Monaghan Motorclub members to the fore in Navigation championship

Second place in the final round of the National Navigation Trial Championship at Aghabog, Co Monaghan, was enough to clinch the title for the second year in succession for the Monaghan-Cork pairing of Derek Mackarel and Muireann Hayes.


Although they finished well behind the event winners, Mickey and Ciaran Tynan, their nearest championship rivals, Cork’s James Fitzgerald and Ken Carmody, had problems and were unable to challenge the defending pair’s points lead.

The uncle and nephew partnership of the Tynans ended the season as winners of the Squealing Pig Border championship.
