Closing Run 2013

On Sunday 13th October Breffni Vintage Club had our closing run for 2013. The run began in Derrylin in glorious sunshine at St. Ninnidhs hall where refreshments were served. We made our first stop on the top of Doon where we learned about some of the history of the area.


The next stop was at a monument in tribute to the border busters 1 mile outside of Swanlinbar.



The run then went through Swanlinbar and headed towards Kinawley passing by Mullen mart. Our next stop was at Aughakillymaude Community and Mummers Centre where we had some refreshments and a talk about the centre.



Four Wolseley 1500’s and a Riley 1.5 attended the run so a photo was taken of all 5 together.


Our final portion of the run took us back to Derrylin where we finished the day with a meal in Blake’s restaurant.

Some more photos from the run can be seen below:
