Coolgreany native Thomas O'Rafferty was presented with the overall Winners Cup from Carlow Car Club Championship for the third year in a row recently.
This is a first for any Carlow Car Club member. Des Ryan from Carlow Car Club and Michael Lyster, TV sports broadcaster presented Thomas with the well deserved award.
Michael asked Thomas what was the secret to his continuous success to which he replied consistency thanks to his engineer and father in law Seamus Woulahan for six years with very few mechanical issues.
The event took place in Mount Wosley in conjunction with the launch of the Carlow stages rally. Thomas put in some seriously quick times in his Vauxhall Nova throughout the season and done some rounds in his newly built Ford Fiesta 4x4 Cosworth making him a spectators dream and a competitors nightmare.
