The 12th. Vintage Car and Honda 50 Run will take place on the coming Sunday, August 7th.

Organised by the Ballymacelligott Vintage Club, this year’s event will follow the 2021 route and format change.

As it has done over that dozen years, Sunday’s run will begin on the grounds of Ó Riada’s Bar and Restaurant.

Cars, Bikes and Coffee

At 9:30am there will be a ‘cars, bikes and coffee’ gathering at Ó Riada’s and then the drivers can take part in the optional run over a completely new 60 mile or so route and finishing in Castleisland.

“All cars and motorbikes are welcome on the day, be they road, rally, vintage or classic,” said organiser in chief, George Glover.

Generous Sponsorship

“Thanks to the generous sponsorship from local businesses, including Ó Riada’s and BG Motors, we will have over €500 worth of spot-prizes on the day and the first will be awarded at 10am.,” said George.

The proceeds from this event have always gone to a worthy, local cause and, this year, all proceeds will go to Glanageenty Walkways.
