MOGEELY RALLY 2005
Mogeely Rally was held this year on July 10, 2005 in absolutely brilliant weather conditions as it was a glorious day. Exhibitors were up by about 50% over last year and the public turnout was tremendous.
We have selected from this rally cars which were not at either Innishannon 2005 or Charleville 2005 and if you look at the combined photos of all three you have a pretty representative collection.
The museum was represented this year by Translink 2531, a Bristol RELL6G which looked brilliant in the sunshine and performed flawlessly.
