A few photos from the Killarney forest Rally. This rally was the final round of the Irish Forestry Championship and also a round of the British gravel championship. So the pace was very fast as the British championship was undecided and for the Irish drivers it was a chance for them to prove themselves to the British crews.

Wow..some great action shots from Ireland. Surprised to see some old Ford Escorts still being used...hard.

We rented one over in England about '77. Had the 1.3 liter 4 cylinder...does that sound right?

Also rented a Peugeout 205... around '85, which looked like the one with O'Conner written across the hood...or bonnet , as I guess they say over on your side of the big pond..

The escorts are the biggest part of rallying here. I think Ireland would have more WRCs and escorts rallying than anyway in the world.
The spec of the Escort sounds right, but the monsters above are very different and are worth more than the Mitsubishi Evos so are around the 150,000+ euro mark for the good ones. The 205 is rear wheel drive now and would be much the same spec as an escort so it will be "on the rack" for the entire rally.
