AGM 2015 March 9th 8.30pm


Tony Clarke & Pat Foley

Congratulations to Pat Foley who was awarded the Club person of the Year award by Tony Clarke at the AGM on Monday March 9th.  Pat will be known to all members for his regular attendance at most club events with camera in hand.  He has been very generous over the years with his time and quality photos he takes and shares with us all.  Well done Pat.

Club AGM in the West Wicklow Inn at 8.30pm for members to attend.  The club is 30 years old this year so would welcome all members.  We can accept sub renewals on the night for those who have not renewed already.

As normal we shall review last years events and outline events planned for this year as well as the usual housekeeping items.

We look forward to seeing you there.


Autumn Run 2014


We had a fantastic Autumn Run on Sunday Sept 21st to Emo Court helped in no small way by the  great sunny weather and it was a lovely way to finish off the summer runs relaxing with a picnic on the gardens around EMO court.   The lovely drive down from Russborough through Kilcullen and across the Curragh was put together by Keith Pearson and Bob Webster so many thanks to them for that.  The directions seemed to make sense to everyone as we had very few straying off the route sheets and there are always a few who wander!

The Curragh Golf Club proved a lovely finish venue with setting sun backdrop on the golden shades in the tree belt opposite the clubhouse balcony when we sat for the refreshments as the finishers awards were handed out.

PS If you were on the run and did not get your award send on an email and we can have it with us for collection at the next evening run.

We will have a stand at the show and welcome all club members to drop by and say hello.  We are located beside the Richard Noble World Land Speed record stand in the middle of the hall.  It’s stand E30 for anyone who has a map.

Hope to see you over the weekend.


Thanks to everyone who called to the stand and hope everyone had a good time.  Many thanks to the exhibitors for their cars and Paul Clarke for the many photos that have been uploaded to the Gallery, it almost feels like being there again.

Event: Mince Pie Run 2013

Mince Pie Run 2013 visit to Jim & Josie Ginty small

The annual Mince Pie Run took place on the 27th of December, starting in St Kevin’s Community Center, Dublin road Blessington.

The weather started out mixed in Blessington but as we drove into Kildare the monsoon type rains made driving difficult so the stop at Jim & Josie Ginty’s collection of cars and automobilia was well appreciated by everyone as its allowed us get out of the rain and explore the many treasures to find answers to the quiz set by Michael & Brian.

The finish at Toughers helped everyone catch up and warm up and despite the weather this events continues to have a special place in everyone’s diary of events around Christmas season.

Our Thanks to Jim & Josie for their hospitality.
