Closing Run 2017

On Sunday 22nd Nov. 2017 the Breffni vintage club held their final run of the season. Noel Grainger and Raymond Mc Dermot were the organisers for the day and what a successful job they made of it, everything was run to perfection.

Over fifty cars assembled at Derrylin Hall for 10.30 where a wonderful reception awaited them. The hall was heated and a mouth watering array of cakes and breads and biscuits was on display and all home made. The members were very reluctant to leave this cosy atmosphere. Our gratitude to the ladies and the organisers for their hospitality.

We eventually took to the bye roads of Fermanagh taking in Kinawley and Killesher enroute to the museum in Enniskillen. Here the organisers had arranged for the museum to be opened specially for us and a guided tour was provided as well. The recently refurbished museum was enthralling with many wonderful artefacts, I think the staff thought we might never leave.

On the return journey the motorcade diverted via Knockninny before returning to the Seven Horseshoes in Belturbet where Francie Cahill and staff provided the usual customary hospitality and a fine meal was enjoyed by all before setting out for home and so another year of outings drew to a close with everybody looking forward to next year.

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.
