On Sunday September 10th at 4pm, CANNONBALL came back to the Barack Obama Plaza in Moneygall where spectators could get up close and personal with 190 of the finest cars on the planet and enjoy the unique festival atmosphere that Cannonball is renowned for.   Over 5000 people flocked to teh barack Obama Plaza to see the supercar spectacle  Now in its ninth year, CANNONBALL has raised almost €900,000 for Irish Charities and this year, proceeds will go to Make-a-Wish Ireland.  Top mark cars including McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Masseratti, Rolls Royce and Bentley

The gleaming convoy of 190 supercars and novelty cars worth an estimated €32million drove through almost 1000 kilometers of Irish open roads.  There was an electric atmosphere featuring Las Vegas Show Girls, live music, DJs, Audionetworks Transformers and Robots, family fun, the Cannonball Grid Girls, The Monster Energy JAM Truck, local entertainers and dignitaries, CANNONBALL official merchandise and, of course, the unmistakable roar of 190 supercars.  Proceeds from the event this year go to Make a Wish Ireland, a children’s charity that grants magical wishes to children between the ages of 3 – 17 years with life-threatening medical conditions.
