Spectators will 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. Cannonball has always been a star-studded affair and celebrities over the years include Boyzone’s Shane Lynch who is a firm devotee and even has the logo tattooed on his leg and Superstar Bruno Mars also joined him one year for a stage of Cannonball. Other household names included former Miss World Rosanna Davison and husband Wes Quirke, Glenda Gilson, Rachel Allen, Roz Purcell, Nadia Forde, Ryan Tubridy, Mick Galway and Dirty Sanchez. Former Taoiseach Enda Kenny and former President Mary Robinson have both dropped the famous cheqered flag. The notorious NYPD, German Polizei, The Pope, President Trump and colourful Cannonballers in crazy costumes add to the melee. From Spiderman to Star Wars, Cat Woman to Wonder Woman, Cheerleaders to Charlie’s Angels, Batman, The Joker and more, it is a totally unique free family day out.

Cannonball is the brainchild of Kildare businessman Alan Bannon. The benefit to the host towns for this event is estimated at €2,567,000 per year. Edenderry Chamber of Commerce approached Cannonball last year and were delighted when Alan Bannon gave the green light to Edenderry for the overall finish line.
