Like most organisations CDTEC has been impacted by the Covid19 pandemic and we were unable to hold our annual Working Festival last year.


This year, 2021, for public safety reasons, we are still unable to hold our rally in its usual format but we will be able to organise a Road Run during the usual weekend of the festival.


The Road Run will start from Eagle Hill Farm, Craigboy Road, Donaghadee, BT21 0LP at 2 00pm on Saturday 14th August.


Social distancing measures should be observed and entrants will be expected to complete a track and trace form.


The route is as follows:


Along Criagboy Rd - Millisle Rd - Ballyvester Rd - Ballyhay Rd - New Line - Killaughey Rd - Bally Black Rd East - Grangee Rd - Abbey Rd - Woburn Rd - Ballywalter Rd - Millisle Town - Moss Rd - Windmill Rd - Craigboy Rd.


As usual profits from the event will be used to support good causes in the local area.








Liam Mason 


It is with regret that CDTEC have to announce the death of a former chairman of the club, Liam Mason. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
