Circle K Fermoy and lunch in The Blue Haven Kinsale in Co Cork.

The first finish line overnight stay will be at the Brehon Hotel in Killarney in Co Kerry. On Saturday September 10th the convoy will leave Killarney and take a fuel stop at Circle K Ballysimon and then lunch at The Oslo Bar in Salthill Co Galway and onwards to Sligo town for the second finish line and overnight stay. 

On Sunday September 11th the start line will be at Rosses Point Sligo and then lunch at Kilronan Castle in Ballyfarnon with a   fuel up at Casey’s Circle K in Co Roscommon before a big dramatic final finish line in Trim Co Meath on Sunday September 11th at 6pm.

The event has already raised €1,298,779 for Irish charities and organisers are hoping to reach €250,000 for The HOPE Foundation by the end of September.
