The official route for Cannonball 2018 has been announced and County Mayo will once again be hosting the supercar spectacle on Friday September 8th.
The event was in Westpost in 2016 and it was such a huge success that it has been chosen once again in 2018 to host the event for the 10th anniversary year with free family entertainment.
Last year (2017) Cannonball got a rapturous welcome in Claremorris but it was only a lunch pitstop for a few hours. Thousands lined the streets to welcome the event.
Cannonball is set to roll on September 7th – 9th with over 190,000 people expected to line the streets all around Ireland. Top mark cars will blaze a trail through the country.
It has already raised €960,000 for Irish charities and this year, the milestone of €1,000,000 raised for charities will be broken. The official charity of Cannonball 2018 will be Ireland’s 24-hour listening service for children and young people, Childline.
