The abolotion of Letterkenny Town Council will put a dent in the finances of the Donegal International Rally.

For many years the local authority has allocated five figure sums to support the rally.

Councillors have recognised the importance of the event and the economic spin-off, but with no town council any more this means less money going directly to the rally each year.

Pascal Blake, in one of his final duties as Mayor of Letterkenny, spoke about the importance of the event at the rally press night.
