The weather over the opening three stages flattered to deceive as the top drivers headed out towards stage 4 with dry weather tyres on their cars and of course the rain started. Sods Law!

Fastest through that stage 4 was Declan Boyle, by just 2s from young Sam Moffett with Niall Maguire 3rd fastest a further 7s back. Tarmac Champion Darren Gass was lying 5th but his Subaru is reportedly parked at the start of stage 4. Third placed Darragh O`Riordan is still feeling unwell but has decided to keep going for another loop.

Frank Kelly and Gary McPhillips, with Rodney Wilton in close attendance, continue to battle it out for best Escort honours, just a handful of seconds between them. Best 2- wheel drive so far is Richard Moffett in the Starlet. Jonathan Pringle is just outside the leading bunch and Chris Armstrong has reportedly retired following a mishap on stage 2. Tommy Doyle in his Clio is back in 20th following his spin and time loss in stage 3. Barry Ryan is leading class 11 in his Escort. Damien O`Reilly was going to retire his Escort after stage 3 after electrical problems and no intercom.
New York based Longford man Enda McCormack was doing the rally in a ex Glen Allen Escort with Martin Brady co-driving, but the battery went flat at the start of stage 3 and they have retired.
