Members of the Kingdom Veteran Vintage & Classic Car Club will embark on their eighth annual charity run from Ó Riada’s Bar and Restaurant on the coming Friday evening, July 21st at 7pm.

While they have built up quite a following over the previous seven runs, they’re still issuing invitations to kindred spirits, Silver Ghosts and Honda 50s to join them.

Downs Syndrome Kerry

The weekend’s run will benefit Downs Syndrome Kerry and a collections bucket will be in operation on a voluntary donations basis.

With Ó Riada’s as its point of beginning and end, the convoy of gleaming relics of old decency will head for the roundabout beyond Ballygarry House Hotel.

Cross Country Trip

There, they’ll turn left for Farranfore and head on to Currow Village, over by Dromulton to Davy Roche’s Cross down to Castleisland, back by Garvey’s SuperValu and onto the bypass and off back to Ballymacelligott.

The club increased its charity take a couple of years ago by inviting Honda bike owners to join them on the run.

Lessons Learned

Taking the age of the participating vehicles into consideration they now avoid challenging, hilly routes and opt for flatter circuits after lessons learned over the last few years.
