**There is a query on the stage 3 time for Donagh Kelly that may affect the leaderboard. On the clock in the rally car the time is coming up as 3.44.8 but on the official times is showing as 4.21.1. Garry Jennings had 3.45.8 and Declan Boyle had 3.46.6. Donagh said at service. `We`ve been hitting a good pace, not all plain sailing, we were a bit sideways through the trees in stage 3 but going well`.

Garry Jennings said at service. `I am on the door handles, very sideways.` Garry`s co driver Rory Kennedy said. `I am looking out the side window most of the time, at the road ahead`. Even the spectators arriving into service are remarking at how fast and how sideways the Jennings Subaru appears. Declan Boyle is doing remarkably well considering it is the first time he has driven the left hand driver Fiesta in anger. Declan told us here at service. `There is a lot of learning left in the car. I am still here in the rally, which is important. It is hard to get the full speed out of the car. You feel you are going nowhere on the shorter distances but you do arrive at the next corner at a phenomenal speed.`

Seamus Leonard in 4th continues to impress in the McKinstry Subaru. Daragh O`Riordan is struggling with the suspension on his Fiesta WRC. Pat Kirk is leading Group N from Aidan Wray. Aidan has had his times adjusted and is well on the pace. Brian Brogan had a great run through stage 3 and was just a second down on Declan Gallagher. Brogan said. `I am happy to be here through the first 3 stages, well bedded in now`. Joe McGonigle is lying inside the top 10 of the International Rally despite having a big problem with the driver`s door of his Skoda not closing at the start of SS3. Tommy Doyle is up to 7th o/a in the International and set a time 2s up on Daragh O1Riordan through stage 3.
