Spring Rally, Sunday May 21st 10am at Russborough House

Hi everyone

Next Sunday morning we gather for our Spring Rally, starting from the ever splendid Russborough House on the N81 just south of Blessington.    Our plan is to gather at 10am to meet, have a chat and maybe some refreshments in the tea rooms.

We plan to leave at 11am for a drive through Wicklow and Kildare for a lunch stop in Kildare Town where there are a number of options for lunch.  The picnic option is to continue on to the afternoon stop at Lullymore Heritage & Discovery Park where facilities are available.  Full details are in the members mailshot distributed a few weeks back.

Hope we get dry weather and can see as many members and cars as possible on Sunday morning.

Monthly Winter Meetings

The monthly meetings restart Monday October 10th in the usual venue in Blessington at the West Wicklow Inn at 8.30pm.

These meetings provide a welcome chance to listen to fellow club members and guest speakers tell us about their restoration projects and trips to various Vintage Automotive runs and shows here and abroad.   Many of which are well know events but others have turned out to be unknown gems that provide ideas for personal trips.  So we look forward to welcoming all members.
