Horsepower of a different kind is set to take over Killarney Racecourse next week.

The venue will host three different car events across two weekends in September.
On September 5, the racecourse will host the finish of the Bumblebee 1000 Supercar ‘South Coast Drive’.
Over 40 supercars, including examples of Porsche, Lamborghini, Ford Mustang and Aston Martin will set off from Dublin on September 3 to raise money for the Jack and Jill Foundation.

After overnight stops in Wexford and Cork the drivers will make their way to the finish line at Killarney Racecourse. More details of this event will be released in due course but the cars are expected in Killarney around 2pm on September 5.

Two weeks later the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club will run its annual classic car show at the Ross Road venue.

This is the first time since 2019 that the local classic car club will run its annual show and this year they will join forces with Killarney Cars ‘n Coffee to run a double-header event on September 19.

“Killarney Cars ‘n Coffee was always looking for a new venue after a successful run at KC Print,” local organiser Ger Neeson told the Killarney Advertiser.
“By working with Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club we can show what we do alongside another established event.”

Tom Leslie of Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club said the club was looking forward to running its event after a two year absence.

“It is time to get those cars polished,” he said. “We usually run in July but we had to wait until we could see what we could do with all the restrictions and we are delighted to be back up and running.”

It’s back – and not before time – the hugely popular Killarney Rotary Club evening of Wine and Art will return this November.

The pandemic enforced its absence and now every effort is being made to make up for lost time.

Widely regarded as one of the social highlights of the year in Killarney, this year’s gathering will take place in the Great Southern Killarney on Wednesday, November 30, commencing at 7.15pm.

Tickets, which will be available at the door, are priced at €20 and all proceeds raised on the night will go to deserving local charities and community organisations.

Over the years the evening of wine and art has raised tens of thousands of Euro for great causes and the 2022 proceeds will be of enormous benefit to the chosen groups.

This year, once again, the event is being held in association with Daly’s SuperValu and supported by Killarney Brewing and Distilling Company.

Rotary Club President, Rayla Tadjimatova, has appealed to all artists who might like to showcase their work on the night to get in touch with club members, as soon as possible, to guarantee inclusion.

“We are reaching out not only to artists who have supported the event in the past but to any new artists who wish to take the opportunity to place their work in front of a very appreciative local audience of up to one thousand people on the night,” she said.

Those interested should email killarneyrotaryclub@gmail.com as soon as possible.
