Just letting everyone know that the ATWR press release was sent out this morning to Newspapers, radio stations and websites, so here's hoping that its picked up by some of the media outlets and we get some publicity.
If you see it anywhere or if you know anyone that would be interested in the press release let us know.
Here's the press release:
3rd Feb 2011 - All The Way Round Press Release
All the way round
What happens when a group of motoring enthusiasts get together on the internet? They drive around the coastline of Ireland raising money for charity. During the three day event last year, 13 brave souls took to the Irish roads covering 1300km in 9 cars. Nearly 7,000 Euro was raised in aid of Barretstown.
‘This year we hope to raise much more than that!’ says Donal Rafferty one of the organisers of the charity event. ‘Our target this year is 10,000 euro.’
The three day event starts this year in Dublin, Day one is Dublin to Donegal town via the northeast coast and across the northern roads of Northern Ireland.
Day two is Donegal town to Limerick taking in the west of the country as far as Clifden.
Day three then concludes with a trip from Limerick down to Cork and then back to the finish line in Dublin.
Here is the route outline by day in Google maps.

Looks class. Fair play to Draffodx and Bodhan who both contributed to it.
Also to Kev_Longshanks for the photography.
Would have been nice to get a picture of the crew from last year in it, but how-and-ever, nice piece.
Hopefully it works.
Cheers for the invite along lads...
None of the pics from last year suited the collage I tried a few different ones in the bottom left corner to use with the text but none of them worked well.
Even photoshopping your civic out didn't help lol
It wasn't an organised shoot, Kev_Longshanks was free one evening and a few of us were rounded up to get some photos taken.
There was a Plan to have a big photoshoot type meet but due to Kev's personal commitments, poor sod is getting married, we ended up having a very off the cuff meet at short notice. We only decided the venue on the day sure. I can assure you, no offence was intended
If you look closely you will see that I have my work trousers and steel toe boots on.
I had to head straight from work too, wearing a stereotypical adidas jacket
