Ireland’s only three-day event is considered the Holy Grails of Irish rallying and a win in the northwest is akin to an All-Ireland football medal in this part of the world.

Muckross man O’Sullivan and his driver Callum Devine have won three of the biggest Irish rallies on the trot.

Their winning streak started on the Circuit of Ireland Rally over the Easter weekend, and this was quickly followed by a second Rally of the Lakes win in late April.

Adding the Donegal title to their list of impressive wins this season puts them in the driving seat to win the Irish Tarmac Rally Championship.

Last weekend’s result more than made up for the disappointment of their 2022 attempt at the Donegal Rally.

They crashed out on Sunday morning of the 2022 event while in a battle for the event lead.

“It is great to get the job done especially after the way last year ended for us, It felt a bit like unfinished business,” said O’Sullivan.

“It’s feels very special to join the list of winners of this iconic rally.”

Their main title rivals, Josh Moffett and Andy Hayes crashed out of the Donegal event on Sunday meaning that the Kerry/Derry pairing now has a 15-point advantage at the head of the table with just the Cork ‘20’ and the Ulster International left to run.
