Car lovers are in for a treat on Sunday, September 19 when two of Killarney’s best-loved motoring events come together for a car show at the racecourse.

Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club has joined forces with Cars N’Coffee Killarney to stage an event that is open to: “Vintage, classic, retro and modern cars,” according to event organisers.

Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club usually holds its annual show at Killarney Racecourse but the event has not run since June 2019 as a result of the pandemic.

Cars N’Coffee Killarney held one low-key event last summer after hosting successful monthly meetings in 2019.

Now, the two shows are coming together to create one big motoring event that will cater for all aspects of car culture in the Killarney area.

Over 200 cars, from the 1930s to modern times will be on display at the Ross Road venue.

Tom Leslie, of the Killarney Valley Classic and Vintage Club is a member of the organising committee.

Speaking to the Killarney Advertiser at a special launch event on Wednesday night he said he was looking forward to re-starting the car scene in Killarney.

“It is great to be back in action and we are delighted to be linking with Cars’NCoffee to create one big motor show in the heart of the town,” he said. “We will have everything from the 1930s to the 2000s, featuring vintage, classic, retro and modern cars.”

The event will raise funds for St Francis' Special School in Beaufort.

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!”
