Rallying in Ireland is not a Minority Sport

For Many years now Rallying in Ireland has been regarded as a minority sport and yes compared to GAA and football we may have a smaller following. However, our passion for our sport is no less than that of the GAA competitor/fan. We compete in all weathers, we support in all weather. In Irish rallying there are very few financial gains to be made and indeed many competitors compete on a shoe-string budget and struggle to get sponsors. This is mainly due to the fact that our sport is regarded as a "minority sport" and while the GAA and football get 2,3,4 pages in a paper or 2hours coverage on TV or Radio Irish Rallying may get a paragraph or a few minutes air-time. The few outlets we have are reducing the slot times for tv even cutting the programs all together. In these times of "recession" companies will require more incentive to sponsor competitors so.... We the undersigned are asking you the media outlets to give us more pages in your paper, give more coverage on TV and radio and help increase public awareness in Rallying and in turn hopefully offer returns for both you and Irish competitors alike
