On the 11.4km Ballynoe stage Roy White and Josh Moffett tied for fastest time. Keith Cronin still leads by almost 10s from Sam Moffett and just over 25s cover the top 4 cars. Cronin is still on course for the Clonakilty Blackpudding Tarmac Championship title, but he knows himself he has to keep a weather eye out on the charging cars behind. At service Keith commented. ‘I probably tried too soft a tyre and was a bit overly cautious through stages 5 and 6. I am a long way backed off it is hard to judge the situation’. Sam Moffett said ‘I really like these stages this afternoon I have a big push on’. Roy White was kicking for having fluffed the start of stage 5, he also changed some of the set up on his Fiesta WRC at lunch time but it seemed almost like a backward step. He has gone back to the settings from earlier and he is determined to give it a real go over the remaining 2 stages this afternoon.

Kevin Kelleher has had the dampers changed on his McKinstry Subaru and he is very happy with the way things are going, but he reckons he is braking inside the black lines of the leading cars but is still 1s per kilometre down on their pace. Callum Devine is just holding on to his 10th place in the International but he is coming under pressure from Marty Gallagher. Marty in his Peugeot 208 took 13s from Callum through stage 6. Callum feels that his Opel Adam may be down on power.

In the National Rally Eugene Meegan was fastest through stage 6 from Callum Duffy with Brian Brogan just a few seconds back. Brogan had a problem with his Escort screen misting up earlier today and then the differential needed changed, but he is settling down to the job in hand now. Donal O’Brien is 4th in the Nationals. Donal and his co driver Liam Brennan had a major moment earlier when the rear brakes in their Escort did not seem to bite and the car eventually careered sideways into a bank modifying the bodywork somewhat!
