A group of classic car enthusiasts from France has been enjoying a week-long touring holiday around Ireland. They’ve been travelling from east to west and back again, incorporating some tourism hotspots.
The 140 car enthusiasts took in the Wicklow Mountains and the Sally Gap, as well as Powerscourt Waterfall.
Supported by Tourism Ireland and Irish Ferries, the annual ‘Celtic Classic Rally 2016’ came to Ireland for the first time ever and was organised by the TTP (Tout Terrain Promotion) Association.
It saw some 140 classic car enthusiasts and owners undertake the extensive driving tour around Ireland, covering more than 1,600km in 62 classic cars which included Triumphs, Mercedes, Jaguars and Porsches.
Elmagh Killeen, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Southern Europe, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome the Celtic Classic Rally 2016 to Ireland and we wish them a really successful and enjoyable tour, which will be a really great way for them to discover Ireland.’
