The West Wicklow Inn in Blessington is the venue of our winter meetings again for 2015/2016 season. Meetings are set to start at 8.30pm and are held on the second Monday of each month.
We have a different speaker each month talking about their restoration projects, various motoring collections and events attended abroad.
The dates for your diary then are
March 14th AGM.
We hope you can attend some of these evenings to keep in touch while the cars are wrapped up.
Our 30th year Celebrations continue with a Christmas Dinner at Lawlors Hotel, Naas. The Pre dinner Reception is at 7.30pm.

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.
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.
