THE Vin­tage Sec­tion at Charleville Show has a rep­u­ta­tion as one of the largest vin­tage shows in Ire­land and the “one” to be at.

This year prom­ises to be at its best. A lit­tle more con­cen­tra­tion is to be given to the work­ing arena to create a buzzing at­mos­phere with tim­ber saw­ing driven by steam engine and steam driven stone crusher. Of course not to be out­done we will have old time thresh­ing and bal­ing in oper­a­tion. Beet pulp­ing and wood carv­ing will also fea­ture. These will be backed up by nu­mer­ous sta­tion­ary en­gines and dis­plays of old time ma­chin­ery.

Not to be out­done we also have a mas­sive dis­play of other makes and mod­els of cars and trac­tors from far and nearby in­di­vid­ual peo­ple and rep­re­sent­ing clubs such as Cortina Mercedes NSU Mini Ne­nagh Kil­lkenny Shrule Duhal­low Lim­er­ick Clare Kerry Cork Tip­per­ary and Water­ford our lo­cal Charleville club to name a few.

We also will have a fine dis­play of trucks and have some newly re­stored ve­hi­cles us­ing Charleville as their first out­ing are bound to create a stir of in­ter­est.

Fi­nally, and not least, we re­mem­ber the late Dick Bradley with a per­pet­ual memo­rial cup pre­sented by the Bradley fam­ily to a friend who has sup­ported us and him for many a vin­tage year.

The vin­tage sec­tion is not to be missed.
