Ballina Mayo Stages RallyMayo Fianna Fáil T.D. Dara Calleary has expressed his satisfaction that the 2013 Mayo Stages Rally is returning to its natural base in Ballina.

The Rally, to be held in Ballina and surrounding areas on March 10th, was launched in Hotel Ballina last weekend and is expected to attract 1000s of visitors to the North Mayo capital.

Deputy Calleary said, “I am delighted that the Mayo Stages Rally is returning to Ballina this year. I attended the official launch of the event last weekend in Hotel Ballina and I was really taken by the overwhelming enthusiasm that prevailed at the event.

“This event is a timely boost for the business and retail sector in Ballina and indeed in surrounding areas, and I commend the Mayo & District Motorsport Club and Ballina Chamber for bringing the rally back to Ballina because there is no doubt that it will bring a massive spin off for local B&Bs, hotels and restaurants,” he said.

The Mayo Stages Rally will attract over 130 participants as well as huge numbers of spectators from all over the country, generating a €500,000 boost to the local economy.

The Rally will commence with a ceremonial start in Ballina Town Centre on Saturday evening.
