Simmer Dim Rally gallery

OLLABERRY has been a hive of activity over the last few days thanks to the Simmer Dim Rally.

Having started in the early 1980s, this year is the 40th time the bikers’ rally has been held. This year nearly 400 people attended.

Thanks to Dave Donaldson for the photos from the rally from Saturday.
