Craig stayed true to his Irish roots with the use of the well known rallying quote.

The worlds worst kept secret was confirmed yesterday when Craig Breen along with navigator Paul Nagle were announced as part of the M- Sport World rally team for the next 2 seasons as the Blue Oval brand prepare to debut their new Ford Puma Hybrid world Rally car. Releasing a promotional video to announce their new signing, Craig Breen ended the piece by quoting a well known Irish rallying line "Flat to the Square right". It was a phrase coined by Armagh navigator Barry Mc Gleenon when he was calling the notes for Monaghan driver Paddy Reilly in the Donegal international rally a number of years ago. Sean Mc Caffrey spoke to Barry who now works and resides in  London about the phrase came about and how it has become a catchphrase for Breen on his world rally journey
