Photos from Streete Vintage Show which took place on Sunday 30th June 2019 in Streete Parish Park, Streete, Co. Westmeath.
A number of Breffni Vintage Club members recently brought their cars to Oak View Nursing Home, Belturbet, Co. Cavan.
This gave the residents an opportunity to revive many motoring memories.
Thank you to the members who took the time out of their day to spend time with the residents in Oak View.
Don’t forget, our autojumble will be taking place on Sunday the 24th of March at Kilmore Diocesan Pastoral Centre beside St. Patricks College in Cavan.
Breffni Vintage Club would like to wish all their members and friends a very happy and healthy new year and safe motoring throughout the year.
The club had their first run of the year on the first day of the year, how much more efficient than that can you get!
With ideal weather conditions a larger than usual group of motor bikes and cars assembled at Trisha’s Mini Market in Milltown Co. Cavan, where everyone was treated to scones and tea or coffee all under the watchful eye of Denis Wright. It was great to see Denis back in full flight after his recent surgery.
At the appointed hour of twelve midday Peter Reilly led the convoy off to Killeshandra, Crossdoney and Ballinagh before returning to Cavan town for more refreshments.
The club is indebted to Trisha’s mini market and Denis Wright for their efforts on our behalf.
This outing was originally for motorbikes but over the years has morphed into a very popular outing open to all vehicles. Congratulations to everybody involved.
On the 21st of October 2018 Breffni Vintage Club held our closing run for the 2018 vintage season. The damp start to the morning didn’t deter anyone and a large number of cars assembled at MacSeains Pub for the beginning of the run.The cars departed for the first half of the run which brought them to their mid way stopping point at Glenview House and Folk Museum in Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim where they were treated to some very welcome refreshments and snacks by the Kennedy family followed by a guided tour of the Folk Museum.
Glenview Folk Museum is home to over 7,000 unique artefacts carefully collected and preserved by the Kennedy family ensuring that old traditions are never forgotten. Brian’s guided tour went down a treat and gave everyone an appreciation for the importance of preserving these artefacts for future generations.
The cars reluctantly departed for the final part of the run after a very enjoyable visit to Glenview House and Folk Museum.
We’d like to say a special thank you to the Breffni Vintage Club members who organised the run, MacSeains Pub for hosting us and the Kennedy family at Glenview House and Folk Museum for their kind hospitality and opportunity to tour the museum.
As the 2018 season comes to an end we’d be remiss to not mention the tireless work of the Breffni Vintage Club committee who are constantly working behind the scenes ensuring the club’s success and making it an enjoyable experience for all it’s members. The club continues to grow year on year and it’s the hard work of the committee, sub committees and volunteers that is directly responsible for it’s continued success.
