26th June, 2016

On behalf of the Carrick on Suir Motor Club, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Waterford, for the 45th staging of the Ravens Rock Rally. The Ravens Rock Rally is promoted and organised by the Carrick on Suir Motor Club Ltd.

The event will commence with a ceremonial start in the heart of Waterford City, on Saturday evening the 26th June at 19.30 hrs. Introducing the ceremonial start to the Rally is an attempt to raise the profile of rallying to the people of Waterford City and County. It has grown in popularity, and now forms an integral part of showcasing the cars and the drivers of the rally to the general public. The ceremonial start also gives the club the opportunity to highlight our event sponsors, without whom it would not be possible to hold the rally.

We look forward to meeting you all in Waterford!

1st July, 2016 - 3rd July, 2016

Now in its third year, the award-winning ’Promenade Festival’ in Tramore, Co Waterford is a family outing you won’t want to miss. Capturing the true essence of times past and classic seaside fun, the Promenade Festival has grown into the biggest seaside family festival in Ireland. It continues to go from strength to strength, with organisers anticipating crowds well into the tens of thousands again this summer.

Last year’s festival featured a spectacular Air Show over Tramore Bay, as well as street theatre, live music, magic shows, an artisan food and craft village and much more. The festival also celebrates the work of the Emergency Services, who will again showcase their skills with exciting demonstrations over the three day event. It is believed that organisers have redesigned the festival site this year and added some special family treats that won’t be revealed until festival-goers arrive.
