A group of vintage car and tractor enthusiasts have got together in Knocknagoshel to organize the first every vintage run in the parish.

The organisers have travelled to many vintage runs and are now ready to welcome everyone with a vintage car or tractor to Knocknagoshel Village on Saturday, August 18th from 6.30pm.

For Downs Syndrome Kerry

Entry costs €10 and all the proceeds will go to Down Syndrome Kerry.

The route they have picked out will take in the highways and byways of Knocknagoshel and the organisers are expecting it to be an enjoyable tour around the area.

They’re also planning to make the run an annual event with the proceeds going to a different charity every year. For further info you can ring 087 9714255.

€2,246 from Kingdom Veteran & Vintage

Meanwhile, over 80 vintage cars and Honda 50s took part in the Kingdom Veteran Vintage & Classic Car and Honda 50 Run from Ó Riada’s Bar and Restaurant in Ballymacelligott at the end of July.

The occasion marked the ninth annual running of the event and it managed to raise €2,246 for Downs Syndrome Kerry.

Organising group member George Glover wishes to thank all who took part, donated or supported the event in any way. He particularly mentioned: Ó Riada’s Bar; BG Motors, Killarney, and Daly Transport, Fahaduff for their help in the running of the event.
