The parish of Cashel was witness to a magnificent spectacle last Sunday ,when the powerful cars  in the Midland Moto Rally,powered along the roads of our parish.This was a sight to behold,and from very early on in the morning the cars could be heard ,resonating through the air of a beautiful clear and
sunny day,It was tremendous to see so many visitors and spectators watching the highly talented drivers and navigators perform and it would be brilliant if this spectacle became an annual event in our parish.Special mention must go to the organisers,on having such a well run and highly professional event.Well done to all..
