George Glover just rang to say that the weather has taken a hand and caused the postponement of this evening’s scheduled Kingdom Veteran Vintage & Classic Car Club’s eighth annual charity run from Ó Riada’s Bar and Restaurant.

The run, in aid of Downs Syndrome Kerry, was scheduled to get underway at 7pm.

Reschedule Over the Weekend

A decision will be made over the weekend on the re-scheduled date and time – with an eye on the weather.

The run was due to leave Ó Riada’s and head for Farranfore, then to Currow Village, on to Dromulton by Davy Roche’s Cross down to Castleisland, back by Garvey’s SuperValu and onto the bypass and return to Ballymacelligott.

For further information, you’re invited to contact: George Glover on 087 28 14 545 or Lucy Breen on 087 41 41 158.

However, it could be a couple of days away but it will come. It was very low at the weekend in the midst of all the fine weather and, lo and behold, so it transpired.
