Despite the rain there was a great atmosphere in the racecourse as the club laid on an open air big screen TV so those attending the event could watch the All Ireland football final too.

“Members of the club left no stone unturned in organising this event and the huge turn-out is a credit to their hard work and commitment,” explained club member Rich O’Donoghue.

“After the two year break there was great excitement building ahead of this event which welcomed over 140 vintage cars, jeeps and motorbikes from 1922 to 2002 on show. Along with these impressive vintage cars, jeeps and motorbikes the newly restored 1982 Toyota Starlet was also on display.

“This attracted massive attention and people were very generous in supporting the club’s raffle which is supporting a number of local charities.”

The club thanked Killarney Racecourse and Navé Coffee House and The Spúnóg Takeaway for their hospitality on the day.

“A fantastic result meant the day ended on a high. We would like to wish the Kerry team a massive congratulations on a brilliant performance. It was a great day all around,” added Rich.

The Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club were delighted and very appreciative of the support from the public and the people who brought their vintage vehicles which are a credit to the owners who are preserving the great cars of the past into the future,”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
