DD Motoring: Where on earth is like the hills of Donegal?

first_imgWho would ever dream that Radio Luxembourg once sponsored the Donegal International Rally, well they did.That’s what the event meant to the people that competed on it back in its infancy.When the world-famous Derry born songwriter, Phil Coulter heard that the Donegal Motor Club were without a sponsor for the event in the mid 70’s. Advertisement Back then Phil was a competitor and, also a friend of Cathal Curley’s, who won the event three years on the trot. Phil was a hit with Donegal Motor Club when he convinced one of the most famous radio stations of its time to believe in and sponsor the Donegal Rally.Former winner of the Donegal International Rally Cathal Curley and John Lyons on a trip down memory lane at the launch of Deja Vu Donegal in Aid of the Donegal Hospice. Photo Brian McDaidThat was one of the best rally ever. Achim Warmbold arrived in Donegal from Germany, and to this day we still can’t pronounce his name properly but we will never forget his zebra looking green and white BMW, which never put a foot wrong all weekend in the summer of ’75.Warnbold was world Rally Material winning in Poland and Austria outright in ’73. Now he was swapping the Alpine hills of Austria for the Hills of Donegal.This is only one year in the nearly 50 years that the Deja Vu Donegal is hoping to celebrate Advertisement First Secretary“Ah, Hello Brian.. it’s Phonsie McElwee here… There’s a press conference down here at the moment at the Donegal Oil Company…. Don’t know if you were notified…  but if you’re about.. sure take a wee run down… sure… Thanks, Brian.”That was the call this week to me from a founder member and first-ever secretary of the Donegal Motor Club, Milford’s Phonsie McElwee invited as a guest to the press conference but on the phone this Tuesday morning working away in the background to steer the first Déjà vu Donegal into the County for its press conference.Thumbs up from James Cullen, Cathal Curley and John Lyons, who between them won the Donegal International Rally an amazing seven times.

If you have a car that was rallied back in the day or a replica car, this is the event for you.Former winners like Cathal Curley are taking part in the weekend drive which will end with a gala dinner at Jacksons Hotel, which is the rally headquarters for the forthcoming event.Beatty Crawford and Alan Tyndall are the men behind the Déjà Vu’s this will be their fifth event.

In Donegal, it was his brother Esler Crawford that put  Donegal on the map in print as one of the best if not the best motorsport photographers to stand on a ditch in Donegal come rally time. Beatty, who is a doctor by profession, recalled working with his brother back in the day heading into the news editors at publications like the Belfast Telegraph and flogging his brother’s images of the first Donegal Rally then patiently waiting the following day to see if the paper used any.Grace Boyle chairperson for the Donegal Hospice pictured with James Cullen double winner of the Donegal International Rally and also served as Clerk of the Course for the event pictured with Phone McElwee founder member and first Secretary of the Donegal Motor Club pictured at the Launch of the Deja Vuu Donegal 2019.

Where entrants can avail of an early bird rate.Donegal HospiceTo date, Déjà Vu and the events it has organised so far have raised over €100,000 for charities, and this year’s event hopes to continue in that fundraising path by nominating the Donegal Hospice as the local charity to benefit from the weekend’s nostalgia.Roads used on the Donegal over the years like Glen, Atlantic Drive and even that classic of the early years like the “Round the houses” stage in Ramelton will all be included on the 120-mile tour.Jim Callaghan Former Clerk of the Course and his son Gerard with Double winner John Lyons at the press conference for Deja Vu Donegal 2019 which will run in August 30th and 31st Photo Brian McDaid.At the press conference at the Donegal Oil Company offices this week three multi winners of the Donegal International who notched up 7 victories between them.

Be Bold !!

first_imgI don’t know if you’ve attended HR conferences or SHRM chapter meetings. I have a feeling that many HR pros want to do this, but they may have not gone to them . . . yet. There may be great reasons that you haven’t taken this step yet, but I want to challenge this (and some other things.)When you attend conferences, you see HR pros attracted to sessions where they can receive encouragement and/or motivation. This is great and also telling. Everyone likes a shot in the arm to get energized. I think these sessions are so full because people are just flat worn out. I don’t want to support a “woe is me” stance for Human Resources practitioners. I don’t think it’s needed. There’s too much of the deconstruction of HR out there. I want to see that turned completely around, and never take that approach again . . . ever.This past week I read something that describes most of HR. It said, “The majority of people wish for safety. You should be bold instead !!”I completely agree with this sentiment. When I scan the HR landscape, the tone of the profession is to play to the middle and keep as much stasis as possible. Keep everything, and everyone, calm. We’ve done our best to remove the excitement, passion and fun in the workplace. Isn’t it ironic then that when we go to HR events, we seek the presentations that will fill us with the same items that we’ve tried to squelch?The only thing holding people back from being bold in who they are and what they do, is the voice of doubt that runs like an endless tape in our heads. The desire to take bold steps is inherent in all of us, but the fear that we sense becomes irrational and leads us to maintain the status quo.Aren’t you tired of this? Why would you keep practicing HR if it continues to be frustrating and mundane? Time to be bold !!The key thing to note in making a 180 degree move like this is to be connected to others who have gone before you. There may not be an overwhelming number of these folks but they exist. I’d encourage you to start being bold by getting out and finding HR events to attend. It will be difficult to make this sort of transformation just through your own efforts at your workplace. It will seem so out of the norm to those you work with that you could become quickly discouraged.When you gather with other HR pros, you can connect and network with those who can encourage you. You’ll find that those who are bold themselves are never alone. They surround themselves with others who also are willing to not except the ordinary as the norm. I’ve also seen that they welcome the chance to help others and make themselves available. They relish the chance to see more HR folks practice boldly !!So, when the voices of “I can’t spend time away . . . ” or “My company won’t support . . .” or “I can’t afford . . .” start playing in your head – you have to ignore them and look for ways to get to HR gatherings. If something is too far away, then find something local or virtual. If something is too costly or out of your budget, read HR blogs and get active in social media forums. If your company won’t support you, then don’t settle. You need to push back and show them that they will benefit from you receiving professional development and having more HR resources.I know this is risky and I know that it will be challenging. I also know that it’s a much better way to live and practice HR !! There is no need to keep playing it safe. Join me and be bold !!Originally posted on Everyday People blog.last_img read more
