Monaghan Motor Club hosted their annual prizegiving last weekend in the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan. The event commemorated club members success throughout the past Motorsport year. Ciaran Tynan was presented with the Trader’s Trophy as the 2019 Overall Club Champion.
Ciaran achieved this primarily in the navigator’s seat competing in Navigation events with his Uncle Michael Tynan, the Stages Rally with Martin McPhillips & Endurance Trial with Kieran McCarra. Ciaran secured overall wins on the Drumlin & March Navigation events as well as the Endurance Trial to secure the title with a round to spare. Ciaran has been competing for over 15 years and this is his first Trader’s success after consistently challenging for the title in recent years. Ciaran takes over as Club Champion from his cousin Martin ensuring the Traders Trophy remains in the Tynan household.
Other successes included Josh Moffett winning the National Rally Championship after a dominant year with his navigator Andy Hayes. Michael & Ciaran Tynan won the Gary Nesbitt Club Navigation Championship. Eoghan Corr received the Gerry McNamara trophy for his immense contribution to local motorsport.
There was a great turnout on the night and a great night was had by all. It was once again a very successful year for club members both locally and Nationally
