Great day as Duagh hosts its first-ever Vin­tage Rally

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

DUAGH’S first-ever Vin­tage Rally went down an ab­so­lute treat re­cently as hun­dreds poured into the hilly vil­lage from all over North Kerry and west Lim­er­ick for a date with an­tique ma­chin­ery and a whole load of fun-filled fam­ily events.

Or­gan­is­ers say they were de­lighted with how this in­au­gu­ral event played out and it is now firmly look­ing like an an­nual fix­ture on the North Kerry cal­en­dar of com­mu­nity gath­er­ings.

It’s the Duagh De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion which is re­spon­si­ble for the Vin­tage Rally - on the back of their hugely-suc­cess­ful Trac­tor Run held on Sun­day, Septem­ber 3, last.

Such was the re­sponse to the trac­tor run that time that the As­so­ci­a­tion felt it was fairly op­por­tune to pro­vide an even big­ger plat­form for agri­cul­tural vin­tage craic.

The rally saw the vin­tage cars, mo­tor­bikes, bi­cy­cles and trucks head­ing on a 30km trip and the trac­tors travers­ing a 16km route through the rolling coun­try­side.

Scenes from the re­cent Vin­tage Rally in Duagh, en­joyed by all in the par­ish and the hun­dreds of friends who poured in from sur­round­ing ar­eas. Great ma­chin­ery, com­pe­ti­tions, mu­sic, craic and a whole heap of other fun-filled ac­tiv­i­ties made it a very strong con­tender for an an­nual North Kerry fix­ture into the fu­ture.
